Just to let you know, last night I saw CREAM in NYC.
My seats were in Section 223, Row A. On Clapton's side of stage. Cost
me $500, from the internet website StubHub.com. The seats were well worth the money.
They were FANTASTIC!!
I mean it sincerely. The entire audience stood up for the first two
songs, I'm So Glad + Spoonful.
The band was BETTER than in R.A.H. in May, (I went to see the 5/5/05
concert),and last night the-> WAH WAH pedal, was played, twice!!
They played > "Tales of Brave Ulyssess" and people went nuts!! It
I was so happy to hear it, as they did not perform this in London. The
solo was old style Eric, vintage '68..........................!!!!!!
also the Wah Wah was used on "White Room" and it sounded better than
People in the audience could not stop talking about > GINGER BAKER
his playing was so remarkable, and many fans saw a musician play drums
like they were meant to be played. He took the house down with Toad, and
got lots of new-found respect.
The encore was "Sunshine", and honestly, the ending jam, was so
good, that it blew everyone's mind, and Clapton played like he was
inspired as in the early days of CREAM.
Graeme, I am attending the Wed. Oct. 26th show also, if you want, I
will forward more info to you, if you like.
New York City is in CREAM fever this week, and I LOVE It!!!
These Are The Days,
I just got back from NYC friday afternoon and I'm glad I went,
even though between airfare, hotel, tickets, souvenirs and a new digital camera
to take photos, it cost me over $2,000 US. but it was worth it to me. Cream is
the greatest rock trio ever. I wish you could've gone, I'm sure you
would've loved the shows. but I'm glad you have the DVD.
I went to the Tuesday and Wednesday shows. They did make obvious mistakes during both shows, but they carried on regardless(on Wednesday, jack came in too early with the first verse on "rollin' and tumblin'" and ended up singing it twice; in "Deserted Cities", while Jack was still singing a verse, Ginger came in too early with the tom part he plays on the instrumental break, Eric had to cue him on when to come in). They are still master musicians, capable of incredible playing. I think Clapton's solo on Tuesday's version of "Stormy Monday" was as good as the one on the DVD.
