LIMITED EDITION OF 1,000. Publication date September 2019.
Foreword by Tony Palmer.
This lavish new coffee table style book will delight all Cream fans. Drawing on archive photos from the sixties as well as the 2005 reunion this book is further enhanced with rare memorabilia along with words by Nettie Baker, Ginger’s eldest daughter and co-author of his autobiography Hellraiser.
This photographic chronology also captures rarely seen images of Jack, Ginger & Eric before the formation of Cream, where they developed their craft alongside the Graham Bond Organisation, The Yardbirds and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers before moving on to Cream with loads of on and off stage shots from their formation in 1966 through to the farewell concert in November 1968.
Astonishingly in such a short time, Cream became superstars, particularly in the States where they toured relentlessly but also managed to produce four albums, along with countless hit singles.
Full Cream also captures a snapshot of life after Cream, not forgetting the brief 1993 reunion for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame induction, and of course the full reunion in 2005 with shows in London at the Royal Albert Hall in May, and in October at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
Sadly with the loss of Jack Bruce in 2014 any chance that the trio would ever get together again was extinguished. But Full Cream will at least be one great momento that fans can keep forever as a reminder of Britain’s first and arguably best supergroup.
Hardback: 297 x 210 mm, 128pp, in a custom-made, block foil presentation case with a set of 4 prints. One of the band and one each of Baker, Clapton and Bruce.
