CREAM
Psychedelic Circus [Mid Valley Records MV 354, 1CD]

Live at Madison Square Garden, New York, NY; November 2, 1968. Fair to good audience recording.

Here’s one for the hardcore fans. Thanks to the person who shared this on the net in 2006.

Uploader’s notes:

This is one show of Cream’s that has never been done justice till now. It’s wandered around in bits and pieces in awful sound quality. The friendly folks at Mid Valley have now gotten their hands on a complete tape and applied that Mid Valley magic. The sound quality still isn’t great but is a vast improvement over every release I’ve ever heard.

wgpsec at collectorsmusicreviews.com:

This performance from Madison Square Garden in front of 22,000 is the third to last show of Cream’s Farewell Tour in the US before returning to London for their final two Royal Albert Hall performances. The insert has a short essay about the show and some quotes from Jack Bruce describing the show as bizarre. “It was a very strange gig, on a revolving stage, which must have been horrible for the audience. They’d get a glimpse of the drums, guitar, and bass and then they’d all go away again”. This revolving stage may explain the dramatic changes in sound quality throughout the disc.

Psychedelic Circus is either compiled from two different sources or is the result of the revolving stage. The recording starts off distant and very thin with plenty of top end distortion. The sound rates only about a five and the drums during “White Room” and “Politician” actually sound paper thin. Clapton’s guitar becomes more prominent during “Politician”…

“Spoonful” is very long with the band going off on a few tangents and there is also a small part that sounds like the taper was concealing the microphone under his coat. Jack Bruce’s comments at the end are too muffled to make out. It would have been nice to hear his final words to the New York audience… Thanks to Mid Valley, we finally have a much more complete version of this show from MSG but the sound quality keeps this to the die hard Cream fans.

  3. the cream were the best and most innovative trio of their time.
    Jimi Hendrix alone was amazing but his band was not as good as bruce and baker.
    thanks.

    By stump rivers on Sep 14, 2014

  4. there was no hendrix alone. he was with the experience. cream was a jazz rock outfit. the experience was out n out rock. there were other trios out there tho to consider too. what about taste with rory gallagher? while just a couple of yrs later there was beck bogart and appice. where is your cut off point when u say of their time? how tight is that window? can we extend it from 66-72 - giving it a 6 yr opening?
    if we can include zz top since they started in 69.. they might fit in there. im betting there are other trios that some people can come up with that im not even considering.
    btw - zz top - the only band that has its original line up thru 6 different decades. wow!

    By darth on Sep 14, 2014

  5. “cream was a jazz rock outfit.”

    o lordy! call 9-1-1 i just busted my gut laughing!

    By barth on Sep 15, 2014

  6. And let’s not forget The Mahavishnu Orchestra, the finest backing band that Perry Como ever had.

    By The Mother Ship on Sep 15, 2014

  7. cream jazz? that`s a new one from our resident musical dunce. what were the monkees then darth avant garde electronica?

    By stump rivers on Sep 15, 2014

  8. i was at this show. yes, the revolving stage was really a drag. as i remember, the stage didn’t move for the opening acts (buddy miles express and … lost in memory). after each set, the stage hands would remove gear until all that was left was a drum riser with a huge speaker stack on one side of ginger and another stack to his right, dividing the stage directly across the middle of the stage. so cream started playing and all of a sudden the stage starts to turn, slowly but steadily. the sound truly sucked: when the guitar amps were aimed at you, clapton’s leads were piercing. when they were 180 degrees away, you couldn’t really make it out at all. the bass, of course, spreads more and so it sounded a little more even, but so what. it was all like one giant and slow wah-wah pedal applied to all the instruments. vocals probably came from a circular speaker array above the stage which didn’t move, because i don’t remember the voices being affected. a memorable night, because it was the only time i saw cream in concert, but it must have sucked for them too, constantly turning in slow circles. can’t even bring myself to listen to this, since it’s just going to remind me of a very strange night in the garden, but thanks to Big O for putting it up and getting to think about a long-past night.

    By mr. stu on Sep 15, 2014

  9. great to hear from someone who was actually there.

