Cream Kicks Off First Tour 47 Years Ago
The first rock and roll power trio Cream (Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker) started their first tour today back in 1966, with a concert in Manchester, England. The band had their first public performance at the Windsor Festival prior to hitting the road. Cream fans got into the great combination of high-volume blues jamming, extended solos and flashy instrumental showmanship.
Here’s a more subdued Cream appearing on British TV from the same time period.
