This is an explosive show by Cream early in their career. It seems to be the entire performance which is also a plus. I tip my hat to the fellow who took the time to remaster a wealth of great Cream shows on tape. I haven't heard the original tape of this show but this one is definitely good. Unfortunately, it's not an excellent soundboard recording as is suggested. It sounds like a couple of generations back from the original as the crispness and clarity of most master board recordings is missing. Because of the slightly muddy sound quality this one loses a couple of points but overall is still a must-have for any Cream fan, fanatic or casual, simply because of the blistering performance and completeness of the recording.

NO, THIS IS NOT AN AUDIENCE RECORDING. THE QUALITY IS TOO GOOD FOR A 1967 AUDIENCE TAPE, AND YES, CLAPTON'S LICKS ARE EXCITING. Ignore the above review because this is one of Cream's best-ever concerts. It seems that so many people jump on the bandwagon when it comes to live Cream--"Oh, this is soooo self-indulgent,""Oh, these jams are too long and Clapton is too excessive, blah blah blah"--you know what? Many people like to say that because for decades, ignorant, hack rock critics have come up with the stereotype of Cream as a self-indulgent live band who made studio albums that were far better. You know why? People unfortunately think "Oh, this guy is a critic and he must be right." BOGUS. Critics don't pick up instruments and play in bands. Critics don't play on the level of Clapton. In fact, many critics are failed, bitter, jealous musicians. How else would anyone explain the hack Jon Landau's ignorant review of the 3/68 Brandeis show? Of course, this dig is nothing personal against chill782001, since he has a right to his opinion.

Cream is truly underrated when it comes to jamming. They didn't do pot or acid to get them jamming (although they did do other drugs, but not to intentionally effect the music), like the Dead or Quicksilver. They were musicians, EXCELLENT MUSICIANS, who listened to each other and created some of the best improvisational jamming in rock. The Grateful Dead, IMO, is nothing in comparison. Cream is one of the best bands ever, and Live at the Grande Ballroom proves it.

Tremendous live show. The difference between this and so many of their shows are the vocals. Jack Bruce is much more restrained, much more on key than most live recordings you hear of him in Cream. He avoids the gymnastics and plays it straight.

The jamming is just extraordinary. Do a couple of verses, explode for extended jams, then come back for the final verse, and end it. All three members are featured, with EC, Bruce, and Baker all getting their chance to shine. Their pretty much standard playset for the time, more standard Cream songs on disc 2.

Live Cream isn't for everyone. If you do like this stuff, superb musicianship with extended improvisations, then this is the best bootleg I've heard of Cream.

Sound is extremely good for a 1967 recording (A- or thereabouts) and this is highly regarded by many serious Cream fans. However, I find the performances a little tedious. Just my personal opinion you understand. I much prefer Clapton's live playing with Derek and the Dominoes, where, on a good night, his playing was jaw dropping, e.g. the "Got To Get Better In A Little While" from late 1970 which closes the "Blind Dominoes" boot and which contains the most astounding soloing by him that I personally have ever heard.
I think the problem with Cream live was that no-one was "on the one", with Clapton, Baker and Bruce all attempting to outdo each other in displaying their chops, which sometimes meant that it didn't hang together too well.
However, this is certainly a much better performance than the October 4, 1968 Oakland show available on "Oakland Day Final Remasters" and others and, as I said, the sound is great compared to the majority of Cream bootlegs. So, if you like the live part of "Wheels Of Fire", this is probably the show for you to get.
