CREAM – ” The Goodbye Tour: Live at the Forum 1968 “

Posted: April 22, 2021 in MUSIC
I’m So Glad: Cream’s “The Goodbye Tour: Live at the Forum 1968” Arrives as 2-LP Set

Cream was a shambling circus of diverse personalities who happened to find that catalyst together…any one of us could have played unaccompanied for a good length of time. So you put the three of us together in front of an audience willing to dig it limitlessly, we could have gone on forever…And we did…just going for the moon every time we played.”

That’s how Eric Clapton described his time in one of rock’s first supergroups. And while Cream released four fine albums during their four years together –”Fresh Cream, Disraeli Gears, Wheels of Fire”, and “Goodbye”– it’s onstage that the band really got the chance to shine with extended blues jams, solos, and psychedelic twists and turns.

This Friday, April 23rd, UMe/Polydor records will release one shining example of the band’s onstage might, “Goodbye Tour: Live At The Forum 1968”, as a limited edition, 2-LP set on blue vinyl. Released last year as part of the 4-CD Goodbye Tour: Live 1968 box set, this marks the first official standalone release of the landmark Los Angeles gig from October 19th, 1968.

The concert was mastered from the original 1968 analogue mix reels by Kevin Reeves at Universal Mastering, Nashville, TN. The 2-LP set is available exclusively from uDiscover Music’s online storefront.
