Ginger Baker - Live In Offenbach

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.
