Live Cream is live compilation album from blues rock group Cream that includes one short studio track.
Like Wheels Of Fire, it features songs from the Fillmore West and Winterland in San Francisco in March 1968.
Cream Live Cream
- N.S.U. – 10:15 (originally on the studio album Fresh Cream)
- Sleepy Time Time – 6:49 (Fresh Cream)
- Sweet Wine – 15:16 (Fresh Cream)
- Rollin’ and Tumblin’ – 6:42 (Fresh Cream)
- Hey Lawdy Mama – 2:48 (studio recording)
All four live songs are extended versions of tracks from their first album Fresh Cream.
Unlike Wheels Of Fire that included the signature blues Crossroads and Spoonful, there are many other songs performed by Cream that fans would want a prime time live recording of. However it doesn’t include a never ending drum solo!
Overall Rating For Live Cream
There is the potential to have a fantastic live album by Cream but in my opinion, none of them stand up as essential purchases.
