Offered for sale is a sealed copy of the original first pressing of Cream’s 1966 debut, Fresh Cream.
Cream is highly and rightly regarded as rock’s first supergroup, combining Eric Clapton of the Yardbirds with Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce from Graham Bond’s band. While the band only released four albums before breaking up, they’re regarded as one of the most influential bands in rock history.
Fresh Cream, their 1966 debut, included the tracks “I Feel Free,” “Toad,” and “I’m So Glad.” The album was originally released in both stereo and mono, and later pressings replaced “I Feel Free” with “Spoonful.”
The copy offered for sale is a sealed stereo pressing; the record is presumably new and unplayed. The track listing includes “I Feel Free,” rather than “Spoonful.” Since the record is still sealed, we cannot confirm whether the label is the early purple and brown label or the later yellow one. However, the pressing feels quite thick and weighs about the same as the pressing in our personal collection on the purple and brown label, so there’s a good chance that this is a first pressing. It goes without saying, but we cannot guarantee which label is on this record.
The record is new and sealed, though there is a saw mark on the spine of the cover. Aside from a small tear near the saw mark on the spine, the wrap is complete and fully intact.
A beautiful copy of a classic album that will be very difficult to improve upon.
