Never much a fan of Clapton or Bruce, if you want to hear an AWESOME album, buy the double LP Ginger Baker's AIR FORCE. On a quality phonographic system, it sounds like Baker is right in the room with you! The album rocks from beginning to end!

The album is as wild as the cover suggests; outrageous, inventive, flamboyant and heavy.

There was a quote he said that cracked me up, and I'm paraphrasing because I can't remember it verbatim, but it sums him up.

Interviewer: "You guys were great tonight."
Baker: "We're great every fucking night."

I believe it was also the first left-handed gatefold LP cover. I've still got my copy from 1970.
