1 - BAKER'S AIR FORCE, GINGER
- DO WHAT YOU LIKE - (CD)
re-press !!!After Ginger Baker wrote music history with Cream and Clapton broke up the successor band Blind Faith after only one LP and aU.S. stadium tour, Baker had the financial backing to set off on his first solo project. 'Ginger Baker's Air Force' began in 1970. It was Ginger's idea to mix the music of his African roots with popular Western music. It was to become the first 'World Music' band of music history, long before this music category even existed. The last tour began on January 29, 1971 in Leeds and the next day Air Force played in the 'Lyceum' in London, where the long awaited meeting between the two great drummers Elvin Jones & Ginger Baker took place. After Air Force had played for a half hour, Elvin came on stage and played 'Aiko Biaye' with Baker. 'Do What You Like' followed, during which Ginger and Elvin delivered a drum battle of the highest quality. After the concert Elvin commented:"Those were great moments. Moments that I will remember my entire life." On February 20, 1971, Air Force gave its last concert inEngland. Ginger Baker's Air Force had become music history after just 14 months.
