Very special highlights collection of Jack Bruce’s work will be available this autumn with the release of Sunshine of Your Love: A Life in Music. The career spanning 35-track 2CD anthology will feature the greatest works from the legendary musician, composer and bass virtuoso.
The anthology celebrates the highlights of Jack Bruce’s career and covers both his work with Cream and much more beyond, including his last album, the critically acclaimed Silver Rails. Sunshine of Your Love: A Life in Music coincides with the sold out tribute concert ‘Sunshine of Your Love’ featuring Ginger Baker, Joss Stone, Phil Manzanera, Ian Anderson, Vernon Reid, Mark King, Hugh Cornwell, Bernie Marsden, Uli Jon Roth and many more.
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.
