Phenomenal, albeit shortlived, psychedelic project by Eric Clapton. Their song SWLABR stands for "She Was Like A Bearded Rainbow". The song Crossroads is a combination of Tommy Johnson's Crossroad Blues and Traveling Riverside Blues. It was only performed live. The song Badge was named after one band member misread part of the musical sheets as "badge" instead of "bridge". For awhile radio announcers mislabeled them as The Cream, used to bands using articles in their names. Two platinum albums and two gold. Two gold compilations with Strange Brew: The Very Best of Cream going platinum. Several hit singles, with Sunshine of Your Love going gold.
