The Very Best of Cream - Review

Cream is no doubt legendary and rightly so. But honestly, Cream recorded as many average to bad songs as good ones among their four studio albums. If you want to avoid the clunkers The Very Best of Cream is an outstanding collection that summarizes their career in a fairly definitive manner, which includes their original songs and several blues covers they played extremely well, such as Howlin' Wolf's Sitting on Top of the World.

There has been many previous compilations of Cream previously released such as the twelve track CD Strange Brew: The Very Best of Cream; Conversely, this album contains twenty songs. Unless you are planning to collect all of the studio releases The Very Best of Cream is the obvious choice. ~ by Barry Small
