CREAM
The Last Goodbye 1968 [Mid Valley, 3CD]

Live at the Oakland Coliseum, Oakland, CA; October 4, 1968. The Forum, Los Angeles, CA; October 19, 1968. Royal Albert Hall, London, UK; November 26, 1968. Very good soundboards.

Some of these tracks have previously been released on the Lost Farewell Masters (Watch Tower, click here). These new soundboards, released in February 2016, are said to have “perfect sound (from multi-track masters) offering ‘official quality sound’.” As collectorsmusicreviews said, “This may be one of the best Cream releases to be announced in the past few years… and a definite claim for your collection.”

  2. Wow I am guessing thanks owed to sluggo (legend!) to ask for all four discs - Thanks for this Big O great to have it all . . . . well most of it

    Great quality

  3. Ditto ! Thanks to Sluggo and BigO. It’s pretty
    easy to complete LA and Oakland.

  4. hey..thanks goes to Bigo O here for sure!!!!

  5. May thanks for this (and disc 3). It’s great to finally hear these shows in soundboard quality. When you think back to what else was going on musically in ‘68, Cream was far ahead of their time and still sound fresh today, nearly 50 years later.

  6. one of my favorite bands ever…thanks again for a real gem, bigO!

    By metaljohn333 on May 12, 2016

  7. Wow…thanks for this and for CD3 too…the “Complete” Goodbye. Always loved the live tracks off Goodbye and Live Cream, but always wishing to hear more from these shows. Can’t do any better than this…wonder why they never decided to put this out as a legit box.

    Also thanks for the John Denver 1982 and re-posting the 73 Purple show in Berlin. I’ve got a lot of listening to do now!

  8. Wow! What a treat! Big thanks to BigO!

  9. As far as sourcing the omitted tracks: 10/04/68 (complete) is available under the title “Silver Horses Running Moonbeams In Your Dark Eyes” - in SBD but likely not remixed/remastered (as this newer version is). 10/19/68 (complete) is likewise available as “Sweet Cream”…and, if I’m not mistaken, there’s a glitch inherent in the original source at the very beginning of “White Room.” Curious to hear if it’s in this version. 10/20/68 (complete) was posted here the other day. Finally, 10/18/68 (partial) is available on disc #2 of “Roaring Marshall Stacks.” Enjoy! Peace to Jack, Eric & Ginger.

  10. The beginning of Clapton’s solo on “Sunshine Of Your Love” at the Forum is a real Highlight. Thanks a lot !

  11. Track 209 corrupt at 16:31, thank you for all.
