JDIZZY's 365 # 139: Anyone For Tennis

Anyone For Tennis - Cream (1968)

You don't expect this from the gods of the power trio that are The Cream. You really don't expect it to have been written and sung by the guitar king Eric Clapton. It is against type for both the band and the artist, which I think is why I like it so much. It has a rambling, light psychedelic feel that I have found intriguing since I first heard it as a child on my father's copy of Crossroads. In fact, this may be the reason I am obsessed with English Psychedelia and Toy Town from the same period to this day. All thanks to the grandaddy of all box sets! Thank you repackaging geniuses at the record labels( if there are any of you left!)!
