Coming to me in the morning, leaving me at night.
Coming to me in the morning, leaving me alone.
You've got that rainbow feel,
But the rainbow has a beard.

Running to me a-cryin', when he throws you out.
Running to me a-cryin', on your own again.
You've got that pure feel,
Such good responses,
But the picture has a mustache.

You're comin' to me with that soulful look on your face.
Coming lookin' like you've never ever done one wrong thing.

You're comin' to me with that soulful look on your face.
You're comin' lookin' like you've never ever done one wrong thing.

So many fantastic colours, I feel in a wonderland.
Many fantastic colours, makes me feel so good.
You've got that pure feel,
Such good responses,
Got that rainbow feel,
But the rainbow has a beard.

Here's my story about seeing them live: https://ca-dreaming.com/Tunage/Cream/     (And I'm stickin' to it.)

 
 

I am double jealous.  I think the Fillmore/Wintergarden recordings make the best Live album I've ever wrapped my ears round.  I finally got to see them at The Albert Hall in May 2005.  An astonishing night. 
wow, the 60's in under three minutes. awesome! 
Black Keys followed by Cream. That can't be a coincidence, can it, Bill? If Clapton misses one of his guitars he should ask Dan Auerbach for it.

Thanks RP for the tribute to Ginger. 
 
Agreed....sadly enough, as I hear of the passing of the rockers, part of me looks forward to BillG's handling of the tribute.  RIP Ginger and Long Live RP!!

PS - and I'm hoping to hear the "Ginger Baker made a taco" song today too!!
Thanks RP for the tribute to Ginger. 
Hey Bill...We got technical difficulties.  Sounds like another song is bleeding through the current song.  This has been happening for a couple tracks.
Is is just my stereo system that plays 2 songs at once?

Seeing how I was a bit of Cream fan back in the day, it is an automatic 7 for everything by Cream that gets played on radio paradise.  Clingy nostalgia I guess. 
 
Nope - you'd like it.  I'm a bit too young to to have caught Cream in their heyday.  Started listening in the nineties.  Love it!  Good music is good music, some dates better than others, but it's still really excellent.
I have always loved this, one of my all-time favourite good-time songs 
Man!

For me, the sonic definition of"cool.".   

Ahhhhhh

Where is that tab?

Gone are the days.....
Has this finally been remixed for digital? It sounds GREAT.

Neither can Baker. Neither can Bruce. It's the trifecta. 
Great musicians at their peak.

Eric Clapton had been thinking of buying a racing bicycle and was discussing it with Ginger Baker, when a roadie named Mick Turner commented, "it's got them Disraeli Gears",meaning to say "derailleur gears", but instead alluding to 19th Century British Prime Minister, BenjaminDisraeli.

or so says Wiki

i just found out what the title means
.

The song's title is an initialism for "She Walks Like a Bearded Rainbow", although Jack Bruce once acknowledged that the W stood for "Was" rather than "Walks". This alternative title was also referenced by Pete Brown in a 2006 interview.

GOD!!  WTF was that?
I've never seen that photo before, and I hope to never see it AGAIN! 

 
The next time you go "CREAMING", please post something which won't make Jack Bruce scream in the afterlife as we come up on the  one year anniv. of his passing.
I saw the Cream play in the old North Main St. Arena in Providence, RI back in like 67 or 68. One of the first shows I saw as a young 17 yr old. They were crazy good playing through the layers of smoke that veiled the area.
Still have the British LP.  The ink for the LP cover is day-glo.  

We was robbed of so much over here across the pond ...

My God. One of those awful moments in rock n' roll art. Like Creedence Clearwater Revival's album cover for "Cosmo's Factory" or the Beatle's butchered-babies cover for "Yesterday and Today."

Great song from a band that didn't put out enough stuff. 


Cream, I don't think there is a jam of theirs that I don't like

I'm left wondering if that's a nod to this famous lyric by a certain four-headed monster:

Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
A four of fish and finger pies

Interesting.  An insta sorry when I uploaded it to the LRC, now in the list.

Regardless, loved it then and now.

The title ?

Great when it was new - great now!
I'm torn... Great band, catchy lyrics (if weird as heck), excellent riffs, and yet something is very off about the song.

But the power of this band......10!! {#Daisy}
Meh.....
May have been groundbraeking at the time... not sure it stands up today.
Nice to hear some more Cream here on RP!
