My favorite Cream b-side single. Apparently they made Strange Brew the a-side single because the record company thought it would sell more 45s than Tales of Brave Ulysses, much to the bands dismay.

Didn't know it was a b-side, wow.

It also features one of the first known uses of a wah-wah pedal in a recording. Clapton had heard Jimi Hendrix experimenting with one and he liked the sound.
