Sadder than Uplifting

The Plot.

After nearly four decades of not playing together, Cream reunited in May 2005 in London to play at Royal Albert Hall.

This highlights the four nights Cream mesmerized audiences at that venue.

Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce perform the classics - I'm So Glad, Spoonful, Outside Woman Blues, Badge, Sweet Wine, Rollin' and Tumblin', Born Under a Bad Sign, We're Going Wrong, White Room, Toad, Sunshine of Your Love, Crossroads and others.

Includes interviews with the three legendary rockers.

Well there are two ways to look at this film. One is you'll get to see rockers who are real musicians unlike just about any of the new clowns out on the charts today.

The other side of this is that they are way out of their prime and it's clear by looking at them they did this for the money. It's a bit sad. Why not do a new tune instead of just playing all your aging old already recorded stuff?

To be honest, i've never been a fan of Cream. Or Clapton. Or Bruce. But i do think Ginger Baker is the real deal and likely one of the best drummers ever.

Unfortunately that's not enough to bring this aging lady to light.
