Cream was a popular British blues rock band that featured guitarist Eric Clapton, bassist Jack Bruce, and drummer Ginger Baker. In their two years of existence, Cream became known as one of the first power trios. Their sound, characterized by a melange of blues and psychedelia, combined the blues guitar playing of Eric Clapton, the manic drumming of Ginger Baker, and Jack Bruce's airy voice and intense basslines.

Cream's music was often based on traditional blues, with songs such as "Crossroads", "Born Under A Bad Sign", and "Spoonful". Cream's most famous hits included "White Room", "I Feel Free", "I'm So Glad", "NSU", "Sunshine of Your Love", and "Badge".
