Six O’Clock Triple Shot – 7/16/14 Churning Up Some Cream
(The Six O’Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)
We take a trip on the Rock ‘N’ Roll Time Machine tonight, dialing back 48 years. A blooming young guitar genius named Eric Clapton left the changing sounds of The Yardbirds to create a project of his own accord. July 16, 1966, Clapton recruited a couple of lads named Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker from The Graham Bond Organisation to form a new supergroup called Cream. Clapton has been documented as citing this two year span as the least enjoyable of his music ventures. A lot of fans find that hard to believe, as many consider it the era of Clapton’s best work. In recent years, the trio reunited in 2005 for concerts in United Kingdom at Royal Albert Hall, and New York City at Madison Square Garden. Earlier this year, Jack Bruce released a solo LP entitled Silver Rails.
Tonight, we hear three from Cream for your Six O’Clock Triple Shot: “I Feel Free”, “Tales of Brave Ulysses”, and “Strange Brew”, only on 94.9 WMMQ!!
