What does it sound like?:
A 2 cd retrospective of the career of Jack Bruce who passed away in October 2014. This album covers the periods 1966-78 and 2002-13. It features a wide range of his solo work, plus material from his time with Cream and a couple of tracks from the BBM project he did with Ginger Baker and Gary Moore. I had expected the solo material from his most well known early solo work, together with the Cream songs which are collected on CD1, to be the strongest things on offer here. What a surprise then to find that the lesser known songs from his later work, collected on the second cd, are just as good! All the classics are present and correct, 8 Cream songs (2 in mono), Rope Ladder To The Moon, Theme From an Imaginary Western, Weird of Hermiston to name but a few – but do check out the second cd to discover hitherto buried treasure.
