In this video you can see and listen to the legendary blues rock band Cream performing a classic tune called Sunshine of Your Love. The Cream was a non typical rock group since it counted with only three musicians instead of the usual four or five. These musicians were Eric Clapton on the lead guitar and vocals, Ginger Baker on the drums and Jack Bruce on the electric bass guitar and vocals.
The same song was interpreted by the Jimi Hendrix Experience, check both versions and decide which one is your favourite.
Some comment on this video on the youtube site says: “Ginger Baker turned the rock world on its head with this amazing display of musicianship. While every other drummer at the time was busy emphasizing the off-beat, Baker drove relentlessly at the first beat and gave a sense of urgency to what, in other hands, would have been quite an average song. Brilliant!” That is an excellent comment which we fully subscribe.