    By stump rivers on Sep 15, 2014

  10. The way this was described, it reminds me of Wash D.C. Beatles 64 in the round. The video shows the lads including John, (while holding onto his guitar?) having to help move the stage around. But at least it stopped each quarter turn while they played. (Washington D.C. amateur night - guess that hasn’t changed much politically! Each time we elect someone new in, it still sucks).

    By Job Hunter on Sep 15, 2014

  11. darth doesn’t listen to music. He just collects it. So how’s he supposed to know what kind of music Cream played?

    By Willis on Sep 15, 2014

  12. of course i listen to music.
    btw.. when yes played the garden at least into the 80s they played in the round as they called it. this was on a revolving stage but not all the speakers were on the stage. many of them were dangling above the stage and they never moved. course in 68 i dont know if all the speakers that cream would have used would all be on the stage with them. that likely would account for sound problems with the audience’s ears. since there had been other shows prior to this at the garden i would imagine they would know about that sort of sound problem ahead of time. i dont know whether or not cream would have been the first in the round band tho. i also dont know if the garden had any in the round performances at its previous locations but i would doubt it.

    i think its pretty odd that some of u never heard cream referred to as jazz rock. they started the improvizations with rock that were mostly associated with jazz. both jack and ginger (whose band it was) were both trained jazz musicians bringing their jazz chops to a new format. while there are touches of blues thru out their music of course the overall sound is still jazz rock mainly because of the unique improvizational skills they used to extend most of the songs since they didnt have that much of a repertoire and the shows would have been 30-45mins long if they played the songs without the extended jams. most music of the era didnt have that. cream introduced this having gotten the idea from jazz giants. jack was more of a classically trained musician who had a lot of jazz experience. ginger asked him to form a band with him. eric was the final member to be asked as he was a friend and thought to be someone who could fill an integral part of the band if only jack and gingers egos wouldnt ultimately get in the way.

    By darth on Sep 15, 2014

  13. @darthy…
    yeah Glen unfortunately you listen to all those voices in your head as well…

    By Jerry's Finger on Sep 15, 2014

  14. well there you have it folks the history of jazz rock by the very accomplished dip shit music aficionado and collector of all things monkees.

    By stump rivers on Sep 15, 2014

  15. I was also at this show! Thanks, first of all for getting this out!!

    Yes, the sound was miserable. Not like the Beatles in DC, the entire stage was in the center of the hall and revolved constantly at a slow pace throughout Cream’s set. I haven’t had a chance to listen to the recording yet, but I’ll bet it was just like that night in the hall. If memory serves, they did the same thing to Blind Faith a few months later: that would be another gig to find!

    While we are discussing shows to dig out: Does anyone have the “Summer Festival For Peace” at Shea Stadium or the “winter Festival For Peace” at MSG? Been looking for those since 1970.

    The other opening act was Terry Reid, as I recall.

    Cheers,

  16. ive been looking for the shea stadium sets for 30 odd years. i have found dozens of photos but not one single song from it. in fact other than online articles i only know one or two other people who remember it happening. i lived only a few blocks from it so it was no problem for me to get there. i was so surprised how many empty seats there were but i also remember it being so hot that many ppl went home early.

    By darth on Sep 16, 2014

  17. maybe ppl left early because cream did an extended jazz rock set…

    By barth on Sep 16, 2014

  18. maybe ppl left early because cream did an extended jazz rock set…

    wham ! love it!

  19. jimi and bog at msg without silly revolving stage.
    jan 1970

    By ELP on Sep 16, 2014

  20. it was 1970 cream was gone for 2 yrs by then.
    and yes of course many bands did shows at the garden without the revolving stage. but a bunch of bands did shows with it. i think maybe the recorder was very close to the stage so he didnt get the full benefit of the dangling from the ceiling speakers which would have given a better fuller sound without that swirling in/out fading sound. the further back u would be the better the sound would be for that sort of show.
    when yes did the drama tour at the garden in 1980 they did it in the round.

