This was the first Best Of and it charted quite well. It was also my first Cream purchase as I was still at high school and it contained all my favourite songs (Sunshine, Tales, White Room, Crossroads, Badge, Spoonful). Even when I got the full albums I still used to expect SWALBR after White Room and I Feel Free after Strange Brew!
