Cream Disraeli Treat: For all the 'Classic Albums' documentaries they show from time to time on TV, Cream's 'Disraeli Gears' has yet to take its turn. But even if it is shown, they won't spoil us with the extras. So, if ever you've got a few quid spare, or need a hint to drop for a birthday (or father's day) present; the DVD of the above is quite a stunner.
Cream fans will be familiar with the 'We're Going Wrong' track on the album, which, incidentally, Jack Bruce wrote after a row with his then wife, Janet Godfrey. It's a very moving and powerful song played by the 3-piece line-up, but for one of the DVD extras, Jack sings and plays it on piano. In the right frame of mind it would move most people to tears, so not only for this reason, but simply as it is such a Classic Album, it is well worth getting a copy.
