I saw him at The Flamingo (I believe he stood in with Georgie Fame, or may have been Phil Seaman) and later at Kooks Kleek with Graham Bond Organisation. Memory is not what it was! Strangely I preferred Jon Hiseman on drums when he played with GBO. Learned his craft from Phil Seaman, one of the best jazz drummers from the early sixties. Sadly, both dogged by heroin addiction.
    Fast forward to Cream and Blind Faith, seeing both of the groups(bands) for free at Hyde Park about 1968/9. Those Were The Days :) ......Last caught up with Baker at a Drummers Workshop in Rye, England, where he took questions from the audience, in between demonstrations of playing crazy drum polyrythms. I showed him my pressing of SWLABR purchased in 1967 -She Was Like A Bearded Rainbow (a.k.a. She Walked Like A Bearded Rainbow), which is bizarrely printed on both sides with no A side, which he duly signed for me on both sides! The A side, should have been printed Sunshine Of Your Love, according to other pressings I've seen.
