Disraeli Gears Half Speed Master
Abbey Road Half Speed Remasters. A slew of classic albums are reissued on 180 Gram vinyl, with replica first-pressing packaging and stunning half-speed remastering, undertaken at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London. Further care has been taken to create packaging that adheres to the same high standards, from giving each album its own individual obi strip, down to creating detailed artwork reproduction. It was 'Disraeli Gears' that turned Cream into a "supergroup." Here they pursue the psychedelic ideals of the era with total abandon (the LP cover art still stands as one of the 1960s' most striking designs), merging these ideals with their take on the blues and adorning the amalgamation with some superb pop craftsmanship. Of the eleven originals here, four - 'Tales of Brave Ulysses', 'Swlabr, 'Strange Brew', and 'Sunshine of Your Love' - earned major airplay. This, their excess-free greatest moment, does the Cream legend proud.
