On June 11 1966, Frank Sinatra was on top of the record charts with
"Strangers in the Night" and this announcement appeared in Melody Maker:

A sensational new 'groups' group' starring Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker is being formed. Top groups will be losing star
instrumentalists as a result. Manfred Mann will lose bassist, harmonica player, pianist and singer Jack Bruce; John Mayall will lose brilliant
blues guitarist Eric Clapton; and Graham Bond's Organisation will lose incredible drummer Ginger Baker. The group say they hope to start
playing at clubs, ballrooms and theatres in a month's time. It is expected they will remain as a trio with Jack as featured vocalist.

Cream was about to be born, and the world of music would never be the same.
