Song of the day: Cream- White Room

cream_whiteroom

In 1968, psychedelica was reaching its heights. Cream released a song which can’t be missed when discussing this genre, White Room. It was written by Pete Brown (a poet) and Jack Bruce (the bassist). The recording took place in London in 1967, though they did not know how to name the song: it would be on their album Wheels of Fire, that was sure. Jack Bruce sang and played the bass, Eric Clapton would play the overdubbed guitars, Ginger Baker played the drums and their producer would contribute by playing violas. Together it made a hit, reaching 6 in the US and 26 in the UK. Enjoy
