Message from Ginger Baker

“’Stand by your beds everyone! its been over thirty years since the RSO launched my last ‘The Best of Ginger Baker’ anthology album WITHOUT consulting me about the content! This time I’m in charge, with no label and with the help and support of Pledge Music I am ready to release “A Drummer’s Tale” and the events that inspired these personally chosen tracks from my long career. There will also be a book full of very rare family owned photos and memorabilia. With PledgeMusic the plan is to give you, the fans, something very exclusive. I know you’ll enjoy it, Thanks for your support throughout the years & remember ’don’t cheer, throw money’! "
