2014 7 X 180 Gram heavyweight audiophile vinyl LP pressing reissue. Cream: 1966-1972, which brings together this epic band's six, career-spanning studio and live albums together in a vinyl box set for the very first time. Each LP retains authenticity with original artwork. All are housed in a structured slipcase box. 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, the late 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.
