On this day 26/11/1968

On this day 26/11/1968: Cream played their farewell concert, the second of two nights at the Royal Albert Hall, London. It was meant to be the final concert the band would ever play until they were briefly reunited nearly 40 years later in 2005. The concert was filmed with several versions of a final film being released. Cream themselves were not pleased with the final shows. Ginger Baker in the documentary "Cream: Classic Artists" stated his view that "It wasn’t a good gig; Cream was better than that" and "We knew it was all over. We knew we were just finishing it off".
