This past weekend my dad mentioned that he’d heard that Cream was going to do a reunion set on the condition that they included some new material. Although I hold out little hope for the results, there’s a small part of me that hopes it rocks like Cream Live II or the Bruce/Baker/Moore tracks on Cities of the Heart.
It appears that Clapton has been talking up the reunion, but there still aren’t any dates at the Royal Albert Hall. My feeling is that the show will be all glossy and polished like the stuff from their induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Sure they were good, but it was too mature and there was way too much reservation so it just kind sucked.
If it does happen, I’ll certainly give it a listen. If it sucks, I’ve still got the Ginger Baker Trio.