    By darth on Sep 17, 2014

  21. @darthy…ok glen I did a little fact checking to prove once again you are a liar con man the king of making stuff up…

    if you click on the historical weather link I provide August 6 1970 wasn’t even the hottest day in NYC that year it was in May…the hottest day on record of Aug 6 happened in 1989…

    was it hotter than the avg daily temp there of 85 yes. but no more than 92 degrees so if you think that was hot why people left think again you dimwit…

    you just like to make things up like always….he’ll you probably were not even in attendance you would be what only like 6 yrs old brat right? but here’s the link figure out another whopper glenny will you to get out of another blatant lie…

    https://weatherspark.com/history/31081/1970/New-York-United-States

    By Jerry's Finger on Sep 17, 2014

  22. ^people left because if you were there in attendance that day of August 6 1970 glen…

    they wanted to leave to get away from this whiny 6 yr old brat dimwit who was crying all damn day more than likely…!!!

    By Jerry's Finger on Sep 17, 2014

  23. Are you sure you meant to post on the Cream page, darthy?
    It wasn’t The Commodores you were looking for? I know how easily you mix up band names.

    By The Mother Ship on Sep 17, 2014

  24. i surely didnt say it was the hottest day that summer. i am sure it wouldnt be. i dont think people left because it was only very hot but keep in mind that it was 30-40000 people or more cosidering that they were on the field too where as the stadium seats themselves held 550000 people. it didnt sell out but after a few hours of the show many ppl started to leave. maybe the event didnt hold their interest. who knows? it could have been partially due to the heat. i surely didnt suggest that it was the hottest day of the year. i know it was very hot but hottest? no i didnt suggest that. but then there arent outdoor concerts at shea stadium every day either.
    i made nothing up. people did go home early. part of it was surely because of the heat.

    as for being there.. yes i was there and i was 10 yrs old. as i said it was only a few blocks from my home.

    i posted here because of the comment by tapedog. yes i made an error with a message i got in my email about an announcement of an album and tour by a band with a similar name earlier but it was after many hrs being awake and eyesight that is failing after so many hrs of being awake. i dont normally make that sort of mistake. get over it.

    By darth on Sep 17, 2014

  25. you’re a fucking troll Glenn….

    I didn’t say you said it was the hottest day dimwit!!!

    I just presented the facts that it “wasn’t the hottest day” so you implied in your statement in the same sentence it was hot & that people left. you dumb shit, you don’t know why they left!! you were only a 10 yrs old a snotty brat kid at that I’m sure….good chance that’s why people left to get away from you…

    & c’mon we know why people left that day moron…it just wasn’t as good as the winter festival earlier that year in the garden…

    you are a fucking twit troll…!!!

    but have a good day asshole….!!!

    By Jerry's Finger on Sep 18, 2014

  26. Derth, you’re a duck. Sorry, darth, you’re a dick. Eyesight going….must…sleep….
    How about you have a Big Sleep?

    By The Mother Ship on Sep 18, 2014

  27. The Summer Festival For Peace was an amazing show. Look at the lineup, all in one day:

    Pacific Gas & Electric, John Sebastian,Poco, Paul Butterfield, Ginya Ravan & 10 Wheel Drive, Paul Simon’s first solo show, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Steppenwplf, Janis Joplin (with her new band)and more I can’t remember.

    By Tapedog on Sep 19, 2014

  28. u left out jimi and unless im mistaken.. the rascals too. i have a list of the bands but not with me right now. i also thought johnny winter was there. but i could be wrong on that.

    By darth on Sep 20, 2014

  29. stop it Glen just stop it…!!!

    jimi didn’t play it…yeah that’s why people left cause jimi was going to play…lol…

    stop the lies the misinformation you twit…!!!

    “if I’m not mistaken”…wouldn’t you know remember if you were there if jimi played or not…?

    god you’re a moron twit con man…just give it up you dumbass…!!!

    By Jerry's Finger on Sep 20, 2014

  30. winter festival yes but not the summer festival…so once again the question is were you really there glen on August 6 or just making stuff up like you do on occasion here & god knows where else huh…?

    By Jerry's Finger on Sep 20, 2014

  31. JF, you’ll have to excuse Darth, he is easily confused as he has such a heavy workload, up all night posting tv schedules and regaling us with tales of concerts and his Rock n’ Roll chums. He needs a holiday.
    So Darth, why not visit England? I believe Mahavishnu is nice at this time of year.

