Song Of A Baker written by Marriott/Lane is on the Small Faces 1968 album Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake. The Small Faces were Steve Marriott guitar, vocals, Ronnie Lane bass, vocals, Kenny Jones drums, Ian McLagan keyboards, vocals. Soon after the album’s release, Steve Marriott went on to form Humble Pie with Peter Frampton while the other three Small Faces joined forces with Ronnie Wood and Rod Stewart. both from the Jeff Beck Band, and became known as Faces.

I like this Cream track because it has a brilliant and exciting guitar solo, especially the second solo. It is a live recording initially released on the 1968 Wheels Of Fire album. Crossroads is credited to bluesman Robert Johnson who died in 1938, it is sung on this recording by Eric Clapton who is the guitarist and he is backed by Jack Bruce, bass & Ginger Baker, drums.

Released as the B-side of Jumpin’ Jack Flash in 1968, Child Of The Moon is one of the Rolling Stones best songs. It can be found on the More Hot Rocks (Big Hits and Fazed Cookies) CD.
