CREAM: una nuova versione sontuosa dell'esordio targato 1966

Quando si parla delle band fondamentali uscite negli anni '60 nella lista delle citazioni non mancano mai, giustamente, i Cream, super trio composto dai virtuosi Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce e Ginger Baker. La band diede vita ad un sound rock blues di spessore, potenza ed inventiva qualità che furono subito evidenti nell'esordio del 1966 "Fresh Cream", lavoro che ora torna nei negozi con una sontuosa versione deluxe caratterizzata da ben 3 cd, un blu ray audio e un corposo booklet di 64 pagine con nuove note curate dallo storico giornalista di Rolling Stone David Fricke. Ci sarà anche una versione su vinile composta da ben 6 dischi 180 grammi e tutto questo materiale conterrà, oltra alla tarcklist originali, anche materiale raro, inedito, registrazioni per la Bbc e varie altre curiosità.
La versione cd uscirà il 27 gennaio, quella in vinile ad aprile.
