Background: Fresh Cream, released in 1966, was the first album by the so-called “supergroup.” The album reached #6 in the UK, where the band members were better-known, and #39 in the U.S., though the album was later certified gold by the RIAA.
Fresh Cream represents so many different firsts, it’s difficult to keep count. Cream, of course, was the first supergroup, but their first album not only gave birth to the power trio, it also was instrumental in the birth of heavy metal and the birth of jam rock. That’s a lot of weight for one record and, like a lot of pioneering records, Fresh Cream doesn’t seem quite as mighty as what would come later, both from the group and its acolytes.
