Cream (2) ‎– Disraeli Gears

Genre:
Style:
Year:
Notes:
The second album by Cream, from which two singles were released; Strange Brew [May 1967] and Sunshine Of Your Love [Jan 1968]. The album gained the band strong attention in the USA, where it reached #4 in the US Charts in 1968.

It was inducted into the "Grammy Hall Of Fame" in 1999 and ranked 112 in "Rolling Stone" magazine's '500 Greatest Albums Of All Time' [in 2003].

Recorded in the USA at Atlantic Studios, there is much division between hardcore followers as to the mono works being 'truer' to 'the sound of the times' and the quality of pressings between those of early ATCO (multi color label) and UK Reaction issues. The writing on a bar napkin of "Tales Of Brave Ulysses" for Clapton brought designer Martin Sharp into the creation of the sleeve.

Had three people ever picked up instruments in a studio and made such a strong record? This is easily THE heavy rock album of the sixties. One of my favourite albums of all time, the balance between all three musicians is perfect and almost every song could send me into a trance. As the record cover (surely one of the best of all time) suggests, the album's more psychedelic than their début. If psychedelic music is intended to imitate the effects of drugs then I suggest that the opening (and lyrics) of "Tales of Brave Ulysses" do this as well as any song ever! It's the most cohesive album that they made and out of all of their albums, stands the test of time the best.

By far the best copy I've heard,
The dynamic is amazing, far superior to other copies I've heard, I mean the USA first pressing (ATCO), Rhino reissue, etc
Cover is not laminated,,
Before that I bought a UK vinyl from Reaction label with laminated cover that was not so good. The back cover had a white border, this does not have

Can someone please confirm if the pictures in this version are correct for this release? And if any owner could also provide matrix/runout information that would be great also.

Thanks

I have a version, which I am having trouble identifying. It has a laminated front cover, the A2/B3 matrix, no inner sleeve, just the original poly lined generic job, the back cover has white reaction in the lower left, white box stereo in the upper right, side 2 track list on the rear of the cover is in white. I bought this as a first press but am struggling to work out if it is or isn't. Any help? I may end up adding this to Discogs as it definately is not mentioned on this site anywhere.

Although the RSO CD shares a catalogue number with the first Polydor US CD pressing, they use different masterings. The RSO used a copy tape from the UK library, the Polydor used the American mastertape. The latter is the clearer of the pair, but I find the RSO has a warmer sound with a fuller bass.
