    I agree with the quote below from alfie_noakes : the bass line has been running around my skull for decades. Halp!

    Ther'll never be another group as good as Cream. Period. Jack Bruce ,Ginger Baker and of course ,the one and only Eric Clapton. Too bad they were only together for a couple of years ,but produced some of the greatest rock music ever.

    Fucking amazing lyrics here.. "I support the left.... thought I'm leanin', leanin' to the right". Sounds so nonchalant about his political views, whatever is more convenient or profitable, he'll lean towards. The Politician just says he's left wing so he get's the votes. Once he's in office, he can do whatever he wants, like it or not. Fuck the 1%, Occupy the planet. Peace + Love

    "The Very Best of Cream" is like saying "The Best of the Very Best", which is true in this case.
