Sublime choice! RIP
Great jam, as always!
Great album covers. Really captured the times.
If only Clapton's solo work was this good.
@moondog you know that it is superb and I know - stop by and listen to this amazing track - brilliant in itself - so much began with this.
@Axol @simonp @jubaloo @florencevibert At London's Speakeasy nightclub in 1967, Sharp fell into conversation with Eric Clapton, who disclosed he had just written a tune, to which Sharp replied, “I've just written some lyrics”. Scribbling on a napkin, he handed the verse to Clapton, along with his address. On the napkin were the words to Tales of Brave Ulysses.
@moondog Precious trivia! Thanks.
This news is very sad indeed but a great jam
@moondog that makes sense, i always thought the lyrics were vastly superior to anything Cream came up with
@raal Yes, it's definitely my favourite track by them.
Always been my fav too.
the brilliant creators of those album covers that was a big part of the culture years ago must be honoured..Cream,Yes,Hawkwind...so many, great artists from every medium.
@lynn200 Checking out the great cover art was a buzz. Cds just don't compare.
