Album Review: Cream’s ‘Disraeli Gears’ is the Quintessential Soundtrack of the 1960’s

Cream is perhaps the greatest trio of musicians to ever be assembled in a single band. The talent from Eric Clapton on guitar, Jack Bruce on bass and Ginger Baker on drums is undeniable, and while their chemistry as a group together was far from perfect, the trio has certainly shown flashes of brilliance together.…