    By The Mother Ship on Sep 20, 2014

  32. the unless im mistaken was about the rascals. not jimi. yes jimi did play there that day. i dont recall if the rascals played. i am positive that jimi played. i saw jimi 3-4x in my life. but again i was 9 and 10 when i saw him play. i dont recall a lot of things from that time in my life. but i do recall that event at shea.
    if u think that people wouldnt leave a festival knowing that jimi would be playing.. i remind u of woodstock a year earlier. there were half a million present. when jimi got on stage around 10000 were left to see him. granted it was monday morning 830am but still only 10k down from 500k. thats a huge difference. and they all knew he was coming out and he did a 17 song set no less. approximately 125mins long.
    since we are talking about shea stadium.. they didnt have winter festivals at an outdoor venue like shea stadium.
    i have visited eng. once back in summer 80. for the floyd wall shows. i saw all the usa shows and 3 eng ones. even roger knows that im the only non paid human to have seen every usa performance of the tour as well as a few british performances. i did pretty good - seeing 15 of 31 of the shows. id have seen the potsdamer platz one in 90 if i coulda gotten there but i wasnt able to. got the jacket and program tho.

    By darth on Sep 20, 2014

  33. i saw jimi 3-4x in my life. but again i was 9 and 10 when i saw him play.

    that just doesn`t jibe with you saying you saw him play at ‘the scene” in new york . don`t deny because the posts are here afrom a long time back anyone can search them out…you would not have got into the scene at ten years old.

    By little pancake on Sep 20, 2014

  34. Jimi Hendrix did NOT play at the aug 6 1970 peace concert.

    By little pancake on Sep 20, 2014

  35. @ Ed Saad - have you found the new Hear Rock city yet? If not, it is located at http://w11.zetaboards.com/HEAR_ROCK_CITY/index/

    You don’t need to join to access the main features.

    HOWEVER, there are a couple of interesting ‘members only’ sections that make it worth joining and logging in to access them - including many gems that Smoker posts.

    Happy listening :)

  36. glen I don’t read your long mindless diatribes but you are a flat out liar period you fucking con man!!! jimi played the winter show in jan at the garden not the Shea show in August!!!

    By Jerry's Finger on Sep 20, 2014

  37. i didnt say i saw him at 8. i saw him at 9 and 10 yrs old. i didnt say i saw him play the scene club. i am sure he did play shea stadium that day at the peace concert.

    By darth on Sep 20, 2014

  38. I didn’t say you did see him play at 8 9 10 numnut…!!!

    IF YOU DID you would have to been around that age you mindless fuck!!!

    you’re a pathetic troll glen you con man…!!!

    heres jimi AT THE GARDEN JAN 28 WINTER PEACE FRSTIVAL

    http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=yMeYFzM05MQ

    By Jerry's Finger on Sep 20, 2014

  39. darth you did write here on one of the old hendrix posts that you saw jimi at the scene.

    By little pancake on Sep 20, 2014

  40. darth will say he meant ‘the scene’ in a colloquial way….

    By barth on Sep 21, 2014

  41. barth that’s the way I’m using it here…jimi scene ‘67-70 so our resident dimwit glen would’ve been 7-10 yrs old catching Hendrix concerts….

    yeah right little glenny…lol….

    By Jerry's Finger on Sep 21, 2014

  42. the scene ! lol…

    By little pancake on Sep 21, 2014

  43. i never said i saw jimi at the scene club. u are mistaken.
    u keep saying things then a few posts later u claim u never said them. thats insane. u keep doing that. i saw him 3-4x performing live. i only saw him when i was 9 and 10. that means all perfs were between may 69 and his death in sept 70. thats a period of approx 16 months. u knowing how i got to woodstock or who took me to see him each time i saw him or any of the shows i went to prior to 13 or so doesnt matter. i went to quite a few events from age 5 thru 13. course i went to many more after age 13 but before the end of the 60s i saw probably 100-200 shows.. not counting woodstock. if i counted that i would add 31 performances to my total shows seen. thats how many individual perfs there were at woodstock. i saw zep at central park in 69 and i saw almost every show in central park in the late 60s thru the 70s and 80s with only a few exceptions in the late 70s.

    By darth on Sep 21, 2014

  44. you’re a fucking troll glen…!!!

    so who took to see all these shows glenny at age 5-10…?

