Wheels of Fire is a 1968 double album by the British rock band Cream, consisting
of a studio and a live record. It reached #3 in the United Kingdom and #1 in the
United States, becoming the first platinum-selling double album. It was ranked
number 205 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all
This British rock supergroup was formed in 1966 and their sound was
characterized by a hybrid of blues rock, hard rock, and bourgeoning psychedelic
rock as performed by Eric Clapton's innovative blues guitar, Jack Bruce's
operatic voice and fluid bass playing, and Ginger Baker's jazz-influenced
drumming. Cream soon evolved further, creating a trademark approach built around
each musician's virtuoso playing. The band's imaginative lyrics were often
written by poet Pete Brown.
"...Wheels of Fire finds the trio in full fight, capturing every side of
their multi-faceted personality...in many ways Wheels of Fire is indeed filled
with Cream's very best work, since it also captures the fury and invention (and
indulgence) of the band at its peak on the stage and in the studio."
