      Imagine how much better your comment would have been had you bothered to note that Mario already did “Beware of Mr. Baker.”

        When I was composing my comment, Mario’s had yet to appear.

        I did, in fact, check to see if anyone had thought to post it. Stercus accidit.

          Given that Mario’s was posted more than 20 minutes earlier, you may need to upgrade from that 1200 baud modem.

    First I heard about it. Another icon gone. RIP G.B.
    We used to do this one in a band i was in…we all picked songs for the set lists… this was one of our drummers picks.

    Music few folks have heard and appreciated . . . Ginger Baker and Tony Allen drum duet at 45:18 . . .

    Couldn’t be a better time to dust off your drum set and let it rip. Might even be good for your composition-but-no-posty-blues-bullshit too.

    Put a wood stove in your outbuilding and build a baby stage next to that baby tractor of yours and get-it-on this winter. You ain’t getting any younger!

    P.S. You can buy a lift for that “MG” ( ; ) of yours and put it above the stage for the winter….Might be good to have a look at the undercarriage yourself anyways.

        Glad you liked it. Worth remembering that people who are flawed (and Graham Bond, and Ginger definitely were) as people can nonetheless produce art. Dick Heckstall-Smith’s book, “Blowing the Blues” is on Amazon, and well worth a read. His take on why musicians got addicted to heroin is something that made me think (for a change).
