WHAT's NEW

What's new on this web page?

If you see the date changing on this page, without an announcement in this section, it is probably something like fixing minor coding problems, spelling errors, minor layout changes, new page on this site (so I changed bottom index), ... Any major changes to this page, will be announced here.

January 25, 2009. I just received my copy of Baker Gurvitz Army - Live In Derby '75. I have entered the details, but still need to scan in the cover.

October 31, 2008. I just received my copy of Baker Gurvitz Army - Still Alive a 2 CD 1 DVD set of a live performance. There are no details of the date or location of the live performance, so after I have a chance to watch the DVD, I will update this web site.

April 10, 2008. You can now listen to streaming free music from this band as well as others at Wolfgangs Vault.

April 27, 2007. Paul Gurvitz (of the Baker Gurvitz Army) just contacted me. He is interested in getting a copy of the BBC radio sessions (January 15, 1975) he played on. If you can help, please contact Chrome Oxide. Thank you.

July 18, 2005. I just noticed that the ezBoard message board that I had set up for this web site had been deleted. Since restoration of the deleted conference is only available to subscribers to their service, and since the activity was relatively light, I not planning on looking for another message board. If you do think a message board is worth while, or you have a message board that you like, let me know and I may promote it here. As always you can contact me here.

December 31, 1999. I started creating this page. :-)

BAKER GURVITZ ARMY
INTRO:
[Top (page index)] [Up] [Down] [Bottom (site index)]

The Baker Gurvitz Army was started in England (?) in October 1974. For all those folks who had been wondering if/when Ginger Baker would return to a rock style drumming/music similar to what he had been doing with Cream and Blind Faith, this was the answer. Ginger Baker joined together with Adrian Gurvirtz (Adrian Curtis) and Paul Gurvitz (Paul Curtis) for his return to rock. The band also included various keyboard players and a vocalist. Unfortunately, the band only lasted three years, and only produced three albums.

Adrian Gurvirtz (Adrian Curtis) and Paul Gurvitz (Paul Curtis) have performed in other bands (Gun, Three Man Army, ...) (both before and after), as well as doing a lot of session work for other bands and producers.

For those interested in some other rock recordings that Ginger Baker has participated in, you might want to check out:
Baker, Bruce, Moore (BBM) 1994 Around The Next Dream
Masters Of Reality 1992 Sunrise On The Sufferbus
among others.

Ginger Baker has also recorded a number of jazz, world music, ... CDs under various names, including: Ginger Baker's Airforce, Ginger Baker & Friends, Ginger Baker & Band, Ginger Baker & African Airforce, Ginger Baker Trio, ....

Comments and corrections would be appreciated.

And of course, any audio-video-print additions to my collection would be appreciated.

I am also interested in getting wider exposure for this site. So links from your site to mine would be appreciated. And if you know of any sites that allow/encourage submission, I would also appreciate knowing about them as well.

Do you have any articles, books, albums, tapes, CDs, ... on this band that you would like reviewed and / or integrated into this page?

Do you have any other band that you would like to see a page for on this site?

December 10, 2002.
Back in October 1999 I put up links to CD-Now so that visitors could easily link to the related band pages and instantly see which items were still in print/available for purchase. CD-Now no longer has that option. For the moment I am putting in Amazon.com search boxes. Amazon.com doesn't easily allow for links to individual band pages in the same way that CD-Now used to. So, instead of me being able to create direct links, I have put up the Amazon.com search box instead. So you can still go to a page with the various bands products, buy you now need to go through a search box.

As always, let me know what you think.
