Fleetwood Mac

He got the 6th place in the British charts, suggesting that the British blues became popular enough among youth. Eric Clapton himself has already quit 'Bluesbreakers', without waiting for the release of this superb album. The year before, in the 1965th, Eric left the 'Yardbirds', being dissatisfied with the direction chosen by the group ('Yardbirds' in fact, by the time gradually began to move away from the rhythm & blues). But now, Clapton decided to organize a traditional blues trio in the Chicago style. Oddly enough, of this venture failed, and the dream of leadership in the group disappeared after the first rehearsal group. So there was one of the best (if not the best) progressive blues-rock bands CREAM.

Despite the constant creative differences, Jack Bruce, Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker to create great music. On the first album, 'Fresh Cream' (1966), they gave us a great heavy blues, who immediately took up the many different groups. But few people know that their long improvisations, 'Cream' virtually invented hard rock. Already on their next record, 'Disraeli Gears' (1967), in music, 'Cream' appeared psychedelia: this way, with each new work increased their level of skill, and it is possible to call a progressive style of blues. Despite the fact that the 'Cream' existed only two and a half years, they already released four excellent albums, in no way inferior to one another. Effect of 'Cream' on many other artists is really huge. At the same time great groups have been formed 'Fleetwood Mac' and 'Ten Years After', they came close to blues and hard rock have a huge commercial success.

Producers use many different sound sources for bass line – from the continuous and repetitive electronically-generated lines, mixed to a synthesizer, for example, the Roland TB-303, to studio recordings or samples of live electronic bass guitar, or simply filtered out the low frequencies of samples from classic funk tracks. Electronic sounds and samples of recordings of jazz, blues and synth pop are often added to the basis of a shock or a bass line. House tracks may also include disco or soul music styles, the choir and other tools. Techno and trance developing together with house, have the same structure bits, but they usually shy away from the influence of 'black' and Latin music and lots of sounds and effects.
