Live in Offenbach 1970

About this release

 Ginger Baker is probably best known as the drummer with

British rock band Cream and also Blind Faith. Despite being

hailed as The Greatest Rock Drummer he actually dislikes

the title preferring to proclaim himself a "jazz drummer".

Following his tenure with a number of jazz bands in the late

fifties and early sixties his career really began when he

joined the Graham Bond Organisation. From here he formed

Cream along with fellow Bond Organisation bassist Jack

Bruce and Eric Clapton guitarist with John Mayall's

Bluesbreakers. Cream were an instant hit particularly in

America were they sealed their reputation with extensive

touring and the release of the albums Fresh Cream, Disraeli

Gears and Wheels of Fire. Following the split with Cream

Ginger formed Blind Faith along with Eric Clapton Steve

Winwood and Ric Grech. Once again the band enjoyed

massive success in America and played one massively

attended open air gig in London's Hyde Park in June 1969.

Following this gig the band released their only studio album

the self titled Blind Faith.

Further collaborations with Hawkwind, The Masters of

Reality and a reunion with former Cream band mate Jack

Bruce in Baker Bruce and Moore were to keep Ginger's

name in the forefront of rock before Cream reunited in

May 2005 for a successful string of dates in London at the

Royal Albert Hall and New York at Madison Square Garden.

Ginger has also recorded a number of well received jazz

albums with his own jazz trio.

The recordings featured in the Official Ginger Baker Bootleg

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

sanctioned by Ginger Baker.
