Royal Albert Hall London May 2-3-5-6, 2005 is a live album by the English rock band Cream, recorded at the Royal Albert Hall in 2005 during the band's reunion tour. As the title implies, the recording includes songs from their four reunion shows on 2, 3, 5, and 6 May 2005.
Within five months of these performances, this collection of recordings was released as separate double Compact Disc and double DVD sets. Two months later in December, a triple LP set was also released, containing tracks identical to the CD set. A Blu-ray version also exists.
In his review for Allmusic, Stephen Thomas Erlewine said that the shows at the Royal Albert Hall did not live up to Cream's concerts in the past, including their performance for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which is not necessarily all because of their age, although some of it was, but because they have not been together in a while.J. D. Considine spoke much more highly of the shows because Cream were not as fixated with psychedelic jam sessions and sounded better than before.
Although the title mentions all four dates Cream played in May 2005, these releases contain no material recorded on the first night, 2 May, except for a brief clip shown on the DVD of Clapton speaking to the crowd.
The recording of "Sitting On Top of the World", the alternate takes of "We're Going Wrong" and "Sunshine of Your Love" and the interviews are exclusive to the DVD set. All other tracks are identical to the CD release.
