Cream Are The Very End!

Keith Altham, New Musical Express, 28 October 1966

"THE First is last and the last is first but the first, the second and the last are the Cream," so reads the perplexing handout on a new group which comprises three musicians – Eric Clapton, guitar (ex-Yardbird, ex-John Mayall Blues Breaker), Jack Bruce (ex-John Mayall, ex-Manfred Mann) and Ginger Baker (ex-Graham Bond Organisation). They enter the NME Chart this week with their first disc 'Wrapping Paper' having only been formed three months.
