Fresh Cream is the first album by Cream, released in 1966. Laid down at the height of the UK blues boom, Fresh Cream covers the kind of territory you might expect from three of the most respected players on the scene at the time. With Clapton fresh just from his time with John Mayall, Ginger Baker leaving behind the R'n'B backwaters of Graham Bond Organisation, and a woefully under-employed Jack Bruce hightailing it from the increasingly pop-leaning Manfred Mann, the electric blues was their natural turf. Highlights include the racing harmonica work-out, and the call and response excitements on Muddy Waters' "Rollin' and Tumblin'", a spine-tingled vocal on the Willie Dixon classic, "Spoonful", as well as the self-penned "Sleepy Time Time" which gives Clapton a free hand to wake up all and sundry. The traditional standard, "Cat's Squirrel" is given a rousing treatment, showing how well these players meshed. This 3CD/Blu-Ray Deluxe release includes various alternate/new stereo mixes. Also featured is previously unreleased BBC sessions. The Blu-Ray audio disc contains 24/96 High-Resolution Audio. Sleeve notes from highly respected Rolling Stone writer David Fricke.
