What a cover! Ginger Baker and the illustrious Gurvitz brothers ride with the seven horsemen of the apocalypse! If you love drumming you'll love this CD......The ex-Cream percussionist armed with his paradiddles and syncopated style rides in from the plains of Africa, fresh from the Dakar Rally with an exhaustive lesson on how to play the congas. There's great guitar, vocals and lyrics from Paul and Adrian Gurvitz about his African experience.......and being in love. At least one out of two ain't bad. For anyone who hates drum solos then Memory Lane is the one to be avoided, Help Me is a showcase for Ginger's drumming but my favourite is Mad Jack about driving through African desert villages. The band's style is expansive and Adrian (Going to write me a classic, going to write it in my attic) Gurvitz is a truly brilliant rock guitarist. Strangely for the seventies, this album has had plenty of hard work put into it and the tracks aren't idle self indulgent slices of rock, they're honest committed complex progressive tunes with memorable melodies you'll be humming. This album is for you if you like people who can play their instruments in fairly complex songs, it sounds fresh and enthusiastic................

I agree with the previous reviewer. I bought this on vinyl, when it was first released, and the music still sounds great today.
Baker teamed up with the remains of the late-Sixties band 'Gun' (the Gurvitz brothers) to form this band. Gun's hit was 'Race with the Devil', and that's where this stuff's coming from, it's nothing like the (awful) 'Gonna Write a Classic' single...thank goodness. And this was by far the best work that Ginger did since leaving Cream; Blind Faith was a waste of talent, and his Airforce was a bit of a monstrosity, except for the fact that the mighty Graham Bond was in it...
Ginger's drumming is very effective indeed on this album, it's pretty constrained and the recording is absolutely not a sort of 'showcase' for a load of fancy technical drum work (though there is a solo, naturally enough with Mr Baker).
Ginger's vocal work is quite under-rated, there's far more to the man than meets the eye. And his sense of humour is very good indeed...and who else would propose driving his Jensen Interceptor FF four-wheel-drive supercar from Lewisham in South London across the Sahara Desert, at about six miles to the gallon?
It's the best of the three albums they recorded, and I strongly recommend it.

I bought this album when it was first released, being a fan of Cream and the Gurvitz brothers (from Gun and Three Man Army days). I was just browsing on Amazon and could not believe my eyes when I saw that the release date of this Esoteric remastered CD was the actual day I was browsing (Michael Chapman's 'Fully Qualified Survivor' re-released the same day - wonderful!). The music is so varied and well played and I have never understood why they did not receive more general recognition at the time. It is not as if they were a prog band and competing with e.g. Yes, Genesis etc. Anyway, so good to play it again today in the car. Favourite tracks are still Mad Jack (shades of Cream's Pressed Rat and Warthog)and so well constructed with the actual sound of Ginger's car! - but it actually works for me; Help Me, the opener is excellent with very expert and together playing from all - a feature throughout the album; Memory Lane with a solo by Ginger and showing his polyrhythmic style to great effect and a bonus of a live version of this track at the end. One of the great bands that never received their due regard at the time.

I used to have this recording on LP many years ago but could never find it on CD much to my disappointment after searching everywhere for it. I finally managed to discover it on Amazon a short while ago so immediately purchased it, when it arrived I played it three times back to back after not hearing it for about 35 years and found it was better than I had remembered!
Most of the album is medium to up tempo such as Help Me, Love Is, Memory Lane and Mad Jack. I Wanna Live Again is a very slow number which I don't really feel fits in with the rest of the album, it's okay but to me stands out like a soar thumb and really should be somewhere else. 4 Phil is a very slow tasty blues number which gives the listener a chance to relax after hearing Mad Jack. The next song is Since Beginning which again is quite slow but in my opinion isn't up to the same standard as the rest of the album.
The first song on this wonderful CD is called Help Me and really 'cooks' - no nonsense here! Love Is, shows Ginger Baker very busy with plenty of tight Hi-Hat stabs along with being very active on the toms and is probably my favourite on the album although it's very difficult to decide as this album is so good. The third song, Memory Lane is once again a number where Baker is very busy and there's a great drum solo a short way in from the start, I find this very inspirational being a drummer myself.
Adrian Gurvitz is fantastic on this recording with a wonderful raunchy and sometimes rather squeaky tone, it's mainly because of him and Ginger Baker that I bought the album in the first place!
