New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Universal Music is delighted to announce the 4-CD, special edition of Cream's Goodbye Tour Live 1968. Set for release in February 2020, this sumptuous set brings together 36 tracks, including 29 making their first appearance on CD, recorded during Cream's farewell tour of the U.S. in October 1968 and their final UK date at London's Royal Albert Hall on November 26 of that same year. There are a total of 19 previously unreleased tracks, and a further 10 tracks from the Royal Albert Hall show, which have only ever been available on DVD. Rolling Stone magazine's David Fricke supplies insightful liner notes, chronicling the group's collective musical genius and their legendary final tour.

On its original release in February 1969, Goodbye, which combined live performances from their last tour dates with a handful of studio recordings, rose to the UK no. 1 slot and to no. 2 on the U.S. Billboard chart. This new expanded edition comprises three U.S. concerts; Oakland Coliseum, Los Angeles Forum, San Diego Sports Arena alongside London's Royal Albert Hall. It captures Cream at their virtuosic best, at the end but also at the height of their career.

With Cream, Ginger Baker, Jack Bruce and Eric Clapton, set the template for not only the 'supergroup' but also the 'power trio', with their innate musical talent and brilliance. Only coming together as Cream in July 1966, they shone briefly but blindingly brightly throughout two trailblazing years.
