Baker Gurvitz Army – The Baker Gurvitz Army

When Cream split up, Ginger Baker briefly joined up with Paul and Adrian Gurvitz (The Gun, Three Man Army). The result was bluesy classic-rockin’ mayhem, and the drumming is brilliant (natch), all of which I love. This debut album is awesome, and my LP copy sounds brilliant.

    I have this and was just talking about it. Ginger is one of my favorite vocalists but never gets the wide appreciation he deserves. (CB thinks he deserves), Books you amaze me. Those drums do sound good.
    Other note. I’ve been doing the ‘Amazing Crowns’ thing. Loving it.

      I think Ginger’s personality and behaviour overshadowed a lot of the genius in his playing so he might get overlooked sometimes. Those of us who know, though, we KNOW! Glad you dig the Amazing (Royal) Crowns! I’ve had that record for ages and it never disappoints.

                Yeah it can get pretty depressing and maddening. Nothing cool about drug/alcohol addiction. I try not to pass to much judgement (we all have made our F..ups). But comes a time to straighten up and fly right. The damage it leaves is brutal. Especially on families. I watched a Chet Baker doc, man was that fricken sad. Maybe it’s the “Baker” name. Anyways Books we have a lot of good things, music being one of them.
