26/02/2021: “White Room” by Cream

Ginger Baker really did change the game for rock drummers. It’s impressive that his musicality and rhythmic nuance stands out on a track which features Eric Clapton’s blazing guitar playing at the close!

It’s late 60s psychedelic rock grooving by masters. Ambitious yet engaging, the track buoys you along on a wave of free, joyous energy.

It was actually the band’s bassist, Jack Bruce, who wrote the song. The lyrics were penned by Pete Brown, a poet.

“White Room” appeared on the 1968 album Wheels Of Fire.
