A one, a two, a three, a four. A mother was washing her baby one night; The youngest of ten and a delicate mite. The mother was poor and the baby was thin; 'Twas naught but a skeleton covered with skin. The mother turned 'round for a soap off the rack. Palmaccio at PolyGram Studios  for a release, including bonus photographs accompanying the original album artwork. The Disraeli Gears Deluxe Edition includes the complete album in both mono and stereo, demos, alternative takes and tracks taken from the band's live sessions on BBC radio.
Included is an outtake of "Blue Condition" with Eric Clapton on lead vocals, and demos of the songs "Weird of Hermiston" and "The Clearout" which were not released until Jack Bruce's first solo album Songs for a Tailor. The photography was by Bob Whitaker , known for works by the Beatles , including the controversial Yesterday and Today "butcher" cover.
Most of the photographs were taken in July , with shoots in London's Hyde Park as well as in the Scottish Highlands. Some of the images were shot on Ben Nevis , the tallest mountain in the British isles. The photos show a clean-shaven Clapton with a bouffant, permed hairstyle. By the time of the album's release in November, however, he was letting his hair grow out straight and had grown a moustache. The front cover consists of a psychedelic collage with the title centred and band name below, surrounded by a floral arrangement.
Martin Sharp was attempting to capture the sound of the music in the cover, which he describes as a "warm fluorescent sound": . I got hold of a publicity shot and cut it up, along with cutouts from various books, laid the pieces out and stuck them together as a collage on a inch square. I did some drawing outlines, and then painted all over it with fluorescent inks and paints of the time. I really wanted to capture that warm, electric sound of their music in the colours and expression of the cover.
On my way to England, I'd gone to Cambodia. And in one of the towns I visited, there were these amazing sculptures with faces on each side, and huge trees growing out on top… Over the years, these great trees had taken root and grown. I suppose I thought that was a bit like the band: where you could see three faces, and the music coming out of their heads. The cover art was later used for the compilation Those Were the Days.
Disraeli Gears features the group veering away, quite heavily, from their blues roots and indulging in more psychedelic sounds, in particular on tracks such as "Tales of Brave Ulysses", "SWLABR", "World of Pain" and "Dance the Night Away", the last of which features a string guitar the only time the instrument would be used on a Cream recording. The most blues-like tunes on the album are Clapton's arrangement of "Outside Woman Blues", the Bruce-Brown composition "Take it Back" which had been inspired by the contemporary media images of American students burning their draft cards which featured harmonica work by Jack Bruce,  and the opening track "Strange Brew", which was based on a bar blues song called "Lawdy Mama" and features an Albert King guitar solo, copied note for note.
Unlike the previous Fresh Cream , which was vocally dominated by Bruce, the vocals on Disraeli Gears were a more democratic affair. Baker, meanwhile, performs lead vocals on his composition "Blue Condition". All three band members sing together on "Mother's Lament". In contrast to much of the band's other work, Disraeli Gears comprises mainly short, self-contained songs, with none of the improvisation and jamming for which the band was known onstage.
Writing for the BBC , Chris Jones described the album as "a perfect encapsulation of the point where the blues got psychedelic and in turn got heavy".Mar 03, · Suggested by UMG remme ft.
