Cream: Goodbye      (2 of 3 found this review helpful)
  November 12, 2014

The SHM-SACD of "Goodbye Cream" is the absolute worst disc I've ever bought. Granted, I had to buy it to complete my Cream SHM-SACD collection but it wasn't worth it. Sounds like a dusty cassette and only 30 min. long. Even "Badge" sounds awful. The should've re-issued "Wheels of Fire" in the second ... more

This is an excellent SHM-SACD of one of the great albums of all time. No need to review the content as this is a legendary album and anyone who would buy, or consider buying, the SHM-SACD of this album is certainly familiar with it.
