Cream: White Room and Tales Of Brave Ulysses.

"White Room" is a psychedelic rock song, written by bassist Jack Bruce and poet Pete Brown, who was a friend of Cream bass player Jack Bruce. Brown also wrote the words for "Sunshine Of Your Love" and "I Feel Free."

Rolling Stone magazine claims that "White Room" has "The exact same lines for guitar, bass and drums" as "Tales Of Brave Ulysses." If you listen to both songs, they are a little similar.

Eric Clapton used a Wah-Wah pedal on his guitar. He got the idea from Jimi Hendrix.

Dawn, one of my favorite Cream songs. BTW the producer of this album, went on to be a member of the 70's band Mountain.
