Eric Clapton recorded a BBC session a few days after joining the
Bluesbreakers, on 26 April 1965, that included the first three titles
listed above. The bootleg "Beano's Boys" includes several of the same
tracks as this CD, including these same three tracks (same performances,
but probably recorded from radio on "Beano's Boys"). In any case, these
three tracks are of better sound quality on "Crocodile Walk"/"Bulldogs For
Sale." "Crawling Up A Hill," on "Beano's Boys," begins with a
BBC
announcer: "This was recorded on the 24th of the ... fourth, beg your
pardon, the 26th of the fourth, in 1965. And to the best of our knowledge,
according to all the records we can dig out, of the BBC archives, it does
feature the guitar work of Mr. Eric Clapton. Here is John Mayall."

Jack Bruce was a member of Mayall's band for about six weeks, from October
or November until December 1965, when he joined Manfred Mann. A BBC
session, probably with Jeff Kribett (on loan from Dr. K's Blues Band) on
guitar and Jack Bruce on bass (both tracks on the "Crocodile Walk"/"Bulldogs
For Sale" 
CDs), took place during October or November 1965, before Clapton's return to Mayall's band.
     I'm Your Witchdoctor
     Cheating Woman

Some copies of this glossy gatefold U.S. release just contain plain
inner sleeves featuring the Scorpion logo (i.e. no track source details or
additional photos). (P.W.) There seems to be a manufacturing error on some
(possibly all?) of the second CDs (as compared to "Real Cream") that
has caused the entire second disc to have a "buzz" or "static"
running through it. The noise starts off quite quietly but grows until
by about 30 mins. into the disc when it is almost as loud as the source
material.  Does anyone have a copy without this distortion???? (J.W. / R.B.)

Eric Clapton recorded a BBC session a few days after joining the
Bluesbreakers, on 26 April 1965, that included the first three titles
listed above. The bootleg "Beano's Boys" includes several of the same
tracks as this CD, including these same three tracks (same performances,
but probably recorded from radio on "Beano's Boys"). In any case, these
three tracks are of better sound quality on "Crocodile Walk"/"Bulldogs For
Sale." "Crawling Up A Hill," on "Beano's Boys," begins with a
BBC
announcer: "This was recorded on the 24th of the ... fourth, beg your
pardon, the 26th of the fourth, in 1965. And to the best of our knowledge,
according to all the records we can dig out, of the BBC archives, it does
feature the guitar work of Mr. Eric Clapton. Here is John Mayall."

Jack Bruce was a member of Mayall's band for about six weeks, from October
or November until December 1965, when he joined Manfred Mann. A BBC
session, probably with Jeff Kribett (on loan from Dr. K's Blues Band) on
guitar and Jack Bruce on bass (both tracks on the "Crocodile Walk"/"Bulldogs
For Sale" 
CDs), took place during October or November 1965, before Clapton's return to Mayall's band.
     I'm Your Witchdoctor
     Cheating Woman
     Nowhere To Run

A BBC session on 19 March 1966 included the following tracks:
     On Top Of The World
     Key To Love
     Hideaway
     Little Girl
     Tears In My Eyes
     Parchman Farm
     Steppin' Out
     Hideaway (alternate take)

19. Supermarket Day (2:29) - 30 October (broadcast 5 November) 1967, Top Gear, BBC, London (John Mayall: keyboards, harmonica, guitar, vocals; Mick Taylor: guitar; Paul Williams [or Keith Tillman]: bass; Keef Hartley: drums; Dick Heckstall-Smith: soprano and tenor sax; Chris Mercer: tenor sax).
20. Snowy Wood (3:00) - 30 October (broadcast 5 November) 1967, Top Gear, BBC, London (John Mayall: keyboards, harmonica, guitar, vocals; Mick Taylor: guitar; Paul Williams [or Keith Tillman]: bass; Keef Hartley: drums; Dick Heckstall-Smith: soprano and tenor sax; Chris Mercer: tenor sax).
21. Suspicions (3:35) - 30 October (broadcast 5 November) 1967, Top Gear, BBC, London (John Mayall: keyboards, harmonica, guitar, vocals; Mick Taylor: guitar; Paul Williams [or Keith Tillman]: bass; Keef Hartley: drums; Dick Heckstall-Smith: soprano and tenor sax; Chris Mercer: tenor sax).
22. Picture On The Wall (2:47) - 26 March 1968, Top Gear, BBC, London (John Mayall: harmonica, vocals; Mick Taylor: guitar; Andy Fraser: bass; Keef Hartley: drums; Dick Heckstall-Smith: tenor, soprano sax; Chris Mercer: tenor or baritone sax; Henry Lowther: trumpet).
23. Knockers Step Forward (3:00) - 26 March 1968, Top Gear, BBC, London (John Mayall: harmonica, vocals; Mick Taylor: guitar; Andy Fraser: bass; Keef Hartley: drums; Dick Heckstall-Smith: tenor, soprano sax; Chris Mercer: tenor or baritone sax; Henry Lowther: trumpet).
24. I'm Gonna Fight For You J.B. (4:11) - Unidentified date and venue. Listed incorrectly as (22 May) 1969, (Glocke), Bremen, West Germany (which tour took place with Mayall's 4-piece band [John Mayall: keyboards, harmonica, guitar, vocals; Mick Taylor: guitar; Keith Tillman: bass. Colin Allen: drums] following the summer 1968 breakup of the Bluesbreakers), the track must have been recorded in (late 1967 or) 1968 with the Crusade or Bare Wires-era Bluesbreakers, which had horns, or by a later, 1970s Mayall band. The first guitar solo may well have been played by Mayall himself, then Mick Taylor, probably, plays another simple and quiet solo.
25. The Laws Must Change (3:45) - 30 December 1969, Music Scene, Los Angeles (John Mayall: harmonica, vocals; Jon Mark: guitar; Steve Thompson: bass; Johnny Almond: sax).

