Cream live version of course. Sometimes I find myself on the "pah" when I should be on the "Oom". Or visa versa.

Allegedly Clapton lost his way during the second solo, which is why it sounds great and is difficult to replicate.

You can see more than a couple tentative moments in this performance.

EC comes in late with the first line of verses 2 and 3, on the 'and' between the 1 and the 2. That may be why it sounds a little off balance.

I had also heard that Clapton had lost the beat. Additionally, what we hear is an edited-down version of a much longer performance. We got to hear the good parts.

A few years ago one of the TV channels had a piece on Thom Dowd, who had engineered Disraeli Gears. On "Sunshine of Your Love" Clapton (and perhaps Bruce too) was losing the beat, so Down suggested that Baker play a drum part like the Indians in the old westerns, with the accent on One (and three). BUM-bum-bum-bum BUM-bum-bum-bum.

Oh Yeah! The band is playing too fast. Do they think they're Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys?

Clapton is clearly struggling thru the verses, but sort of catches up on the solos.

There's a balance between funky and fast. Cream missed it on that night.

"I had also heard that Clapton had lost the beat. Additionally, what we hear is an edited-down version of a much longer performance. We got to hear the good parts."

If you go to Wolfgang's Vault they have the "off the board"
recording of "Crossroads" from Winterland the night that the famous track was cut. They dispell the rumor of the edits, the solos are intact as it appeared on the Album.

But, yes, Eric has said that he "lost the 1" on the second solo.

Read the description, the section on "Crossroads" is towards the bottom.

This Cream's On Fire...
