I have just finished watching this DVD and was pleasantly surprised.
All the interviews seemed to be done specifically for this project, no clips
from other docos slotted in.
Eric, Jack, Ginger, Pete Browne, Martin Sharp, John Mayall, Manfred Mann and
Ahmet Ertegun among others.
Eric and Jack contribute new versions of three of the songs.
Eric does acoustic versions of Sunshine Of Your Love and Outside Woman
Jack does We're Going Wrong on piano for the first time (and what a
sensational version).
Certainly worth the money.

It's a shame that Ahmet, after all these years, still thinks of Cream as
"Eric Clapton and backing band".
If lead singer and songwriter had anything to do with it, it would have to
be "Jack Bruce and backing band"

Song writing: Jack 55%, Eric 18%

Lead vocals: Jack 72%, Eric 27%



do the math before you mention Ginger's 1%
