About this release

The Baker Gurvitz Army came into existence when former

Gun and Three man Army members Paul and Adrian Gurvitz

joined forces with legendary drummer Ginger Baker in 1974.

The Baker Gurvitz Army was the first real musical project for

Ginger Baker since the short-lived band Salt in 1972 and

Ginger Baker's Airforce some two years prior to that. The

band released their first album the self titled Baker Gurvitz

Army in late 1974 and the album sold well enough to break

in to the American charts. The band went on to record two

further studio albums including Elysian Encounter in 1975

and Hearts On Fire in 1976.The band also featured vocalist

Snips who had previously been with British band Sharks and

keyboardist Peter Lemer formerly of Barbara Thompson's

Paraphernalia and Seventh Wave

This live recording which forms part of the Official Ginger

Baker Bootleg Series was recorded in Milan on the 23rd of

March 1976 during the tour to promote what would turn out

to be the bands final studio album Hearts On Fire. The set

list at this time reflecting the desire to promote the album

included four tracks from the album including Hearts On Fire,

Night People, Thirsty For The Blues and neon Lights. There

are also two tracks from Elysian Encounter (People and

Time) and two from the bands self titled debut (Inside Of

me and Memory Lane) Interestingly enough at this point

in the bands career they elected to include two Cream

songs in the set and both Sunshine Of Your Love and

White Room are also included here.

The recordings featured in the Official Ginger Baker Bootleg

Series are sure to become collector's items and are all

sanctioned by Ginger Baker.
