Editorial Reviews

The 20th Century Masters series is the best-selling single-artist line in music history and is being re-released by Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) in its ground-breaking, environmentally-friendly packaging format. A first for the music industry, the standard package (both sleeve and tray) will be completely paper-recyclable, continuing the company's long-standing commitment to being "green."

To further reduce the amount of paper in the Eco-Pack, the CD booklet will no longer be offered. Official liner notes are easily accessible on the Internet at http://www.ilovethatsong.com/green.

UMe is the first North American music company to replace the traditional jewel case with recycled paperboard sleeves and the plastic tray with trays made from PaperFoam®, a new packaging technology from Shorewood Packaging, a business of International Paper, that is paper-recyclable and biodegradable. Shorewood Packaging is the first North American packaging supplier to produce disc trays from PaperFoam®.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Band, Poor Compilation July 30, 2004
Format:Audio CD
20th Century Masters- The Best of Cream(2000). Cream's Second Compilation.

Throughout the Late 60's, Cream, one of Rock's finest Rock Trios, emerged on the fledging Rock Music scene. After leaving the Yardbirds, legendary guitarist Eric Clapton teamed up with Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker to shell out some of the finest Blues Rock albums ever, from Cream's Psychadelic debut,'Fresh Cream', to the huge success of 'Disraeli Gears', and the finale of 'Goodbye'. Throughout the years, Cream has been remembered for huge hits such as 'Sunshine Of Your Love' and 'White Room', plus numerous other hit singles, so it's no surprise that 20th Century Masters has released a compilation for Cream. So, like every other 20th Century Masters compilation, does this one suck, or is surprisingly good for someone on a budget? Read on to find out!

PROS-

-CASUAL FANS GET ALL OF CREAMS BIGGEST HITS!- Here you can find such huge hits as 'I Feel Free', 'N.S.U.','Sunshine Of Your Love', 'White Room', and 'Crossroads'.

-YOU GET UNDERRATED MASTERPIECES TOO!- On this compilation you get such underrated Cream masterpieces as 'Sweet Wine', 'Spoonful', 'Strange Brew', 'Tales of Brave Ulysses', 'Politician', and 'Badge' for your listening pleasure.

-CHEAP!- Most stores have clearanced the 20th Century Masters compilations, so you can find them for very cheap prices.

-INCLUDES TRACKS FROM EVERY CREAM ALBUM!- The listener gets tracks from 'Fresh Cream', 'Wheels of Fire', 'Disraeli Gears', and 'Goodbye', making this a career-spanning retrospective!

CONS-

-MISSING WAY TOO MANY SONGS!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great music, Bad CD... July 16, 2001
By Brian
Format:Audio CD
Against my better judgement, I bought this record to be my first foray into Cream (I'm fourteen, so I'm still catching up on rock's golden years). Despite my reservations after buying the '20th Century Masters' disc of The Who - a disc that, despite the good music had poor track selection, was too short and had only a one page, poorly written biography - I went ahead and bought the same series of disc, only of not The Who, but of Cream. After all, I was saving nearly $15 by buying this one as opposed to 'Strange Brew' or one of the other complete greatest hits discs available. But, my bargain hunting mode just kicked in, and I bought the '20th Century Masters' greatest hits instead of one of the others. As soon as I got the receipt, I was kicking myself.
You see, apparantly the big thing these days for the big multi-million dollar corporations is ripping off it's customers - in most cases the customers that have been loyal to them from day one, even the ones who stood by them during the entire music software deal (like me). I have no problem with record companies' normal purpose, but when they begin doing something like this, it becomes mildly disheartening. They even have the formula for doing it down pat. Take a band's real greatest hits disc, drop everything but the MEGA hits, add a poorly written one page biography (complete, often with historical inaccuracies), and slap the thing onto a bargain bin shelf for $7.99 (Cdn.).
The music itself, however, shines through all this. This being my introduction to Cream other than a couple of covers of 'Sunshine Of Your Love' by Jimi Hendrix that I've heard on his BBC Sessions disc (as well as a few concert bootlegs, but we're not going to delve into detail), I was quite impressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars This disc is essential for beginners, regardless... June 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I never really thought of Eric Clapton as a 'heavy-metal' guitar player, but then again that term meant something else back when these records first came out. Also, Jack Bruce is a pretty good singer, and the melodic poetry of the lyrics and the mostly understandable renditions shocked me from what was supposed to be a hard and heavy group. My favorite song is "Crossroads"-that's just ultimate must-have blues. "White Room" and "Badge" are cool too, and I remember the days when KLOU 103.3 used to play these tracks as rock'n'roll oldies--well, those days psychedelia didn't hold any connotations, so it was all good. I just wish we could get all those great oldies back, but I think they are starting to. This disc has a beautiful sound, and I kind of like Cream better than the Who now, but please don't confuse Eric Clapton with Jimi Hendrix. (Okay, they're both great, but...)

5.0 out of 5 stars An Exceptional Release April 20, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I generally try to stay away from the 20th Century Masters series. On the whole they are cheap and incomplete. But this one is the exception. This CD hits all of Cream's big hits, including "Crossroads," "I Feel Free" and "Sunshine of Your Love." I think it helps that Cream was only together for a short time, so they didn't have that much material in the first place. Therefore even the 20th Century Masters people could pull off a decent compilation. On the whole I would recommend this CD for new or casual fans. More advanced Cream listeners won't find anything new or surprising here. I also recommend picking up a live album, such as the two volumes of "Live Cream" or the reunion concert.
