Jan Warren… Yeah, love Cream!

Dave Nattress… Cream,  never heard of this, great band from my time way back in Bexhill Down Secondary Modern, got all their stuff – vinyl and CD and Steve Wright on R2 played the wonderful “White Room” this afternoon, followed by “All along the Watchtower” by Mr Hendrix of course – didn’t catch any more but think it was a reader’s top 5 tracks or something like.

Alex Wallace… Hey, I found a postcard signed by the band, in my dad’s stuff on the back it says cream addicts anonymous and the address.

Robert Searle… Seen them three times,at their first gig at the Marquee, and twice at the Saville Theatre.

Jim Wolfeb… Looking through my old memorabilia I found some newsletters from Cream Addicts Anonymous. Are these worth anything?
