Jack Bruce, one of the greats in the annals of Rock and Roll, gave a lot of music via the many bands that he played with. In addition, Jack Bruce recorded solo albums as well. His best known stop was Cream, the Clapton/Bruce/Baker supergroup that left behind enough classics to keep us happy.
On October 16, Republic Records will assemble a 2CD set that highlights several periods of Jack Bruce’s stops that include Cream, BBM (Bruce/Baker/Moore), and his solo works. The 2CD set is being called Sunshine Of Your Love – A Life In Music.

Jack Bruce was a music colossus with a restless musical spirit. His 50-year career saw him work with a wide range of collaborators, across many genres. Jack first came to prominence as the main songwriter and vocalist for the legendary supergroup Cream, a trio that also included Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker. In two short years Cream sold 33 million albums and enjoyed hits written by Jack Bruce and lyricist Pete Brown such as “I Feel Free”, “Sunshine of Your Love” (also in collaboration with Eric Clapton), “White Room” and many more. His virtuosity on the bass guitar set the standard by which other musicians would be judged.

With Cream’s demise, Jack continued on his own musical journey, recording a series of critically acclaimed albums for Polydor Records beginning with Songs for a Tailor in 1969. Jack was a highly versatile artist who refused to be tied to one music style, his work spanned a wide range of genres and he excelled at them all. With Jack’s passing in October 2014 the world of music lost one of its true greats.
