Fresh Cream is Cream's December 1966 debut album. It was the first LP release of producer Robert Stigwood's new "Independent" Reaction Records label. It reached number 6 in the UK in February 1967 and number 39 in the US in August 1968. The British version omitted "I Feel Free" (then their current single), while the US version contained it, though it dropped "Spoonful". The CD re-issue of 2000 preserves both songs in the album's running order.

In 2003, the album was ranked number 101 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
