Cream Reunion

Historic Royal Albert Hall Concerts Arrive on DVD and CD October 4, 2005

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 22, 2005 -- On the heels of four hugely successful nights at London's Royal Albert Hall, the eagerly anticipated Cream reunion arrives on DVD (from Rhino) and CD (from Reprise Records) October 4th, 2005. In what was billed the must-see show of this decade, legendary rock group, Cream -- Ginger Baker, Jack Bruce and Eric Clapton -- reunited for the first time in 20 years. These triumphant reunion performances were brilliantly captured on HD and 5.1 surround sound for the DVD and CD releases. The DVD will feature alternate takes of favorite songs, along with the only band interviews about the historic reunion.

Cream formed in 1966 and disbanded in 1968. In just under three years, the band produced three seminal studio albums, "Fresh Cream" (1966), "Disraeli Gears" (1967) and "Wheels of Fire" (1968) and secured worldwide acclaim and commercial success with their unique take on electrified blues. The band were a prolific and thrilling live act and toured incessantly in their short, but remarkable, history. The last time the band played together was in 1993 when they were inaugurated into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Los Angeles.
