Universal Music Canada has announced a brand new 4CD box set ‘Goodbye Tour – Live 1968.’ Slated for release on February 7, 2020, it has three complete U.S. concerts recorded in October 1968 at the Oakland Coliseum, Los Angeles Forum and San Diego Sports Arena plus Cream's farewell U.K. performance from November 26, 1968 at London's Royal Albert Hall.  ‘Goodbye Tour – Live 1968’ has a total of 36 tracks, of which 19 are previously unreleased. A further 10 - from the Royal Albert Hall - have only ever been available on DVD. The complete track list is below. On its original release in February 1969, 'Goodbye' combined live performances with a handful of studio recordings. It reached the Number 1 slot in the U.K. and Number 2 on the U.S. Billboard chart. The original release's live tracks were recorded at the Los Angeles Forum. Speaking of the band's performances in a press release announcing the set, Eric Clapton said, "Cream was a shambling circus of diverse personalities who happened to find that catalyst together…any one of us could have played unaccompanied for a good length of time. So you put the three of us together in front of an audience willing to dig it limitlessly, we could have gone on forever…and we did…just going for the moon every time we played.” ‘Goodbye Tour – Live 1968.’ was produced by Bill Levenson. The Oakland, Los Angeles and San Diego concerts were mastered from the original 1968 analog mix reels by Kevin Reeves at Universal Mastering, Nashville, TN. The London concert was mastered from the original 1968 analog transfer reels by Jason NeSmith at Chase Park Transduction, Athens, GA. Rolling Stone magazine’s David Fricke wrote the liner notes for the book included in the set.  Pre-Order at free 12 x 12 art print limited to initial orders only CREAM: GOODBYE TOUR - LIVE 1968 TRACK LIST All tracks previously unreleased, except * DISC ONE: Oakland Coliseum (October 4, 1968)01.
