I'd like to witness this classic Cream concert opening:

[Stage dark except for lights from amps]
"Driving in my car,
Smoking a cigar;
The only time I'm happy's when I play my guitar;
[Lights explode on as Ginger smashes at his drums and Eric machine-guns those big, crunchy chords into the chorus]
Yeah, yeah, yeah;
Yeah, yeah, yeah."

This is from Colin(Harvey) posted in the Lounge on the Trades Forum


Well . . . all I can say is if there was no "F" in awesome . . . there is now . . . because Eric, Jack and Ginger were Effin Awsome tonight!!!

As for a set list . . . I need Cujo to lend me his thingy next time . . . I started to try to memorize it but gave up . . . suffice it to say they played pretty much all of their catalogue (the only exception that I can think of is Strange Brew which for some reason didn't feature). They opened with "I'm So Glad" at 8-10 and wound up the one set show with White Room at 10-50 . . . they then came back for a "Sunshine of Your Love" encore and finished at 10-05. In between we had "Badge", "Crossroads", "On Top Of The World" and even "Pressed Rat & Warthog" with Ginger on vocals, there was also an excellent rendition of "Stormy Monday" with Eric on vocals. I'm sure a proper set list will be available tomorrow so I won't tax my befuddled brain any more at the moment.

As excited as I was at the prospect of going to this show, I was also apprehensive as to how time may have taken its toll on the guys. I knew Eric was still performing well, but had not heard anything by Ginger of late, and of course Jacks health problems and transplant of a couple of years ago are well known. I need not have worried however, as they were as tight a unit as if they had never split up, Jacks vocals were strong, and his base counterplays as challenging to Erics lead riffs as they always were, and Gingers drumming, whilst perhaps less flambouyant than it used to be, was nevertheless spot on in precision, and when he finally got around to doing his solo on the last number of the evening he proved that he still can run around the drums quicker than an octopus with two sticks in each tentacle!!!

I guess the best analogy is actually the ABB, gone is the raw drive and ambition of young lads with a love of the blues and a dream to fulfill but in their place are ultimate professionals who have learned every trick of their trade and are now doing it for fun. Eric, Jack and Ginger had a smile on their faces throughout the show, and it will be a long time before you wipe the smile off mine . . . "F" in Awesome

Yeah . . . in their own way they stretched out a few . . . not quite the jams that Derek & Warren do . . . but there was some nice stuff from Eric in all the usual places on songs such as White Room, Badge etc. There was also some really nice bass work by Jack, his fingers were suffering towards the end and obviously causing him a problem, but despite that he still went at every song with great enthusiasm.

sick, i guess they just won't be mixing up the sets much if they played all of the classics tonight, but whatever, i'm still really looking forward to this dvd. i just hope it is more improvised jams than what clapton did on his last tour which apparently had each solo not written out note for note, but by bar and by theme. but cream is sick, i really can't wait to hear this. great review colin.

One can only hope that the fun and their smiles will become enthusiasm to do a show or two on American soil.

I doubt it in the ways of their health.. they want to play where they last played, reunite, and put it in the past for those that get to attend these shows to remember.

Toad with amazing Ginger Baker drum solo for more than 5 minutes long
Eric seems to use "Blackie" stratocaster as his guitar exclude on Rollin' and Tumblin'

Your memory is not failing you. They did not play many songs in concert. They seemed to stretch out on 5 or 6 and that was it.

This setlist looks great only missing Tales of Brave Ulysses...

I'll call Colin on Friday and have him post the setlist and my review from the Friday Closing night show.
