Editorial Reviews

On guitar: Eric Clapton. Lead singer and bass guitarist: Jack Bruce. On drums: Ginger Baker. Their motto: ''Forget the message, forget the lyrics, and just play.'' Their name: Cream. For two glorious years, Cream's high-volume blues, jamming and extended solos blazed a path into rock history. But the time to part had come, and all that remained was one wild, unforgettable concert. Now you are there, on November 26, 1968, inside London's illustrious Royal Albert Hall, jammed to its gilded rafters with rock fans ready for the final concert of what many still consider the greatest band that ever played. Digitally Remastered and a new 5.1 Stereo Surround Sound Mix for the first time EVER! Also includes 2.0 Stereo audio.

Customer Reviews

The picture quality is no different either.

Personally, I didn't bother with the reunion concert from some years back: I couldn't stomach "The White Room" with no wah-wah from Clapton!!
Greg Laxer
I've seen some of the footage and the video and audio, albeit B&W, are first rate.

I was fooled by the description of "digitally remastered and new 5.1 surround sound for the first time" I have the earlier extended concert on dvd with dts surround that sounds so much better. The picture quality is no different either. The "new" 5.1 surround is like listening to a concert from outside a stadium that you arrived late to. The vocals, bass, and guitar sound like they are in an echo chamber, and Ginger Baker's cymbals are all mushed up together so you can't tell they are cymbals. Keep your money. Stick with the old version! I gave it a star only because it is Cream live. Anyone else and it would have received nothing at all.

What a maddening video this is. If you want to get a good look at Jack Bruce's tonsils, then this is the movie for you. If you want to watch the band play and interplay, you'd best look elsewhere. I think it should be an international requirement that no music video should ever be shot or edited without musicians involved. This video is a prime example of why: all tight shots of faces, all with fast cuts, and cute psychedelic camera treatment. The sound is cavernous and indistinct, but full. The interviews may be the best reason to get this. They provide an interesting insight into the band (especially if you supplement this with Beware of Mr. Baker). Ultimately I gave this two stars because any video of Cream is valuable. It's just maddening that it isn't better.

Thank you, 'michael b.' for confirming my worst fear. Tragically, the audio for this film has ALWAYS been a disaster, ear-witnessed by this reviewer from his first encounter with the film in Cambridge, MA in 1969. At that time I attributed the problem to the space in which it was being exhibited, a sports arena. But my experience many years later, with the LaserDisc and then the initial DVD version, proved that the original audio recording job must have been horribly botched. You can "remaster" a horribly botched recording until the cows come home, it's still gonna be a botched piece of audio!! If you're into Cream, you should own the film of this concert; just be aware of the audio issue. Personally, I didn't bother with the reunion concert from some years back: I couldn't stomach "The White Room" with no wah-wah from Clapton!! But maybe that's just quirky me. You, I believe, are free to pursue it for audio superior to the farewell concert. -- JAZZ OFFICER SPAAK

This dvd contains live concert footage as well as behind the scenes comments from the legendary band members Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker and Eric Clapton. This farewell concert is a must have for true fans of the band CREAM.

I'm a big fan of Cream, so my appreciation will be biased in favor of this film - if you like hearing Cream's live playing, you should probably like this - a bit dated as far as amateur attempt at early psychedelics in filming, plus they need to stop jumping around with the camera shots of the member's of the band & just show them playing!
