Ginger Baker's Air Force ?2 (CD)
Given Ginger Baker's first post-Cream endeavor was intended to be a short-term project, the fact Ginger Baker's Air Force managed to release a live album was a surprise. The fact the band survived long enough to record a studio album is almost a miracle. Unlike the first Ginger Baker's Air Force album. "Ginger Baker's Air Force 2" was a studio album. The big names that studded the debut album (Eric Clapton, Ric Grech, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, etc.), were all gone by the time the band went into the record studio. In fact, Baker and singer/keyboardist Graham Bond were the only holdovers from the first line-up.. Unlike the double album debut which suffered from a bad case of jam-itis, song-for-song the sophomore album was more focused and actually more enjoyable than the debut. What you got was an off amalgamation of different genres including blues, jazz, pop, rock, and some of Baker's growing interest in world music - the results frequently mashed up in one title. For hardcore Baker fans, other than one extended drums solo on 'Toady', Baker seemed content to serve as band manager and director, steering things from behind the scenes. Yeah, with 'Toady' clocked in at over nine minutes there were a couple of tracks that were way too long, but for the most part this was surprisingly enjoyable.
