Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 205/500!

Cream 1966-1972 traces the rise and fall of the jam-friendly power trio, which brought Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce together for a tumultuous (yet prolific) brief run before splintering due to tension between band members. They've reunited periodically over the years, most recently for a series of shows at the Royal Albert Hall in London in 2005.

Wheels of Fire is a 1968 double album by the British rock band Cream, consisting of a studio and a live record. It reached No. 3 in the United Kingdom and No. 1 in the United States, becoming the first platinum-selling double album. It was ranked number 205 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

This British rock supergroup was formed in 1966 and their sound was characterized by a hybrid of blues rock, hard rock, and bourgeoning psychedelic rock as performed by Eric Clapton's innovative blues guitar, Jack Bruce's operatic voice and fluid bass playing, and Ginger Baker's jazz-influenced drumming. Cream soon evolved further, creating a trademark approach built around each musician's virtuoso playing. The band's imaginative lyrics were often written by poet Pete Brown.

"...Wheels of Fire finds the trio in full fight, capturing every side of their multi-faceted personality...in many ways Wheels of Fire is indeed filled with Cream's very best work, since it also captures the fury and invention (and indulgence) of the band at its peak on the stage and in the studio." — AllMusic
