There's something extra special about hearing the announcer on the BBC show saying "the Cream..."Don`t mean to be 'picky' but with respect to a great classic band, they were/are "Cream" not 'The Cream'.
Both songs are good--tough decision.
+1 Clapton calls it The Cream then thats what they are, Im not gonna argue with the guy that was in the band.I think it can be either Cream or The Cream. I have seen the band advertised tons of places as "the Cream". And i have heard Clapton call them The Cream, as well as many of Clapton's peers.
WGW. Jack's voice simply melts me, and that song is a very strong example of why.

Yeah I agree with that--things were much different then. 'The 'dark ages' and beginnings of progressive rock music--just a bi-weekly [or maybe monthly] 'Rolling Stone' Magazine was just about it here in the US--no 'Guitar Player' magazines to speak of, no nat`l media following them, no TV coverage, no Internet, only 'underground' publicity, very few fm radio stations [w/, I`m sure, some DJ`s mistakenly calling them 'The Cream'] etc. 'Cream' came and went before the majority of anyone knew who they were--only the fortunate and lucky ones did! Just look at some of the pictures of their performances--small audiences, although there were better turnouts for their final 'Farewell Tour' in late `68 as they were beginning to 'catch on' after 2 or 3 US tours.Edit: they were called "The Cream" fairly commonly in the early days, there's no shame in it. Jimi Hendrix called them that on a couple of occasions IIRC and he wasn't exactly out of the loop.
Yikes man.Yeah it greatly shows his ignorance, like everyone else who calls them 'The Cream'. They`re 'Cream' not 'The Cream'--pretty simple stuff.
etc! etc! etc!
To all who are ok w/ 'The Cream', Google 'The Cream' and then report back with your results!
