Cream was a British band comprised of Eric Clapton (guitar and vocals), Jack Bruce (bass and vocals) and Ginger Baker (drums). Apart from releasing original tunes, like White Room and Sunshine of Your Love which have become rock classics, Cream covered some then obscure blues compositions like Skip James‘ I’m So Glad, and played a major role in exposing the blues to a much wider audience.
Cream’s cover of Robert Johnson’s Cross Road Blues (Cream covered Robert Johnson composition under the title Crossroads) is referenced on the Mississippi Blues Trail marker for Rosedale in Rosedale, Mississippi.
