Rolling Stone 2015 Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Jam Bands: Cream Rated 4th!
Following hot on the heels of "Disraeli Gears", "Fresh Cream", and the double "Wheels Of Fire", Creams final offering was a compilation of some of their greatest moments. "Goodbye" not only features Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker actually smiling on the cover but also shows them dressed up in some rather snazzy suits complete with hats and walking sticks - a far cry from the serious image they generally portrayed.
The actual album is brilliant of course, containing such stalwarts as "Im So Glad", "Politician", "Sitting On Top Of The World" and "Badge" plus a couple of newer tracks in "Doing That Scrapyard Thing" and "What A Bringdown". "Goodbye" is about as good a way of bowing out than the usual method of a group either imploding or playing reunion tours ad infinitum!
