Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 203/500!
Cream's Brilliant 1968 Album In a Special Golden Gatefold Edition!
Includes the generation-defining "White Room", one of the single greatest moments in rock and roll!
Like the bands previous two releases, Creams third album, Wheels Of Fire (1968), also topped the charts. Although it was criticized at the time for being a somewhat disjointed album, divided into one LP of new studio material and one LP of live material, it redeems itself because "White Room", has gone down in the annals of history as one of the Great Moments in Rock & Roll.
In 2003, "Wheels of Fire" was ranked number 203 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
"Half studio album, half live album, Wheels of Fire not only has the definitive Cream tune "White Room" but it is also incontrovertible proof of Eric Clapton's skill. "Crossroads," a live reworking of Robert Johnson's blues classic, features one of the most blazing guitar solos ever recorded." - www.rollingstone.com
