Disraeli Gears is the second album by British blues-rock group Cream. It was released in November 1967 and went on to reach on the UK album chart. It was also their American breakthrough, becoming a massive seller there in 1968, reaching on the American charts. The album features the two singles "Strange Brew" and "Sunshine of Your Love". By this time, the group was veering quite heavily away from their blues roots to indulge in more psychedelic sounds. The title of the album was taken from an inside joke. Disraeli Gears is the second album by British blues-rock group Cream.

Cream’s second album, ‘Disraeli Gears’, remains a psych-blues masterpiece that ensured Clapton and co’s place in the history books. Published on. November 2, 2018. Produced by Felix Pappalardi who would later form the Cream-alike band, Mountain with guitarist Leslie West, Disraeli Gears was engineered by Tom Dowd. Released on 2 November 1967 the album made the UK charts on 18 November and eventually climbed to N. It went one place higher on the Billboard Best Seller list after its release in early December and became a massive seller, breaking the band in America. Those are the fact. ut what about the record’s unusual name? In the 1960s the ‘must-own’ racing bike was equipped with derailleur gears.

Cream’s second album is the one that people tend to obtain first, and most people would agree it’s quintessential. It shows the band moving far past traditional twelve bar blues into psychedelic rock territory, but it also shows a kind of poetic nature that made the group stand out as the wise elders of the mid-1960’s rock bands. Lyric samples such as, “Is there a reason for today?”, “The rainbow has a beard”, and “Tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers” are exemplary of this, and abstract phrasing has rarely worked so well within the confines on rock music. Part of this may have been due to many outside writer’s credits on the record, including Gail Collins, Pete Brown, Martin Sharp, and Felix Pappalardi; truly the band was a “supergroup” in many ways on this record. The album is perfectly sequenced, leading with two great lead singles on each side of the record and then following them up with more dreamy, experimental tracks. On the accessible side, opener “Strange Brew” is perhaps the defining twelve bar blues rock song of the era, as Eric Clapton’s arpeggiated chord changes are strangely addictive and he sings falsetto through the entire tune. “Swlabr” combines the start/stop nature of the groups more progressive leanings with a driving rock riff that is never straightforward but very catchy. “Tales of Brave Ulysses” is the most mysterious track that seems to transport the listener back in time while telling them a demented story that may seem profound but makes little sense, while “Sunshine of Your Love” is the best example of Clapton using Bruce’s descending bass lines as fodder for his distorted electric guitar showoffs (and when you can play as good as Eric Clapton, why not show it off?). In the deeper cuts, “Dance the Night Away” has another one of those Cream choruses that defies the rules of vocal harmonies, not to mention chord changes that sound like they shouldn’t work but somehow do. “Blue Condition” lets Ginger Baker get a song credit with a kind of turgid blues ballad that stomps along like a drunkard stumbling down the sidewalk. “World of Pain” and “We’re Going Wrong” nearly lose all traces of rhythm with their ethereal melodies that transport the listener to the clouds. “Take It Back” is a catchy, albeit traditional blues rock tune that shows how the band easily pump out blues number after blues number if they felt like it; the same is true for their cover of Blind Joe Reynolds’ “Outside Woman Blues”. These great supporting album tracks bring a sort of lazy and relaxed vibe to the record that stands in contrast with the upbeat rocking singles. In a way, Disraeli Gears is not Cream in its most representative form, as it cuts out most of the excess qualities they show on other albums. It works better as a distillation of the band’s sound, as none of these songs run past five minutes but almost any of them could jam on for double their length.…

The best place to start with Cream, as it includes most of the band's first-rate, Hendrix-inspired psychedelic hits ("Strange Brew"; "Sunshine Of Your Love"; "Tales Of Brave Ulysses"; "SWLABR"). Some of the other tracks are odd to annoying (Baker's "Blue Condition"), and there's also some blues-based filler ("Outside Woman Blues"; "Take It Back"). But that doesn't detract from the band's accomplishment here - they were the first to succeed at all in catching up with Hendrix, not only by expanding their volume and lyrical subject matter, but by pushing their musical virtuosity to the limit. It's particularly impressive because of the primitive recording techiques; apart from some guitar overdubs, harmonies, and heavy guitar distortion, the sound is mostly live in the studio. Produced by Felix Pappalardi, who stayed with the band until it broke up and was responsible for much of its sound.

Cream were the definitive power trio; guitar, bass, and drums designed for maximum impact, and Disraeli Gears made that impact greater than any other release form this short-lived band. The album is the results of a variety of influences converging upon the band simultaneously: the Jimi Hendrix on England's shores, the recent release of Albert King's signature album, Born Under a Bad Sign, the Beatles' legitimizing psychedelic rock with their recent albums, and the hiring of producer Felix Pappalardi. The result is an onslaught of fuzzy, roaring blues that comes dangerously close to heavy metal without abandoning psychotropic strangeness of the late 1960s. "Sunshine of Your Love" is of course the most legendary song here, but there is plenty of other progressive rock to enjoy as well. This album makes it easy to see why musicians around the world considered Cream to be the most musically adept band on the planet in 1967.

Disraeli Gears is an excellent album, filled with unforgettable melodies with a fascinating aura that permeates the entire experience. While it could be viewed as a relic from a past era, the truth is that it's a timeless work that transcends chronology, an album that's just as striking today as it was when it was first released nearly forty years ago.

I've already encountered Cream in my write-up on The Yardbirds, right about when Clapton left that band to form this first "super-group", or, as they were referred to back then, a "rock power trio" of Jack Bruce on the vocals and bass, Ginger Baker on the drums, and, of course, Eric Clapton behind his guitar. "Fresh Cream" may have been the band's debut release, but it is with the "Disraeli Gears" that the group produced their defining record, blending British rock with the American blues and a touch of the now global-sweeping psychedelia. Check out the album cover by the Australian artist, Martin Sharp, featuring a cut-up photo collage in a floral arrangement, while listening to the group's well-known anthem, "Sunshine Of Your Love", and be transported to the era of hardened blues awakening into a generation of heavy rock.

Cream's finest album. The Summer of Love saw many other monumental albums like Sgt. Pepper, Odessey and Oracle, Axis: Bold as Love, Velvet Underground and Nico etc., and this one is right up there.
