Reaching 75 is a milestone for any working musician but in the case of Ginger Baker it is truly worth celebrating.
To mark this 2014 event, Ginger Baker and his family, have joined forces with PledgeMusic to create and release a career spanning Anthology “A DRUMMER’S TALE” on CD and Vinyl, starting with the track “Wade in the Water” from the Graham Bond Organisation back in the early 60’s, to the 2005 Cream reunion live version of “Toad”. There will also be a very personal limited edition Family Album Picture Book.
In addition we have put together a 75th Birthday celebration concert and exhibition at the Islington Academy London N1 on Saturday May 3rd 2014.- VIP tickets only available here on PledgeMusic.

By teaming up with PledgeMusic, the Baker family is able to offer, direct to the fans, a first listen and look at this collection of tracks, chosen by Ginger, from all the different stages of his long and extraordinary career.
In addition Ginger and Nettie have compiled a very personal Family Album Picture Book of art, artwork, photo’s and other images many of them never seen before.

As you can see from the list on the right, in addition to the album and the book Ginger is not only offering signed copies of “A DRUMMER’S TALE” and the Picture Book, but also signed copies of some of the classic Cream albums, signed copies of Ginger’s Autobiography “Hellraiser” and also signed copies of the award winning DVD documentary “Beware of Mr Baker”.

There will also be a very special “A Drummer’s tale” Gig in the heart of London to celebrate Mr Baker’s 75th year to which Pledgers can get special VIP tickets. These VIP tickets will include a copy of the CD, Picture Book and Autobiography as well as an invitation to a special pre-show picture exhibition.

And as if all that were not enough, there wil be a very special opportunity for all you drummers, we will shortly be announcing drum clinics for fans who want to learn from the master.

This is how it works, you Pledge or promise to buy one of the items shown on the right and your order will go towards reaching the target shown at the top of the page, when this target reaches 100% we will have enough orders to press the button and manufacture and ship all the items.

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’! "
Ginger Baker

Message from Nettie Baker
It is with great pleasure that we can finally offer up this definitive collection of tracks chosen by Mr B and encompassing all the highlights of his long, iconic and illustrious career. With the help of Pledgemusic we are now able to offer all our fans the chance to participate in what is certain to be not only a landmark lifetime anthology of music, but with several exciting spin offs, such as a new book and much more to come, also a fitting accompaniment to Ginger Baker’s 75th Birthday this year!
I know this is something you’ve all been waiting for, so please let’s show our love for my very talented Dad by getting this campaign on the map!
