Listen free to Cream – Wheels Of Fire (White Room, Sitting On Top Of The World and more). Wheels of Fire is the name of a double album recorded by Cream. The release was largely successful, scoring the band a peak in the UK and a in the US, and became the world's first platinum-selling double album. If Disraeli Gears was the album where Cream came into their own, its successor, Wheels of Fire, finds the trio in full fight, capturing every side of their multi-faceted personality, even hinting at the internal pressures that soon would tear the band asunder.

Wheels of Fire' climbed to No. 1, making it Cream's only chart-topping album. White Room' and 'Crossroads' were both released as singles, with the former making it all the way to No. 6 ('Sunshine of Your Love,' the band's only other Top 10 song, reached No. 5). But the album's legacy stretches further than that. Things were pretty much falling apart for the contentious group by this point, so when they entered the studio for their fourth and final album the following year, the seams were unraveling.
