Has anyone else noticed that when you enter the catalog number for Cream (2) - Goodbye RS 1 3013, Dead Can Dance - Into The Labyrinth shows in the list that appears. It may be just me, but they appear to have similar cover art and Dead Can Dance - Into The Labyrinth does have a catalog number with 3013.

Cream announced that they’d be disbanding prior to their third release Wheels Of Fire, meaning that many of us thought that Wheels Of Fire [charting in at number 1 in America] would be the their final release, and the last time we’d hear from Cream live ever again. And then the rumor mill began circulation, with whispers that yes there would be a final album, and again that it would be produced by Felix Pappalardi, and not only that, but that the album would be also be a double album, released in much the same manner as Wheels Of Fire, featuring one record of studio material and one of live dates. Yet as always with Cream, things didn’t pan out as hoped, expected, or desired ... yes Felix Pappalardi did produce the album, but at the time, there was little quality studio material left to get excited over. Though Goodbye Cream was distributed as a gatefold, in reality, it was only a single album that did reach number 2 in the United States. But that slotting may have been a bit circumspect at the end of the psychedelic decade, meaning that that album may have sold so well simply because it was their final album, and no one wanted to miss a thing.

I remember that the album quickly fell from favor, with many suggesting that Cream and the guitar god Eric Clapton should have gone out with stronger material, fresh material, and given their fans a truly farewell bash they would remember for all time. Everyone agreed that the sound was inferior, an aspect that would [sort of] be cleaned up on the compact disc, others cited the bluesy nature of the songs, with the flaw being that these blues songs where not actually blues material in their essence and nature.

Having said all of this, Goodybye is one of those albums that refused to die quietly, in later years it was found in the top 150 best albums of all time, and once deeply into the 70’s, the album reached its best selling years, with fans looking back with hunger for anything they might divine from these grooves, and later the CD would treat them to one additional track. While I can’t call the live material found here inspirational, that may have been a product of the time, with limitations on recording equipment, because I certainly thought the shows were intoxicating ... though certainly not when they were preformed on those revolving stages. While I can’t say that the studio material was inspirational either, as if was basically lifted from the cutting room floor. And then there’s the aspect that Goodbye Cream was released as a contractual obligation only, so the lads had no sense of obligation to do anything more than the most basic, which in reality is what they put out. Others have said that, “Goodbye Cream was one of the biggest wastes in the history of rock n’ roll,” yet even those people rate the album as being above average, while others give it a 10 out of 10, meaning that fans and critics from the day all heard this outing with very different ears and attitudes.

Even Rolling Stone did a second review for Goodbye Cream in 1973, and refused to give it a rating, saying: Goodbye is not a very worthwhile album. Critics will probably tear it apart, while even bonafide Cream freaks will have to be a little disappointed. It's like the once-famous tycoon who dies an anonymous pauper; it's just a bad way to go out. The studio version of "I'm So Glad" from Fresh Cream is far superior to the live one. What melody the song had is lost as Jack and Eric get involved in a shouting match. "Politician" wasn't an overly brilliant song in the first place, and the live recording doesn't improve upon the original version. "Sittin' on Top of the World" is the best of the live cuts; it is dominated by Jack with a convincing vocal and a creaky bass. Eric comes in with a flash of guitar at the end; it all fits together tightly. As for the studio cuts, they are plagued with the same fault which hindered Wheels Of Fire, Cream was best at playing blues; however, none of the stuff they wrote was blues.

So, with all that said and done, I’m also not going to rate the album, but I am going to say that I’m so glad it’s in my collection to this very day.

In a chart of Cream albums, I'd rank this third, with "Wheels OF Fire" second and "Disraeli Gears" on top. Like it's predecessor, "Goodbye" is divided in two with half the material being from live performances, and the other half from the studio. Also like it's predecessor, it has contributions from all three artists. While the live material doesn't quite reach the heights of "Crossroads" or "Spoonful", unlike "Wheels Of Fire" it doesn't have any weak points. From the studio material, Clapton's "Badge" has a timeless quality to it, making it one of their most, (if not typical) memorable tunes. Bruce's "Doing That Scrapyard Thing" whilst also enjoyable, is very of it's time, as is Ginger Baker's, unusual, "What A Bringdown".
