Cream - The Alternative Album 1966-1967



BANDA "CREAM" DE ERIC CLAPTON, GINGER BAKER E JACK BRUCE EM SEU ALBUM ALTERNATIVO!! DISCO DE GRAVAÇÃOES RARAS E OBSCURAS ONDE TEM VERSÕES QUE NUNCA FORAM LANÇADAS E OUTRAS EM VERSÕES DIFERENTES DAS ORIGINAIS!! UMA MANEIRA ALTERNATIVA DE ESCUTAR A BANDA CREAM!! ERIC CLAPTON E CIA EM VERSÃO BASEMENT TAPES!! "GRAVAÇÕES DE PORÃO" COM QUALIDADE DE ESTÚDIO!! BOM VENENO!!

It is unclear whether this is a bootleg or just an unofficial release of out-takes and rehearsals that are now out of copyright (in Europe at least). The record companies pressured shops and distributers so I assume the latter. Its not a critical buy, even for serious fans. For the diehards it's interesting. Two tracks are now officially available on "Those Were The Days". Sound quality is poor especially on White Room which sounds like a review dub rather than a copy of a master. I'm not going to review each track just make some comments.

Lawdy Mama is the superior previously unreleased version now available on "Those Were The Days" as is the Fallstaff Beer commercial. Rollin' and Tumblin' and Cat's Squirrel (minus harmonica and guitar overdub - raw and tasty!) are good enough to be considered alternate takes. The Coffee Song breaks down as Jack and Eric crack up over the ludicrous lyrics/melody. Sweet Wine, Toad, Wrapping Paper and I Feel Free are rehearsals. You Make Me Feel is Jack and Eric working up one of Jack's songs despite Ginger's disinterested drumming. These tracks come from the Fresh Cream to Gears sessions. Falstaff and White Room are from the July-August 1968 Wheels sessions. White Room is a complete version which had the lead guitar and lead vocals completely redubbed during later sessions. The guitar is non wah wah which thus represents a significantly different version. It can be considered version 1 which would be nice if it was a decently mastered release.
