Notes: After the conclusion of the Cream and Blind Faith years Ginger was to be found creating music under various military guises. From the Air Force to this outing with the Army Ginger draws on his background in jazz and rock and thunders along as one of the few drummers in the business to really become a true band leader and not just another member of the group. Often emulated, but rarely equaled Ginger can play some fine drums to say the least. The gatefold cover brings us some sort of alien meeting place. Maybe a little gambling going on in the foreground as notes are taken and plans discussed.