    By Jerry's Finger on Sep 21, 2014

  45. and once again Jimi did not play shea at the summer show just the winter one at the garden…

    By Jerry's Finger on Sep 21, 2014

  46. Lots of kids have an imaginary friend. Darth had imaginary concerts instead.
    And an imaginary life.
    And imaginary logic, where he accuses everyone else of doing exactly what he does himself.
    If brains were dynamite, he wouldn’t have enough to blow out a candle.

    By The Mother Ship on Sep 21, 2014

  47. obvisiouly adults have a wild imagination as well…we know of one dip shit con man liar make believer here…!

    right glenny…?

    so tell us how you attended all of these shows at age 5-10 glenny ‘65-’70…?

    By Jerry's Finger on Sep 21, 2014

  48. some links to prove a point -

    http://soundcheck.wnyc.org/story/41108-the-magic-of-shea-stadium/

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Festival_for_Peace

    in the above link u have to read this one carefully to catch how it includes jimi in the line up. note the way this is written - “Secondly, again in contrast to Woodstock where performers insisted on being paid, Peter Yarrow and Friedmann were able to convince the top acts of the day (including many that were paid at Woodstock like CCR, Hendrix and Joplin) to donate their time and performances to the Festival for Peace shows just months after Woodstock.”

    there would be no reason to mention those 3 artists names from one festival (woodstock) if they didnt play the peace concert also. see my point?

    heres another -
    http://www.glidemagazine.com/hiddentrack/scoop-time-shea-stadium-to-host-live-earth/

    now granted.. there are a bunch of sites that say it is unknown whether or not jimi played and some that say he never did. my point is that there are a bunch that say he did. i was 10. i remember a 12 hour day there with most bands or artists doing a few songs just like live aid in 85. and ccr did 45mins.
    the only reason i am on this page today is that i was looking for the other copy of the cream detroit show that was mentioned in the comments section of the recent posting of that show. i didnt remember seeing it here before but i was checking previously posted cream items and looked at this one. as i went thru some of the stupid comments from the idiots here i decided to post a follow up. yeah i know.. poking that bee hive. i already have seen the many sites saying the opposite pov. im just showing that some say what i say. thats all.
    i also saw that there were ppl who seem to remember things that never happened. i never said i saw jimi at the scene club. i would have been 7. i may have said i have the recording of course but seen it happen? no. i did see him at age 7 but not intentionally. i went to see the monkees in forest hills. it was only a mile from my home perhaps 2. i dont think i saw more than 4 or 5 concerts there total. talking heads in the early 80s was the last one i believe that i saw there. tom tom club played during the intermission.

    By darth on Dec 13, 2014

    see there you go poking things again.

  50. ” i remember a 12 hour day”

    what the fuck darth?
    a day has 12 hours now?

    good fucking lord
    you are insane

  51. there would be no reason to mention those 3 artists names from one festival (woodstock) if they didnt play the peace concert also. see my point?
    wow. you read what you want I read it as the author mentioning acts that actually got paid at WOODSTOCK. no conspiracy here numbnuts.

    By dropkick sarge on Dec 13, 2014

  52. things darth remembers.
    ” i remember a 12 hour day”
    I remember a jazz group named Cream and a chinese sounding guitar player named jeff beck.

  53. BELMO alert. There is one source I rely on for Jimi Hendrix gig listings and that is Belmo`s book “Experience the Music.”
    It has no listing for this date and as Belmo visits this site on occasion let`s hope he sees this and posts if he has anything to add to the discussion.

    By sluggo on Dec 13, 2014

  54. once again glen…

    yes jimi was a part of the concerts for peace SERIES…

    he played the WINTER SHOW AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN ON JANUARY 28th JUST A FEW SHORT MONTHS AFTER WOODSTOCK…!!!

    2 people who commented on your glidenmagazine link adamantly say jimi DID NOT PLAY…while one cites he was with a stoned up vet yes he did play…& then we get to your crazy ass comment from a then 10 year old punk who claims it was jimi & would have been his 3rd time seeing him…

    yeah right glenny…sure you did…

    the wiki link doesn’t mention jimi at Shea…not 1 photograph had ever been produced of jimi at Shea…no video…& lord knows there are tons of home shot video of jimi in concerts from ‘69-’70 used recently in documentarys…not 1 audio recording of jimi at Shea…not 1 listing of jimi at Shea on his list of concerts site…

    keep on dreaming big dreams pumpkin…

  58. you have no proof that darth is lying. why would he lie anyway? it doesn’t make sense.

