The historic Farewell Concert at Albert Hall in London by one of rock's greatest groups has been dynamically recorded in this film by Robert Stigwood. The group, composed of Eric Clapton on lead guitar, Jack Bruce on bass and lead vocals, and Ginger Baker on drums, give an electrifying performance that is as exciting to watch as it is to hear. Each of the musicians has gone on to become a superstar in his own right, and we get to see fascinating backstage interviews with all of them. Highlights include the long version of "Sunshine of Your Love" and "White Room" along with other Cream hits.Written by
A Textbook Case of Why Rock Documentaries Are So Bad
Very disappointing. There actually isn't much music because far too much time is taken up with pointless and unrevealing interviews. And much of the music that is shown is Ginger Baker soloing. Clapton & Bruce were actually shown playing for barely 20 minutes. When they were, it was in extreme closeup, often with faux psychedelic effects. What do I want to see when a great guitarist or bass player plays? I want to see their hands. I want to see their technique. Instead, we got closeups of contorted faces. A total waste of time.
