Wheels of Fire is the name of a double album recorded by Cream. The release was largely successful, scoring the band a #3 peak in the UK and a #1 in the US, and became the world's first platinum-selling double album. If Disraeli Gears was the album where Cream came into their own, its successor, Wheels of Fire, finds the trio in full fight, capturing every side of their multi-faceted personality, even hinting at the internal pressures that soon would… read more

    I agree with DavidSmith98. I've always thought this was a good album but recently I've realized I actually prefer it to Disraeli Gears and Fresh Cream. The live stuff is great and the studio portion of the record is the best material of their career.

    Note 1: Some pressings of this album contain an alternative version of “Passing the Time”. This “long version” is extended by 67 seconds, but also differs from the “extended version” included on Those Were the Days, which is longer by a further 8 seconds. >> Note 2: Original US pressings of Wheels of Fire incorrectly listed the running time of “Deserted Cities of the Heart” at 4:36.

    Note 3: Side 1 tracks 1 and 3 and Side 2 tracks 2, 3, 4 and 5 of the studio album were processed with the Haeco-CSG system. Also processed was “Anyone For Tennis”, which was recorded at the same sessions and appears on some versions of the album. Haeco-CSG was intended to make stereo recordings that were fully compatible with mono playback equipment. The unfortunate side effect is that it “blurs” the stereo imaging of musical parts mixed to the phantom center channel. Using modern digital audio processing software it is possible to reverse the Haeco-CSG effect and restore the original intended sound quality.

    Note 4: Original album pressings list “John Group” as the author of “Traintime.” The “John Group” appellation dates back to Jack Bruce’s tenure with the Graham Bond Organisation (with whom Bruce originally recorded the song in 1965), and was used by that band to ensure that members other than Bond received songwriting royalties. The song is based on a vintage blues by Peter Chatman.
