After just over two years as a band, Cream gave their final performance on Nov. 26, 1968. The concert was held at the Royal Albert Hall In England. Cream's decision to disband took fans by surprise, though simmering tensions within the band, primarily between Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker, came to a head, as Eric Clapton was losing interest in the band. They embarked on a 'farewell tour' of 19 cities in the U.S. before the two-night stand finale, Nov. 25 & 26, at the Royal Albert Hall.
'Disraeli Gears' was the second album Cream released in their ever so short career, and 46 years later, it still shines as their crowning achievement. Issued in November of 1967, the landmark LP saw Cream flipping the switch toward full-on psychedelia while remaining true to the blues roots of their 1966 debut.
