Ginger Baker’s Airforce

Their self-titled double live album (recorded at the Royal Albert Hall) was recorded in 1970 and featured Steve Winwood, Ric Grech and Chris Wood of Traffic, Harold McNair, Denny Laine, Graham Bond and other notables. Sounds promising, yes?

The chap who wrote the dreary sleeve notes heard “an astonishingly tight performance . . . the extended jams [possessing] a surprising direction and sense of purpose”. You’ll hear a lumpen aimless racket.
