After a mere three albums in just under three years, Cream called it quits in Being proper gentlemen, they said their formal goodbyes with a tour and a farewell album called -- what else? As a slim, six-song single LP, it's far shorter than the rambling, out-of-control Wheels Love - Brewer And Shipley - Down In L.A. (Reel-To-Reel Fire, but it boasts the same structure, evenly dividing its time between tracks cut on-stage and in the studio. While the live side contains nothing as indelible as "Crossroads," the live music on the whole is better than that on Wheels of Fire, capturing the trio at an empathetic peak as a band.
It's hard, heavy rock, with Cream digging deep into their original "Politician" with the same intensity as they do on "Sitting on Top of the World," but it's the rampaging "I'm So Glad" that illustrates how far they've come; compare it to the original studio version on Fresh Cream and it's easy to see just how much further they're stretching their improvisation. The studio side also finds them at something of a peak. Boasting a song Love from each member, it opens with the majestic classic "Badge," co-written by Eric Clapton and George Harrison and ranking among both of their best work.
It's followed by Jack Bruce's "Doing That Scrapyard Thing," an overstuffed near-masterpiece filled with wonderful, imaginative eccentricities, and finally, there's Ginger Baker's tense, dramatic "What a Bringdown," easily the best original he contributed to the group.
Like all of Cream's albums outside Disraeli Gears, Goodbye is an album of moments, not a tight cohesive work, but those moments are all quite strong on their own terms, making this a good and appropriate final bow.

Lightman's voice itself was described as a cross between the Gibb brothers from the Bee Gees and Donovan Leitch. Owing no small allegiance to the '60s psychedelic era, Lightman's music was very orchestrated, similar to certain songs of the Beatles or the Moody Blues in a melodic baroque pop vein. Lightman's record does not seem to have attracted much attention when it was first issued, but upon its reissue in by the Fallout label, Lightman enjoyed renewed interest.

Paul Revere and The Raiders has been a veritable army of musicians, whose major career began in and lasted through Paul managed the group's internal workings, Mark Lindsay lent his voice, writing and producer talents, and I managed the external affairs: Columbia Records, a television career, and touring. An ambassador of sorts. The '60s Raiders became television stars and Teen Idols. They were Rock Stars with "Personality, and immense record sales followed.
They dominated the teen magazines as well. By the mid '70s, Paul and Mark had seen a run of success that would be hard to duplicate by any other group, with millions of records sold, literally hundreds of Gammastrahlenlamm - Fourniersches Gangraen - Gammastrahlenlamm appearances, and tours to the biggest U.

When Stax went bankrupt in the mid-'70s, ownership of the masters eventually wound up in the hands of Fantasy Records Saul Zaentz, and no one's been able to get the tapes for domestic release. Home Stretch Blues represents a high point in the Sextet's history. We did both IPs in two 3-hour sessions. Kevin Daly, Harley Usill's producer for Argo, was encouraging and enthusiastic. We had our dear friend Don Rendell on some of the tracks, a truly inspirational presence.
I brought in my home-made harpsichord in my Reliant three wheeler, and we were all surprised that it actually worked the harpsichord that is: we weren't so sure about the three-wheeler. You hear it pinging away on Fire Opal and Blue Poppies. We'd recently had a trip in two cars to the northernmost tip of Scotland Thursofour in a big Vauxhall, Trevor Tomkins and I in a mini-van - the "scout car". It was he who invented the service ranks you see on the cover.

No one there so much as raised an eyebrow. We used to sing Tennyson's lullaby in its original setting "Sweet and Low" at junior school, together with "Golden Slumbers". No one writes such lovely things any more "Golden Slumbers" is temporarily misplaced.
Epiphany began - like Troppo - with a bass figure of Dave Green's. It turned into a late arrival for the Jazz Praises Ball, but nonetheless we had great fun with it, especially the whoops.
