Video for the weekend 16

Cream, 'Crossroads', 1968.

One of the bands I liked most when I was a young boy was Cream, the very first so-called supergroup formed in 1966. I 'm getting old. Cream was consisted of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce & Ginger Baker. Their most known number 1 hit was 'White room'. This video shows the band playing 'Crossroads'. Enjoy the music, the surprising way the musicians handle their instrument, carefully passionated - call it a speedy finger fireworks - sofisticated and easy at the same time. And enjoy the amazing black & white film with that -in my opninion- extraordinary photography. 1968 was magic in different ways. So, let 's go back to 1968.

Las Vegas, USA 2008.
