The British group Cream was composed of Eric Clapton (lead guitarist), Jack Bruce (bassist) and Ginger Baker (drummer). The trio that formed in 1966 and were together for only two short years and released 4 albums, but were considered to be "the greatest power trio of all time". Even after 30 years, there continues to be numerous compilations and live albums that are released. Their second and most popular albums, Disraeli Gears, was recorded in New York during their first tour in the United States. As can be seen from the album cover, it also more psychedelic than Fresh Cream, their first album, as a group. This psychedelic influence was attributed to Jimi Hendrix. Disraeli Gears included their now classic Sunshine of Your Love, which is still the most recognizable guitar licks of all time.
