I was fortunate to see them at the Royal Albert Hall in London, November 1968. I was what the British Army called a 'boy soldier', I'd joined September 1967 at 15 (you can't do that now) basically to serve an Army apprenticeship. Eventually served 22 years 6 months and 4 days..!! I was on leave and visiting a friend in London and happened on the concert. I got some very strange looks from people as my hair was a certified Army cut; shaved up the sides, flat top above..!! I think people might have thought I was a cop..
I loved Cream's music then and I still do now. So, in memory of Ginger Baker I have "Wheels of Fire" playing in the background... excellent stuff.
