Reviews:

''Wheels of Fire'' is the name of a double album recorded by Cream. The release was largely successful, scoring the band a #3 peak in the UK and a #1 in the US, and became the world's first platinum-selling double album.

The album was also released as ''Wheels of Fire (In the Studio)'' and ''Wheels of Fire (Live at the Fillmore)'' as two single albums, released together, with similar cover art except:

In the UK, the studio album was black print on aluminium foil, while the Live at the Fillmore album was a negative image of the studio cover.

In Japan, the studio album was black on gold foil, while the live album was black on aluminium foil.

In Australia, both covers were laminated copies of the Japanese releases (it was never released as a double album in Australia).

In 2003, the album was ranked number 203 on ''Rolling Stone'' magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

The sleeve was designed by Australian pop artist and cartoonist Martin Sharp, who also designed the ''Disraeli Gears'' sleeve, and it won the New York Art Directors Prize for Best Album Design in 1969. - Wikipedia
