  • Description

    Heavenly Cream 'An Acoustic Tribute To Cream' features Ginger Baker, Cream lyricist the late Pete Brown, Free front man Paul Rodgers, Bernie Marsden, Joe Bonamassa, Bobby Rush, Malcolm Bruce (son of Jack Bruce), Debra Bonham, Maggie Bell and others. For a band that only existed for two and a half years, the influence and fame of Cream seems to have only grown and grown over the decades.

    One of the highlights of this project was the participation of Cream's original drummer Ginger Baker. It turned out, sadly, that these were the last recording sessions he ever did.

    Another big plus was getting the great Bobby Rush. The 85 year old blues/funk master verve and energy is spectacular.

    Joe Bonamassa didn't quite realize that we were all-acoustic, but plugged in for his slide work on "Sunshine" to great effect.

    The powerful vocals of Deborah Bonham gracefully shook the walls of Abbey Road studios when she came in to lay down a couple of tracks. Her husband Peter Bullick also added to the mix, displaying his guitar finesse with great ease

    Maggie Bell's performances were a welcome reminder that she is still one of the greatest British blues/soul artists of our time. And multi-instrumentalist and singer Malcolm Bruce, who played on every track, did some magical work that his late father Jack would surely have been very proud of.

    If that wasn't enough, the phenomenal voice of Paul Rodgers puts the sweetest icing on this fine collection of tracks with his unmistakable presence.

    Quarto Valley Records releases Heavenly Cream: An Acoustic Tribute to Cream Limited Edition on Double 180 Gram Cream Vinyl.

    The project honors Cream's legacy with a 15-track tribute album and features Pete Brown and Ginger Baker plus an impressive roster of renowned musicians who knew, or were inspired by the iconic supergroup including Joe Bonamassa, Deborah Bonham, Malcolm Bruce, Peter Bullick, Nathan James, Bernie Marsden, Maggie Bell, Rob Cass, Clem Clempson, Paul Rodgers, and Bobby Rush. There were also invaluable musical contributions from Cheryl Alleyne, Winston Blissett, Moreno Buttinar, Abass Dodoo, John Donaldson, Pee Wee Ellis, Mo Foster, Neil Murray, Mo Nazam, Tony Remy and Frank Tontoh.

    Recorded at Sensible Studio and the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London. Years in the making, Quarto Valley executive Mike Carden initially approached Pete Brown, his long-time colleague and friend in 2017 about a different project and out of that meeting came the concept. Pete had remained friends wiht Ginger Baker over the years and brought him on board. Following suit came Malcolm Bruce (Jack's son) and the gathering of the incredible talent on the album began to fall in place.

    On recording this album, Malcolm Bruce said, "I feel very much that in my own small way I'm carrying on a tradition that's incredibly unique in the musical canon as it were."
