General Comment One of the themes in stories about Ulysses is that even though he spent years struggling to return home, once he reaches it he is restless and can't be satisfied there, because he has "touched the distant sands" of foreign lands and has learned to live for adventure.
For example, in the poem "Ulysses" by Tennyson So I think this song can be interpreted kind of that way. It's about someone who travels to a foreign exotic place and falls in love with both the land and a girl who represents the place in a way. Now that he has met her, he knows that he can never be satisfied without her -- "you know you cannot leave her for you touched the distant sands. And he probably can't stay at the "distant beaches" for the same reason -- not only does he not quite belong there, but part of its magic for him is probably the temporary nature of his stay.
He is destined to move on, but now he is doomed to be dissatisfied wherever he goes. While he is traveling, he misses his homeland where he really belongs, but once he returns, he is restless for adventure and can't forget the girl that he met, who is preserved in memory as perfect, whether she really is or not -- so what he misses may or may not even exist.
There was an error. That's exactly how I interpret this song General Comment allow me to correct you marcd - the lyrics were not written by Eric Clapton. They were written by Martin Sharp. He was an australian poet Clapton met in a club called The Speakeasy. He told Clapton that he'd written a poem and Clapton told him that he needed a lyric for a song.
Always liked the sound. The tray art and disc merely states the compilation creation date which was The first CD version was either or It was once thought due to the series catalog number than a RSO - Polydor "Red Face" exists but given the year it was released on CD and the fact none in 3 decades have shown to be extant the first CD pressing is the "silver face" Polydor WG for US with 01 matrix.
The US is the same mastering. Please note there is West Germany pressing for Europe that as I remember does not have the Drake mastering. Given these kudos' from Mr Hoffman expect the price of this disc to temporarily go up in price on the internet for the short term.
It was already too high in the Amazon Marketplace, as I checked within 4 minutes of Steve's post. As said above, this isn't the first time it's been recommended in this forum. Location: Wisconsin. I have this disc. Location: 8 miles West of the White House. I just bought one for 26 cents on Amazon, hope it's the right one. And will look at the local music store CD Cellar. But I have a comp very best of with 20 cuts using the "unique new Apogee UV22 process.Cream was never a huge favorite but wanted to add the LP for my daughters collection. I should have heeded previous feedback as the sound quality of this album is really bad by todays standards. Sounds more like a mono sound over an old am radio/5(37).
