JACK BRUCE
Spirit: Live At The BBC 1971-1978
(Polydor)

 

The genius behind Cream and possibly the greatest living singing bass guitarist from the golden age of ‘60s rock, Jack Bruce is honored on a triple live BBC CD box set. Released in 2008 on Polydor in the U.K., Jack Bruce: Spirit Live At The BBC 1971-1978 features Jack in the company of some great players including Graham Bond, Chris Spedding, John Marshall, Jon Hiseman, John Surman (from 1971/72), Mick Taylor, Carla Bley, Bruce Gary (from 1978) and his 1977 band with Hughie Burns, Tony Hymas and Simon Phillips (from ‘77/78.) 2008 liner notes by historian Mark Powell goes into career detail while also featuring a number of historic photos of Jack with The Graham Bond Organization, Cream, Lifetime, West, Bruce & Laing and more. With the recent reformation of Cream in 2005 and a 2007 studio album with guitar great Robin Trower, it’s gratifying to see Jack in back in the spotlight again. A time capsule of Jack’s overwhelming stage presence, these now historic live BBC archival CD recordings shed further light on Jack’s career as a pioneering rock superstar. www.jackbruce.com
