Editorial Reviews

Two CD live archive release from the British drumming legend. This recording dates from a concert performance in Munich in 1972 and was the first musical outing in Europe for Ginger alongside Salt. The show was billed as Ginger Baker and Salt "Africa Now" Invites Drum Battle. The show was filmed for German television and broadcast shortly after and repeated a year later in 1973. The line up for this performance was Ginger Baker : drums, Steve Gregory: tenor sax, flute, Bud Beadle: saxes, Tunde Koboje: bass, Berkley Jones: guitar, Laolu Akins: african drums, Kehinde Lijadu: vocals, Taiwo Lijadu: vocals, and special guest: Art Blakey: drums.

I have been a fan of Ginger Baker since Cream, but this album is the first I have heard of his band of English and African musicians, Salt. Baker's autobiography titles one chapter with the band name, but gives no details.

Ginger Baker had been pursuing African rhythms since meeting his hero Phil Seamen in the 1960s, and started down the African road in earnest with his group Air Force, formed in 1970. Baker then moved to Nigeria in the early 1970s to set up a recording studio in Lagos and work with Fela Kuti. There was a large gap in his recorded output between Air Force (1970) and the Baker Gurvitz Army (1974), with his only appearance being Fela Live (1971) which, by the way, contains a track recorded in Berlin in 1978 with Fela and the great Tony Allen (Fela's wonderful drummer). As an aside, I am guessing that the current Ginger Baker and African Friends Berlin 1978 came from the same sessions.

Ginger Baker and Salt finds Baker and his band deep into African rhythms, riffs and vocals, with great sax and guitar solo work to flesh it out. The musicians are first rate and their performance is fiery. The sound quality is also quite good. According to the liner notes, the concert was filmed for German television, but the video tapes were lost. A pity, but thankfully we have the audio of this great concert.

If you want to hear Baker at his best, buy this album...

This recording is a missing link, so to speak. I will assume that the reader is at least somewhat familiar with Ginger Baker. This is not Cream, Blind Faith, Air Force or anything else which made the tabloids. It's closest comparison is with the Fela Kuti recordings, but it's not that either. What is prominent for me is that Ginger is a jazz percussionist, as he tried to tell everyone way back then, but they wouldn't listen and wanted to hear him rock. The recording does not suffer from being bootlegged within the crowd, all you hear is the music. The only audience interference is at the end of songs, where it is appropriate for a live recording. As a bottleg recovery, it is wonderful. It had to be recovered, and they did it. It is not really presented well or correctly by the crew in terms of listing what is on the two discs, but we should not hold that against anyone since the second disc has three, not two tracks! Some riddles may arise while listening as to who is on stage when, but with sincere listening, it becomes clear. I suggest you just relax and let it fill your environment rather than delve into it with certain expectations. Headphones and a stereo turned up to 11 may be called for the real thrill seeker, lol.
Do enjoy. Any Ginger Baker fan will greatly appreciate not only his talent, but his comraderie and love of experiment which really does need to be called jazz.

Probably the best of the bootleg series, and my favorite of what is available in ginger baker's catalog, don the headphones and you will likely agree.

Great sound quality for a live "boot" recording, this collection shows Ginger in, perhaps, his finest form as a drummer. The African music and female vocals are a bit unconventional, just listen to the drums and you will be completely satisfied.
