Did you miss Cream’s historic, four-night reunion at London’s famed Royal Albert Hall in 2005? It was the first time the group — singer/guitarist Eric Clapton, singer/bassist Jack Bruce and drummer Ginger Baker — played an entire show together onstage in nearly 40 years. Well, pretty soon you can experience those sold-out gigs from the comfort of your own home because on Oct. 11, a Blu-Ray disc capturing the best of those performances will hit stores.

Appropriately titled ‘Cream: Royal Albert Hall London 2005,’ the disc captures 19 scorching tracks culled from the quartet of shows recorded in Dolby Digital 5.1/DTS-HD Master Audio. Three bonus cuts — alternate versions of Cream classics ‘Sleepy Time Time,’ ‘We’re Going Wrong’ and ‘Sunshine Of Your Love’ — and interviews with each member of the band round out the collection, which has a running time of two hours and 47 minutes.

Cream, widely considered to be one of the first rock supergroups of note, were especially known for their high-decibel live performances. The band’s 1968 release, ‘Wheels of Fire,’ was the world’s first-ever platinum selling double album. They split in November of that year after just two years together, with the band’s then-final concerts also being held at Royal Albert Hall. They reunited onstage in 2003 when inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and followed the sold-out Royal Albert gigs of 2005 with three more at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
