    Cream comprised Jack Bruce (bass, vocals), Eric Clapton (guitar), and Ginger Baker. In their two and a half years together, they became one of the most influential bands since the Beatles. They formed in London, Clapton from John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Bruce from Graham Bond and Manfred Mann, and Baker from the Graham Bond Organisation via Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated. Fresh Cream, their debut album, confirmed the promise with a mixture of blues standards and exciting originals, reaching number 6 in the UK charts. That same year, Disraeli Gears went even higher and firmly established Cream in the USA. This superb album showed a marked progression from their first, particularly in the high standard of songwriting from Jack Bruce and his lyricist partner, former beat poet Pete Brown.
    Already rumours of a split prevailed, as news filtered back from America of fights and arguments between Baker and Bruce. One disc of the two-record set, Wheels Of Fire, captured Cream live, at their inventive and exploratory best. Only one month after its release, they announced they would disband at the end of the year. The Royal Albert Hall farewell concerts were captured on film. The posthumous Goodbye repeated the success of its predecessors. Cream came and went almost in the blink of an eye, but left an indelible mark on rock music.
