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". In , the album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. CD's by jdbernitt. Rob Halford: the 10 records that changed my life by rasmusnordling.
