The resulting album, The Howlin' Wolf Album , with its "comically bombastic" arrangements and instrumentation, was a musical and commercial failure. They were part of a trend in the mids by rock artists to record a Willie Dixon song for their debut albums. In an album review for AllMusic , Stephen Thomas Erlewine described Cream's rendition as "where the swirling instrumental interplay, echo, fuzz tones, and overwhelming volume constitute true psychedelic music, and also points strongly toward the guitar worship of heavy metal.
Atco Records released the song in the US later in as a two-sided single with some pressings misspelled as "Spoonfull" , but it failed to reach the Billboard Hot record chart. Cream frequently played "Spoonful" in concert, and the song evolved beyond the blues-rock form of the recording into a vehicle for extended improvised soloing influenced by the San Francisco music scene of the late s. One such rendering, lasting nearly seventeen minutes, is included on their album Wheels of Fire.
Although the album notes indicate "Live at the Fillmore", "Spoonful" was actually recorded at the Winterland Ballroom. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Namespaces Article Talk.

The critics for Billboard magazine noted mostly the production work, besides the compilations track listing stating: "Compiler Levenson has unearthed some superb rarities for the set, and Anthony DeCurtis contributes intelligent annotation. Classy package and bounty of unheard material will attract Slowhand's legion of fans". And it's easy to see why. Crossroads manages to sum up Clapton's career succinctly and thoroughly, touching upon all of his hits and adding a bevy of first-rate unreleased material most notably selections from the scrapped second Derek and the Dominos album.
Although not all of his greatest performances are included on the set — none of his work as a session musician or guest artist is included, for instance — every truly essential item he recorded is present on these four discs. No other Clapton album accurately explains why the guitarist was so influential, or demonstrates exactly what he accomplished.
