Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 114/500!

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

Disraeli Gears is the second studio album by the English rock band Cream. It was released in November 1967 and went on to reach No. 5 on the U.K. Albums Chart. It was also their American breakthrough, becoming a massive seller there in 1968, reaching No. 4 on the American charts. The album was No. 1 for two weeks on the Australian album chart and was listed as the No. 1 album of 1968 by Cash Box in the year-end album chart in the United States. The album features the two singles "Strange Brew" and "Sunshine of Your Love."

The album was ranked No. 114 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. VH1 also named it their 87th greatest album of all time in 2001. In 1999, the album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

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.

"...Disraeli Gears is a quintessential heavy rock album of the '60s. Yes, its psychedelic trappings tie it forever to 1967, but the imagination of the arrangements, the strength of the compositions, and especially the force of the musicianship make this album transcend its time as well." — AllMusic
