Heavy Cream is a compilation album of music recorded by Cream during 1966-68.

Although available in other terriories as well, the album was largely released to address the North American market, in order for Polydor Records to leverage Cream's back catalog; prior to 1972, Polydor had licensed Cream's recordings to Atco/Atlantic Records for North American distribution. Now out of print, Heavy Cream was available as a double album during the years 1972-76, and was briefly reissued by Polydor's affiliated label RSO Records in 1983.

With 22 tracks, Heavy Cream is one of the more comprehensive collections of Cream's work, containing over two-thirds of the band's studio recordings.
