The Low Spark Of High-Heeled Boys - TRAFFIC
Actually Crossroads was recorded Sunday March 10 & they were in the old Fillmore Auditorium [and not Winterland] when they recorded it. Cream was recorded 'live' 4 consecutive nights in SF--Thur March 7 at the Fillmore, both Fri & Sat were at the larger Winterland Ballroom [across the street from the Fillmore], & then back to the old Fillmore Auditorium for Sunday March 10`s performance. Bill Graham chose the smaller & less expensive Fillmore Aud. for Thur`s & Sun`s shows because he knew there weren`t going to be as many people attending those 2 nights. You can read about these 4 days of Cream in SF in Billy Stapleton`s story on his website--it`s titled 'A Romp with Cream'--you`ll have to scroll down to find it [& there are 2 great pictures there that he took of both Clapton & Cream performing which are great!]. Here`s the link to his story & also a great picture of Clapton & Ginger Baker on that infamous Sunday March 10th night at the old Fillmore Auditorium.Winterland 68 Cream crossroads & and if you have to ask why just play some of this your answer is in the guitar !
