Released last month with a special launch gig at Camden's Roundhouse, marking a year to the day that the late Cream bass virtuoso Jack Bruce passed away, "Sunshine of Your Love - A Life in Music" is a double album, featuring songs from his Cream days as well as other collaborations and his solo work.
As part of Cream, along with drummer Ginger Baker and guitarist, Eric Clapton, the trio went on to sell an astonishing 33 million albums in just two short years, releasing an impressive five albums in that time. Jack went on to work with both Ginger and Eric later on in his career as well as veritable a who's-who of great musicians, including John McLaughlin, Frank Zappa, John Mayall, Mick Taylor, Billy Cobham, Rory Gallagher, Ringo Starr, Bernie Worrell and many more.
The album costs £6.99 and features the Cream hits, "N.S.U", "I Feel Free", "White Room" and (of course), "Sunshine of Your Love", plus "Rope Ladder to the Moon", "Theme for an Imaginary Western", "Weird of Hermiston" (taken from his debut solo album, "Songs for a Tailor"), "Something to Live For", to the more recent "She's Moving On", "Candlelight" and many more.
We were lucky enough to be able to give away three copies of this great album and the lucky people who will be receiving a copy in the post shortly are: Chris Toms from Shrewsbury, Alison Walker from Surrey and Richard Barclay from Gloucestershire.
