Fresh Cream

Last night Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker returned to London’s Royal Albert Hall for the first time since November 26, 1968. The Cream reunion, which began with Im So Glad and concluded a little more than two hours later with a Sunshine of Your Love encore, featured nineteen songs. The band proved tentative with regard to improvisation although three shows yet remain so perhaps they will open up the music a bit. Ginger Baker, whose Pressed Rat and Wart Hog (from Wheels of Fire) offered one of the evenings surprises, proved rather spry at age 65 as he closed out the set with a solo on Toad. Other songs included originals N.S.U. Sleepy Time Time, and White Room as well as such covers as Spoonful Crossroads and Rollin’ & Tumblin’.
