The Flimwell Papers’ Music Corner is picking “personal” songs this week. Tunes that form the cornerstone of my music and thus my life and soul.
Cream is pushing out the boundaries here…or so I’ve always maintained! And on this very “popish” tune Cream shows mastery of the hook- and harmony-laden pop format wlhich shows as much skill as they have on their free-flowing jams. Yes, Cream, with the album from whence this tune hales is pushing out all the stops and going for the long one here. The first so-called Supergroup, power rock trio, and throw in the first strong taste of metal! It’s an album that I like to play around here on my birthday because it’s one of the handful of works that set me on the trail that I’m still on — my musical soul ride!
