Cradle to Grave in print
on 1 June 2017
I read write ups of this book in 2013 and saw it was cheap so bought it to read,
Amazon's 2nd hand books can be real bargains £2.81 hardback and great condition .
I am not a fan Mr Baker as a rule but books about the 70's music scene interest me and I had heard in the early 70's he was an ELP fan so thought it might be interesting. I took this book on holiday to read and couldn't put it down it was hilarious whether it was all true I am not sure but if it was he has lead a charmed life and had a happy upbringing. His career seems to have come about by pure chance as it seems some of the best do. Recently turned into the BBC 2 comedy with Peter Kay the book is even funnier and carries on to beyond school and his days working in a record shop where he made the most of his opportunities