Although this CD is named after the two supposed venues, it is almost certain
that at least half of the music on this CD does not come from the named
source. Be warned!  

This information was submitted recently:
"I knew the perpetrators of this particular cd.  They pressed 1000 discs,
and prepared some nice artwork, but never really listened to the tape. 
They played one of the discs for me and I thought it sounded a lot like
the two officially released live Cream lps ("Live Cream" & "Live Cream
Vol. 2") "Sitting On Top Of The World" and "I'm So Glad"
sounded like the
same versions found on "Goodbye".  I mentioned this to them and we
compared the albums to the cds and lo and behold, the material was
identical. . . ."

"Basically, this disc is a pirate.  The only difference between this
release and the official product is that the pirate runs at the incorrect
speed."

Given the difference in CD lengths, I'd guess that this is a not a reissue of "Farewell Tour - Searching In Dallas 1968" - Original Precious Masters - OPM-001/2 - sb5". I haven't heard that one, but if it's from the same recording somewhere down the line, I can see where someone would give it a sb5 rating - it really is an excellent audience recording, especially given the time period. The giveaway is some clapping, etc. near the taper in "toad". (M.D.)

Toad is faded out after 1:13
The following was sent by a Cream fan:
The date on the back of the cover reads August ??, 1968 (tiny psychedelic
font that is impossible to read), but this date ain't right...

All the tracks are audience tapes which appear to come from San Franciso
(at the Fillmore Auditorium or Winterland) in March, 1968;

1. Sunshine Of Your Love (unreleased version)
2. NSU ("Live Cream" version)
3. Steppin' Out (unreleased version)
4. Traintime (unreleased version)
5. Toad intro (unreleased version)
   (the full length performance of this version of "Toad" does exist)
6. Tales Of Brave Ulysses ("Live Cream Vol.2" version)
7. Spoonful ("Wheels Of Fire" version)
8. Crossroads ("Wheels Of Fire" version)   (Yes, this version, AGAIN...)
9. We're Going Wrong (unreleased version)
10. Sweet Wine ("Live Cream" version)

All these tracks are from audience tapes, which seems a shame
when at least half of this bootleg has been released on high quality
official recordings.  Also, the CD plays more than a whole-tone sharp.  (J.W. / R.B.)

John Mayall may also feature on the tracks that are unaccounted for. This
cannot be confirmed at present.

According to an e-mail I received, "the two tracks at the end titled 'Eric at the Mojo Club
(part 1)'
and 'Eric at the Mojo club (Part 2) are not Cream or Mayall w/ Clapton. The first track
is a Mayall session with Peter Green on guitar (actual title 'Mayfair Blues') and the second track
is a Mayall session with Mick Taylor on guitar (actual title 'Snowy Wood')." (G.W.)

EC/Jack Bruce (Bass)/Ginger Baker (Drums)

Crossroads/White Room/Deserted Cities of the Heart/Tales of Brave Ulysses/
Politician/Sunshine of Your Love/Spoonful/Steppin' Out

The "Crossroads" on this CD is the same as the one that features on "Wheels
Of Fire", hence the date. (J.M.)
I've been told that it is likely that the entire contents of this CD are
pirated from Wheels of Fire - Live, and Live Cream. "Crossroads" is the most
obvious, with the tell-tale "Eric Clapton, Please" "Kerfoffle" at the end.