  59. yes the day has 24 hours but the concert was about 12 hours. what the hell is wrong with u? it was a 12 hour concert day. it started in the late morning and went on til late evening. did u really not get this?

    as for the woodstock reference.. read it again. those 3 names were mentioned in wiki in parenthesis for a reason the way they were because they played both festivals.
    as for video.. um.. has anyone seen any video of any of the shea festival? no didnt think so. has anyone found any audio of any of that day? no? didnt think so. funny thing about that. not just jimi but literally no one who played even one single note that entire day. not ccr or paul simon or rascals or ccr. not one fucking single note whatsoever. yet the one u have a problem with is jimi hendrix. amazing. and because u dont see photos of him and u do see them for janis.. he couldnt have played there. do u see photos of the other 10 acts? i havent seen many. ive seen maybe 5-10 or so pics of some of them. not many. mostly janis since she headlined. but youre basing your belief on info such as there not being video or audio or pics. yet theres no audio or video or pics of anyone else. again pics of other than janis essentially. that argument doesnt stand up.

  61. as for the woodstock reference.. read it again.

    we don`t need to darth , you are the only one to think it means anything other than what it says. why do you continue to be such a dork?

  62. arent u embarrassed being the way u are? i am saying it means exactly what it says. u have to read it carefully.
    the festival for peace link that i offered is only about the specific show at shea stadium. period.
    in that link and only that link is where i took that particular quote from that i pasted. and in that particular line it says -

    “Secondly, again in contrast to Woodstock where performers insisted on being paid, Peter Yarrow and Friedmann were able to convince the top acts of the day (including many that were paid at Woodstock like CCR, Hendrix and Joplin) to donate their time and performances to the Festival for Peace shows just months after Woodstock.”

    so look carefully at that line. remember this is only about that particular concert at shea stadium. no other event. it says ‘able to convince the top acts of the day including jimi and janis and ccr to donate their time to the festival - again at shea.. remember they were paid to be at woodstock. they were not paid to be at shea. that is what they are talking about on this wikipedia page. pay attention u idiot!!!!!! it isnt referring to the concert at the garden. it is only referring to the shea concert since the one at the garden has its own page on wikipedia. do u understand this???? ccr and janis didnt appear at the garden. they arent mentioned as performing at the garden. u cant suddenly switch topics and say now theyre talking about the garden but here theyre talking about shea. the sentence doesnt do that. it is only referring to shea. it talks about one vs the other.. woodstock and shea. can u see that?????? why do i need to teach u how to read?????
    u say ‘we dont need to darth’ well hello?!?!? yes u do need to!!!! youre too fucking stupid and yes apparently u do need to u stupid fucking idiot!!!!!!! u do need to read it again.
    i dont think it means anything other than what it says u mindless asshole!!!!!!!

  63. Every time I see one of Darth’s rants, I think of Animal from The Muppets.
    A hairy, gibbering, foaming-at-the-mouth puppet.
    Then again, sometimes I think of a brown, slimy turd.
    I think today is a turd day. Perhaps we should change Thursday to Turdday in acknowledgement of his contribution to music appreciation.

  64. i dont think it means anything other than what it says u mindless asshole!!!!!!!

    now, are you sure?

  65. You are all wasting your time on this subject as Jimi Hendrix did not play this concert no matter what Darth says and once it has been proven he will never return to the subject the same way he has done before. He pokes the fire and gets all of you so worked up and then as soon as he is outted which happens nearly every time he quits that post and starts up another. Can`t you see that ? Can`t you see that this is his entertainment. There is hardly ever anyone else posting friday and saturday evenings because they are carrying on with their lives but not Darth.His life is in his room in front of a monitor stirring up shit . I know it is hard to ignore him but it can be done.I have been coming here for years and this is the first time I have ever reacted to him .It can be done, ignore the little troll.
