Released: July 1968

Like many Cream songs, 'White Room' was written by bassist and vocalist Jack Bruce with the English poet Pete Brown. It was the lead single from the blues-rock supergroup's third album Wheels Of Fire and sees them veering towards more expansive psychedelia, with Eric Clapton's wah-wah guitar chattering away in the verses. It's since been covered by The Vines and speed-metallers Helloween.
