There was a thread recently about Ginger Baker's Airforce that had some positive replies and Jack Bruce had a band w/ Mick Taylor for a while.

Sorry to say that about covers my knowledge of those guys post Cream.

thats kinda sad because i have the first airforce album and a compilation that has basically everything the baker gurvitz army did and they are fantastic. i also have the ginger baker trio album "going back home" which is good jazz. i was thinking about getting the other trio album "falling off the roof" and "ginger bakers african force". also maybe the BBM cd. baker is my favorite drummer

I have some recent jazzy stuff by GInger Baker which is quite nice.

Jack Bruce's solo stuff is awesome, at least the 70s material. His band sounded sort of like Yes with Jack Bruce singing. I highly recommend "Jack Bruce Band Live at Manchester Free Trade Hall 1975" which does indeed feature Mick Taylor on guitar. Nice psychedleic prog rock.

Cream was great, the Best Of Cream was one of the 1st LPs I bought past 1920 Fruitgum Company and Ina Gadda Da Vida.
My Live Cream LP is cherished.

I like the Jack Bruce/Robin Trower CD's BLT, Truce and Seven Moons and Bruce/Bogert/Moore CD as well.

Although I love absolutely everything from Cream, I feel that their best effort was their 1966 debut FRESH CREAM. A bit underrated compared to DISRAELI GEARS and WHEELS OF FIRE. It was their purest blues LP, hardest rocking of all, and free of psychedelia and other embellishments. Clapton has always stated Cream was a blues band at heart and it shows in the teriffic renditions of "I'm So Glad" "Sleepy Time" "Spoonful" and "Cat Squirrel." Jack Bruce's bluesy tenor shined perfectly on this album and Ginger's drumming was the best.

FRESH CREAM also contains my favorite guitar solos. "Sweet Wine" has some amazing guitar work from Clapton. Also "NSU" "I Feel Free."

DISRAELI GEARS and WHEELS OF FIRE are also classics in their on right. Though with the help of Felix Pappalardi and others, there was more expansion in their sound and instrumentation.... other instruments and a less blues base (in the studio). GOODBYE has its share of great moments but it was obvious that by October 1968 the band was on
the verge of a breakup.

Only two years together and quite an impressive studio output by Cream. One band that will never pass us by ever again.

Fresh Cream is my favorite studio album too. Duane Allman had good things to say about it.

Cream in concert was the thing...set the model for improv rock.

They were killin' at MSG.

I love Cream. It's pretty amazing the influence they had, the catalog of songs they put together - and the mark they left on music, forever - for being together for like 23 months. It was like magic..

Give West, Bruce, and Laing a listen. After Cream, and Mountain these guys did some serious jamming together. I don't own the lp's anymore, but I had them back in the 70's. I need to pick these up again in my collection.

Anybody in the Raleigh area - Jack Bruce (with unspecified 'special guests') is playing in at the Koka Booth ampitheatre on September 20. It's part of a 2 day festival put on by the rock and roll hall of fame. It looks like a real good time.

I'm really upset. I lost 99% of my Cream material when I moved home. I still have the reunion at Royal Albert Hall dvd, but I lost BBC Sessions, Royal Albert Hall cd, Very Best of, and so forth. Remind me never to move in with a physicotic (sp?) girl again. I have a feeling she has all of those cds.

Cream was a great trio. Disreali Gears is one my all time favorite albums.

Let's not forget the 2005 Cream Reunion DVD. GREAT STUFF, and one of my favorite music DVD's. They really recaptured the magic.

When I picked up the 2005 Reunion CD I had high hopes, but even that was exceeded. Probably even exceeded theirs..I couldn't believe how great they sounded! Blew me away!

The absolute high point, IMO, came on "Badge". After the second verse, that looonnng pause.............The crowd starts applauding, then Eric's Strat comes blasting through a Leslie. Cream in it's full glory, back again!!

When I grab that CD off the rack, it burns my hand. Then, shoots rainbow-colored sparks in my face.....

i love cream. love clapton's, jack's and ginger's solo work too. i was lucky enough to see jack bruce and ginger baker together with bernie worell on keys and blues saraceno on guitar back in the early 90's. a memorable show for some great music and the fact that i got to witness firsthand that famous jack bruce temper.
jack was p.o.'d at the sound guy all night. his frustration finally got the better of him and when saraceno messed up the solo on "sunshine of your love" he went ballistic. wound up sending his mic stand flying into the audience and smashing his DX7 keyboard with his bass. ginger was in the back just playing and looking as if "oh well i've seen this all before".
if you're looking for some solo jack check out "harmony row" or "shadows in the air". also recommended is ginger's "going back home" with bill frisell and charlie haden.

honestly how influential was blind faith? not very. everyone in the band was already a star and therefore had a following before an album even was released
