A special word of thanks, not only to the Cream for making "Christmas in May" possible,
but to all the die-hard Cream fans who have contributed
their time, thoughts, pictures & "goodies" to the forums at Cream2005.com.
THIS project's goal (where you are now) was to gather the fans' photos into one location (as opposed to spread out over hundreds of message boards)
and economize them (lessen their loading time) for web-friendly purposes. Did I expect to get over 1,000 hits
in the first week? Does Clapton play clarinet? Then I noticed in the Site Statistics that a large number of hits
were originating from
Jack Bruce's Official Website's News
Page! You gotta be kiddin' me! Jack Bruce referring people to ME for Cream Reunion pictures?
I must be the new Mountain!
Anyway, thanks to the folks below for their kind words.

Hello there, Pavaroddy!
Just wanted to thank you for the great stuff your website gives
access to, especially the video clips. I've been a Cream fan since
their first album and I've also been following Eric's, Jack's and
Ginger's post-Cream careers and achievements. Your website really
brings back a lot of nice memories and sort of takes me back almost
40 years - who could have imagined e.g. in 1967 that in about 38
years, people would again be very enthusiastic about the trio,
exchange comments about a recent concert via computers and would even
be able to find Cream-related stuff on a computer network!
Great site, thanx, and God bless!
Ruud van den Akker,
Jim, an absolutely fantastic website!!! On it everyday!!! Great work!!!
Wish I could say something different from what everybody else is saying about your website,
but it is just simply fantastic. I love it!!! You're definitely up there with the greats Graeme,
Eddy, and Derek!!! Keep up the great work!!!
Webmaster's Note: Herb, you DID say something different---18 Exclamation Points! A new record!
The YEAR OF THE CREAM deserves 18 Exclamation Points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I actually just wanted to send you this email to let you
know how much I enjoyed your "Many Faces of.."
website. It cracked me up!
Also wanted to let you know that I dig your website
about that little band know one's ever heard
of...Cream, is it? Yeah, awesome site. I'm one of
the few non-40 year olds frequenting it (I'm 20), so
usually when people my age ask me who my favorite band
is and I reply "Cream", they haven't a clue who I'm
speaking of. Kinda sad...
I especially love the page you've set aside for the
MSG show. I'm already starting to pick up extra hours
at my part-time job and setting aside some dough for
Anyway, keep up the great webpages and continue
crossing your fingers for a possible US reunion!
Enjoying your website very, very much. I’ve been a Cream fan since
I first walked home from school in 1968 in step to “Sunshine Of Your Love”
(15 at the time, 10th grade; I’m 51 now). My, how time passes!
I have all the albums (even 2 copies of the “eggplant” greatest hits LP and,
of course all the legit CD’s.
My son & I play in a band together 10 yrs, he’s now 23, a drummer,
I’m a bass player. Got into bass because of Jack Bruce – not McCartney,
not Entwistle – Jack Bruce! He’s a drummer, his heroes are Dave Grohl,
the guy from the band “Live”, and – Ginger Baker.
Great Site!..I couldn't go to any of the shows....couldn't get tickets..but
that's a whole new can o' worms to open...Hopefully I'll be here next
THIS SITE IS REALLY OUTSTANDING.
THE CASH CLIP REALLY STIRRED MY MEMORY.
I CLEARLY REMEMBER WATCHING THE BROADCAST.
MAYBE SOMEONE CAN DIG UP THE SMOTHER'S BROTHERS CLIP OF CREAM.
Thank you for putting up the Cream site
I just can't resist visiting daily!
A big hand for Manualist for posting the
Dominos video. Simply marvellous! I read about this performance years ago and heard an audio version of this material on a Dominos bootleg a few years back. To see the actual performance is a joy. Great sound quality: EC, Brownie and an old Fender Twin achieve a wonderfully effortless tone.

Thanks for putting those video clips on that site! I saw the Johnny Cash show clip maybe in the 80s on Vh1 or MTV or something, and always wanted to watch it again. I love the trading licks with Carl Perkins, and now having that later Carl Perkins special on DVD (where EC and Carl do Matchbox again) I had to seek that out to watch again, but didn't find it to buy or trade. I played it like 4 or 5 times in a row now. It was so thrilling to see the D&B stuff too.
Holy COW!! That was Derek and the Dominos!!!!
The Cream may not be too fresh, but sure does it taste good!

The Manualist, What a treat! Thank you a million times! Gosh, Brownie had quite the twang!

What a treat...thanks for posting that!
