Eagle Vision's next installment in their "classic album" series takes a look at the Disraeli Gears album from the original power-trio, Cream. With a track-by-track analysis that uses new interviews with Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, lyricist Pete Brown, and artist/lyricist Martin Sharp, not to mention comments from Manfred Mann and John Mayall, the documentary also includes vintage live footage of the band, as well as clips from their 2005 reunion tour. Classic songs like "Sunshine of Your Love", "Tales of Brave Ulysses", and "SWLABR" are talked about in depth, and you even get the three players individually showing how they created some of the classic riffs and ideas that went into the songs that made up the album.
So settle back, pop in the DVD, and learn about how the legendary Disraeli Gears came together for this short-lived supergroup, with the help of Felix Pappalardi and Tom Dowd. It was a special time in 1967 for all the individuals involved, and this DVD can help you relive the music all over again. Guitar historians will revel at the vintage concert footage showing Clapton playing his old rainbow colored Gibson SG, pumping out lethal wah-wah and fuzz drenched blues licks like the young lion he was back in the day. For many, this was the birth of what would later be called "heavy metal".
