Cream

The Making Of Disraeli Gears DVD

Review by Gary Hill

You've really got to love this series of DVD's. When these people say classic albums, they mean it. And the cool thing is, each video in this series brings you behind the scenes in the creation of the album. I have to say that for me Wheels of Fire is probably more classic than Disraeli Gears, but they are both fine albums. Cream was really such an incredibly creative and powerful band, and to see from the inside what went on in the creation is a treat. There are interviews with basically everyone who was involved with the creation of the disc, and it is very educational. I have to say I think the coolest part for me, though, was all the vintage 1960's video clips. They also include some material from the recent reunion gigs. When you total all these things together, you get a release that is near perfection. If you like the album or Cream in general, you really should pick this one up. But be prepared to slap the CD on right afterwards, cause this will definitely get you ready to hear it again.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2006 Volume 3 at lulu.com/strangesound.
