Album cover: Live Cream II

Live Cream Volume II

As promised, my con­tin­u­a­tion of live Cream for the month of May fea­tures Live Cream Volume II of their orig­i­nal releas­es. Man, I love these guys. I think I bought this album at Big K in Hoptown around 1972 and have had it in my col­lec­tion ever since, although now in CD format. 

BigK had some great selec­tions at that time. This was my first Cream album–what a start!
