Cream's Fourth and Final Studio Album!

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

Goodbye (also called Goodbye Cream) is the fourth and final original 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.

"...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

SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.

Housed in a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 1/2" hinged-lid box which includes inside a Mini LP Jacket and booklet with English/Japanese lyrics. The obi surrounding the album replicates the one included in the Japanese first pressing LP.

Features:
• SHM-SACD
• 2-channel Single Layer SACD
• Two-channel SACD layer only, to secure enough reflectance and not to compress DSD file.
• Label of the disc is printed with a special green ink called 'Onsho Shiyou,' which minimizes diffuse reflection.
• Carefully selected master audio is used, from existing DSD files to newly converted from analog tapes.
• This disc will ONLY work on a Super Audio Disc Player

Selections:
1. I'm So Glad
2. Politician
3. Sitting On Top Of The World
4. Badge
5. Doing That Scrapyard Thing
6. What A Bringdown
