SRP $29.98 1.78:1(16:9) DTS 5.1/PCM  

Comprised of the best versions of songs from performances over four nights, "CREAM: ROYAL ALBERT HALL" offers a unique concert presentation of one of the most influential bands of the past 40 years. 

Ginger Baker has been hailed as the greatest drummer of all time, not an easy feat when acknowledging Keith Moon and Stewart Copeland, but it's not without merit.   Now, add Bassist Jack Bruce and Guitarist Eric Clapton and you've got one incredible band!  While some fans may feel disappointed that "Tales of Brave Ulysses", "Strange Brew" and some other greats aren't here, the 19 songs that are included are all terrific! 

The selections begins with "I'm So Glad" and the music continues to build up to a great climax, with one knockout performance after another. 

The correct 1.78:1 aspect ratio is intact with 16:9 enhancement. Colors are solid, and surprisingly a bit soft, whereas many concerts tend to be grainy. The detail is fine and artifacts are minimal.

The original PCM mix and a DTS mix are included here.  While bass is impressive on both, it's actually more impressive on the PCM version. However, the DTS version offers better overall clarity and balance.
