Rolling Stone 2015 Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Jam Bands: Cream Rated 4th!

Goodbye is the fourth and final studio album by the English rock band Cream. The album was released in Europe by Polydor Records and by Atco Records in the United States, debuting in Billboard on February 15, 1969. A single, "Badge," was subsequently released from the album a month later. The album was released after Cream disbanded in November 1968.

Just before Cream's third album, Wheels of Fire, was to be released, the group's manager Robert Stigwood announced that the group was going to disband after a farewell tour and a final concert at the Royal Albert Hall in November. Before the start of their farewell tour in October 1968, Cream recorded three songs at IBC Studios in London with producer Felix Pappalardi and engineer Damon Lyon-Shaw. The songs "Badge" and "Doing That Scrapyard Thing" featured Eric Clapton using a Leslie speaker, while all three recordings featured keyboard instruments played by either Jack Bruce or Felix Pappalardi.

The group started their farewell tour on October 4, 1968 in Oakland, California and 15 days later on October 19, the group performed at The Forum in Los Angeles where the three live recording on Goodbye were recorded with Felix Pappalardi and engineers Adrian Barber and Bill Halverson.

This British rock supergroup was formed in 1966 and their sound was characterized by a hybrid of blues rock, hard rock, and bourgeoning psychedelic rock as performed by Eric Clapton's innovative blues guitar, Jack Bruce's operatic voice and fluid bass playing, and Ginger Baker's jazz-influenced drumming. Cream soon evolved further, creating a trademark approach built around each musician's virtuoso playing. The band's imaginative lyrics were often written by poet Pete Brown.

"...The live music on the whole is better than that on Wheels of Fire, capturing the trio at an empathetic peak as a band. It's hard, heavy rock, with Cream digging deep into their original "Politician" with the same intensity as they do on "Sitting on Top of the World," but it's the rampaging "I'm So Glad" that illustrates how far they've come; compare it to the original studio version on Fresh Cream and it's easy to see just how much further they're stretching their improvisation. The studio side also finds them at something of a peak." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
