Classic Rock Catalog: Cream
Although it was a less than perfect union of personalities, Cream was an inspired gathering of musical talent. Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce started working together in 1966, and by the middle of 1968, they were ready to call it quits. The four studio albums they released during their brief life, and four live albums in the years since their breakup, form one of classic rock's most enduring and influential catalogs.
