Day 99

Cream- Live Cream Volume II

This album's sleeve is beat to hell, but the record plays clean. When I first got it, I figured I'd have to throw it away. It was also in a Half Price grab bag.

It's a good record to have for being the only Cream album I've ever owned in any format. When I was younger, I hated the song "White Room". I don't know why, but it took me some years to appreciate it's awesomeness. And it's especially awesome live.

So that brings up a question. Are you a fan of live albums? Yes or no? Seems like most people I know either hate them or love them. I personally think they are great. For me, I love it when bands change up songs from how they sound on a studio album. Plus, live they just let loose. Take this album for instance. Clapton is killing it. So is Ginger and Bruce for that matter. I really should go out and get Volume I to complete the set. Really, I just need to get the whole Cream catalog. Kinda surprising though that "Strange Brew" or "Badge" isn't on either live album.

I'm gonna go listen to side 2 and start doing some sit-ups. My spare tire is inflating! Big day tomorrow with reaching Day 100. Any guesses on who it is? I'll also announce who wins a 7" for being a follower tomorrow as well. See you then!
