Overall Rating Of Live Cream Vol 2
I really wish the tracks on volumes 1 and 2 combined with the live stuff on Wheels Of Fire & Goodbye could be pulled together to make one definitive live Cream album from the time that they were at their absolute peak. The 2005 reunion concert is nice but…
It looks like you’ll have to do it yourself on your iPod.
