Fresh Cream is the debut studio album by British jazz blues rock group Cream, originally released in December 1966 via Reaction Records, Polydor Records and ATCO Records.

Cream is a British jazz blues rock "supergroup" formed in 1966 with Eric Clapton (guitars, vocals), Jack Bruce (bass, vocals) and Ginger Baker (drums) that had a turbulent existence until they broke up in 1968. Their musical style is influenced heavily by jazz, blues and rock music, and they produced four studio albums and a number of classic songs in their short existence.

Their debut single “Wrapping Paper” was a comparatively strange pop song that made a dent in the singles charts on the strength of its instant appeal. This was a paradox to the band members individual mastery of their instruments and their ability to jam and improvise using their blues and jazz backgrounds.

Their second single “I Feel Free”, released in parallel with their debut album was a song that unleashed such energy that it could only be matched by Jimi Hendrix.

Their debut album Fresh Cream was released on producer Robert Stigwood’s record label Reaction Records in the UK in both mono and stereo versions.

The album confirmed their promise that they were not what they seemed, another colourful pop group singing songs of tangerine bicycles. With a mixture of blues standards and exciting original compositions, the album became a record that every credible music fan should own. The single “Spoonful” a reworking of a Willie Dixon classic, became a radio staple and has become a Cream classic in its own right. The Ginger Baker original “Sweet Wine” was released as the second single from the album.

The album reached #6 on the UK Album charts, #10 in Australia and #39 in the US where the album was released with a different tracklisting to the UK version.

This album would lay the foundation for their superb follow-up Disraeli Gears (1967) that would demonstrate the superb songwriting skills of Jack Bruce with his lyricist partner Pete Brown.

This album is regarded as a classic and was ranked at #101 by Rolling Stone magazine on their list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time in 2003.

Check out the tracks:  Spoonful”; “Sweet Wine (Live)”; “I’m So Glad”; andRollin’ and Tumblin’.

This LP record is a “Back to Black” series reissue on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl with replicated original artwork and digital download code, pressed in Europe via Polydor Records.
