Stunning UK Blue & Silver Label Original Housed In A Front Laminated Cover. A1/B1 Stampers. Finest Copy We Have Ever Had In Stock. “Fresh Cream Represents So Many Different Firsts, It's Difficult To Keep Count. Cream, Of Course, Was The First Supergroup, But Their First Album Not Only Gave Birth To The Power Trio, It Also Was Instrumental In The Birth Of Heavy Metal And The Birth Of Jam Rock. That's A Lot Of Weight For One Record And, Like A Lot Of Pioneering Records, Fresh Cream Doesn't Seem Quite As Mighty As What Would Come Later, Both From The Group And Its Acolytes. In Retrospect, The Moments On The LP That Are A Bit Unformed -- In Particular, The Halting Waltz Of "Dreaming" Never Achieves The Sweet Ethereal Atmosphere It Aspires To -- Stand Out More Than The Innovations, Which Have Been So Thoroughly Assimilated Into The Vocabulary Of Rock & Roll, But Fresh Cream Was A Remarkable Shift Forward In Rock Upon Its 1966 Release And It Remains Quite Potent. Certainly At This Early Stage The Trio Was Still Grounded Heavily In Blues, Only Fitting Given Guitarist Eric Clapton's Stint In John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Which Is Where He First Played With Bassist Jack Bruce, But Cream Never Had The Purist Bent Of Mayall, And Not Just Because They Dabbled Heavily In Psychedelia. The Rhythm Section Of Bruce And Ginger Baker Had A Distinct Jazzy Bent To Their Beat; This Isn't Hard And Pure, It's Spongy And Elastic, Giving The Musicians Plenty Of Room To Roam. This Fluidity Is Most Apparent On The Blues Covers That Take Up Nearly Half The Record, Especially On "Spoonful," Where The Swirling Instrumental Interplay, Echo, Fuzz Tones, And Overwhelming Volume Constitute True Psychedelic Music, And Also Points Strongly Toward The Guitar Worship Of Heavy Metal.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG.
