Cream: Disraeli Gears
Cream conquered America with their second album, Disraeli Gears (1967), and along with The Jimi Hendrix Experience popularized the power trio.
Cream featured Eric Clapton on lead guitar and vocals, Jack Bruce on bass and vocals, and Ginger Baker on drums.
The chemistry of these three was volatile and provided for some phenomenal live jams, but Disraeli Gears actually featured their talents in constructing tight pop songs in the studio.
Sunshine Of Your Love and Strange Brew were both big hits for the English rockers, and the album topped the US year end sales chart in 1968.
Tales Of Brave Ulysses, We’re Going Wrong, and Outside Woman Blues were some other great tunes on this psychedelic time capsule.
