Most of Disraeli Gears
was recorded in just three days during the second week of May 1967 at Atlantic Studios in New York (the band had to return to England because their work visas were expiring). The album didn't come out until November, but "Tales Of Brave Ulysses" was used as the B-side of "Strange Brew
," which was issued in June. "Ulysses" fit the soundtrack to the Summer of Love and became one of Cream's best-known songs. It got lots of airplay on Album Oriented Rock (AOL) radio stations, as well as on some of the more adventurous Classic Rock stations.
