The solos weave through the song, with an almost hypnotic effect. On one of the final overdubs, for the intro of White Room, Eric removed all Cream Wheels Of Fire Live At The Fillmore strings but one, and then bent that one string, unrestrained by any other, as far as he could. Eric says,"We were all very much into experimentation. The intro of White Room was made up of me feeding back on every string, so it was like six tracks of single strings feeding back. I thought that was a landmark in recording history.
We were all going places we didn't think any one had been before". From their humble four track recordings of Fresh Cream, they had progressed to eight tracks for Disraeli Gears, with no real knowledge as to how to best utilize the extra tracks.
By the time they were ready to record Wheels of Fire they had begun to appreciate the benefits of the techniques available to them. This raw two-track recording also dispels several long-standing myths regarding "Crossroads" on the Wheels Of Fire album, which is indeed this performance. Many have claimed Clapton's blistering solo a result of studio overdubbing, but here it is, fully intact, exactly as it went down, proving that one of the most blazing guitar solos of Cream Wheels Of Fire Live At The Fillmore time was indeed done spontaneously live on stage.
Cream Wheels Of Fire Live At The Fillmore noted historians have also claimed "Crossroads" to be an edited amalgamation of only the best parts, but that too is clearly not the case, as Cream really did manage to compress that much finesse and energy into a little over four minutes. Taking a few seconds to catch their collective breath after "Crossroads," the band next tackle Jack Bruce's "We're Going Wrong," which many listeners will find fascinating as it has never seen official release.
This is another fiery performance that slowly builds in intensity over the course of nearly eight minutes, well over twice the length of its studio counterpart.
Here Jack Bruce displays what a passionate singer he could be, while simultaneously playing extraordinary bass lines. A hybrid of blues, rock, and a dose of psychadelia, this is another exciting performance that demonstrates Cream's unique chemistry onstage. Along with the Jimi Hendrix Experience arguably Cream's only competition at the Elizabeth Cotten Freight Train And Other North Carolina Folk Songs And Tunes this music clearly foreshadows the "hard rock" Ten Years After Cricklewood Green that would come to dominate in the following decade.
Following "We're Going Wrong" the band take a minute or so to debate what to close with. If one listens closely, Clapton can be heard suggesting "Cat's Squirrel," but Baker vetoes the suggestion, and since they've yet to play one of his songs, they pursue "Sweet Wine," one of Baker's contributions to their debut album. Although the tape runs out six and a half minutes in, this still provides another excellent example of the group building up a powerful performance based on the collective strengths of the individual members.
Bruce and Baker are particularly impressive here, playing with a relentless fury that is well beyond what any rhythm section was attempting at the time. Clapton wails in response with seemingly boundless creativity. Reaching the pinnacle of their collective strength, Cream wouldn't last much longer and within a few short months; the constant bickering between Baker and Bruce would take its toll, leading the group to split up before years end.
For the not quite three short years they Paul And Ritchie And The Crying Shames September In The Rain together, Cream was a prolific unit, releasing four five if you count Wheels as a double albums that set a new standard for rock musicianship. Despite their personal volatility or perhaps in part, because of itCream burned brighter than most and left a lasting impression.
