Baker-Gurvitz Army

Baker-Gurvitz Army
1975 US Original Featuring Ginger Baker. CC. Mastered By Bob Ludwig. “Ginger Baker's Mid-'70s Profile Took Another Unexpected Turn Following Cream's Blues-Rock Blood And Thunder And His Afro-Beat Matchups With Fela Kuti. He Formed This Straight-Ahead Power Trio With The Guitar- And Bass-Playing Brother Team Of Adrian And Paul Gurvitz, Who'd Briefly Lit Up The '60s U.K. Charts As Gun (Of "Race With The Devil" Fame). Such A Step Might Have Seemed Subversively Normal For Baker, But He And The Brothers Had An Undeniable Chemistry; Not Surprisingly, Their Debut Album Is A Self-Assured, Aggressive Affair. "Help Me" And "I Wanna Live Again" Are Punchy And Succinct; So Are The Hard-Driving Instrumentals "Love Is" And Its Funkier Cousin, "Phil 4." The Band Leavens Their Hard-Hitting Delivery With Subtle Orchestration And Piano; The Latter Instrument Works To Haunting Effect On The Introspective "Memory Lane." Naturally, No Ginger Baker Album Could Pass Without Some Drum Solos, But They're Tastefully Done. He's Very Much A Team Player Here And This Album's A Strong, Decisive Statement. If Hard Rock's What You Crave, You Won't Be Disappointed.” Ralph Heibutzki, All Music Guide.
