Music Diary – 9th December

Welcome to my Music Diary – today for the 9th December!

Cream - Fresh Cream

On the 9th December 1966 the Cream debut „Fresh Cream“ was released. It was not only the first LP for the British supergroup feat. Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker – this LP marked also the first release for the new independent label Reaction Records, which was run by procuder Robert Stigwood. On the same day the sinlge „I feel free“ hit also the stores. This song is not featured on the UK edition of the LP, but it has been put on the US release (instead of the Willie Dixon cover „Spoonful„), which was first available in January 1967. The recording sessions for „Fresh Cream“ took place at the Rayrik and Ryemuse Studios in London from July until October 1966. The album reached No. 6 on the UK and No. 39 on the US chart.

Music Diary – 25th June

Hey Musicfans all around the world!

Welcome again to my music diary – today for the 25th June!

Back in 2001 I accompanied a friend of mine to see one of his guitar heroes – Mr. Gary Moore! The guitar wizard from North Ireland played with his band in Munich at the Colosseum and it was obvious that my friend was very looking forward to the show 😉

But to be honest – I hardly can remember the gig and I do think that he played mostly songs from the current album of that time called „Back to the Blues“ and of course some of his legendary hits like „Still got the Blues“ and „Walking by myself„. The likely setlist you can find here:

As you might know Gary Moore left the building far too soon – he passed away at the age of 58 on the 6th February 2011 – R.I.P.
