Cream are celebrating the 50th anniversary of its 1966 debut, Fresh Cream, with a four-disc deluxe edition

The reissue will include three CDs featuring mono and stereo mixes of the original LP, plus singles from that period, alternate takes and outtakes, early EPs and recordings from the group's BBC sessions. The fourth disc will be a Blu-ray audio version of the mono and stereo version and bonus tracks. The reissue also comes with a hardback book featuring photos and liner notes.

Fresh Cream is the first album by Cream, released in 1966. Laid down at the height of the UK blues boom, Fresh Cream covers the kind of territory you might expect from three of the most respected players on the scene at the time. With Clapton fresh just from his time with John Mayall, Ginger Baker leaving behind the R'n'B backwaters of Graham Bond Organisation, and a woefully under-employed Jack Bruce hightailing it from the increasingly pop-leaning Manfred Mann, the electric blues was their natural turf. Highlights include the racing harmonica work-out, and the call and response excitements on Muddy Waters’ “Rollin’ and Tumblin’”, a spine-tingled vocal on the Willie Dixon classic, “Spoonful”, as well as the self-penned “Sleepy Time Time” which gives Clapton a free hand to wake up all and sundry. The traditional standard, "Cat’s Squirrel" is given a rousing treatment, showing how well these players meshed. This 3CD/Blu-Ray Deluxe release includes various alternate/new stereo mixes. Also featured is previously unreleased BBC sessions. The Blu-Ray audio disc contains 24/96 High-Resolution Audio. Sleeve notes from highly respected Rolling Stone writer David Fricke.

As far as reissues go, this one has everything you’d want from Cream’s debut record in spades.
It’s sort of a copyright clearing issue, sure, but if you’re the kind of person wanting to hear every note Clapton ever played, it won’t steer you wrong. Recommended
