Reprinted on or about: 2007-04-25
Original LP release:1967.11
Obi:"Eric Clapton Paper Sleeve Collection"
Single sleeve. The first of two Cream covers created by Martin Sharp
(who also co-wrote the lyric to "Tales Of Brave Ulysses").
Lyrics:Japanese and English lyrics on standard paper foldout.
Martin Sharp was later quoted as saying "The meeting of musician and artist directly without intermediaries is, and always has and will be, a fruitful one. Such was the goodwill that existed in London during the late '60's that a painter from Australia could meet a great musician from England and informally give him some lyrics which would become a song, a friendship, a career with Tiny Tim, and a record cover ...".
The story of Sharp's and Clapton's meeting (and the writing of the lyric) is mildly curious and provides an insight into the time during which Cream's albums were made. It can be found at milesago.com.
