He was the right match for band leader Chris Goss, whose natural affinity for late 60s and early 70s rock found a perfect foil in Baker, one of the sound's originators.
The follow-up didn't arrive until Sunrise on the Sufferbus was named after the insomnia that kept Baker and Goss awake on the band's tour bus, and, like much of the Masters' work, inspires the kind of hushed reverence usually reserved for the genuine cult classic.
Discipline makes this an ideal soundtrack for spin-dancing in grassy fields and may Masters Of Reality - Sunrise On The Sufferbus (CD why the Mellotron textures recall early King Crimson. Googe plays it supportive, laying rich-toned lines deep at the bottom of the sonic well.
The Obelisk. Ben L. Connor: Terrific choice. It sounds like it could have been recorded in without actually sounding like any album from Jonathan Novajosky: This was a pleasant surprise. The album is kind of "out there" and all over the place at times, but I liked most of the tracks.

Lost somewhere in the maze of grunge and pop at the time. I love this album. Gave me one of my favourite lyric lines. From J. Witchdance: " Now I aint no wiser but I know it's a drag to be alone. Matt Roy: One of the greatest rock'n'roll albums ever in my opinion. The opening track, She Got Mekicks you right in the ass. There is not a weak song on this album.
Stellar recording front to back. Full of hooks and full of talent. And a classic Ginger Baker song, T. Ants In The Kitchen is a song that just gets stuck in your head. VHV and Rabbit One explore a very groovy psychedelic sound. Every song on this album is strong.
This is one of my favourite albums of all time. I got hooked on it when it debuted inand I still listen to it regularly to this day. I highly recommend this recording to anyone that has not heard Masters of Reality.
Michael Baryshnikov: Heard it somewhere 'round Never knew that Ginger Baker participated in it Now I know why. Thank you Ginger!

Robert Baran: Always thought the singer sounded similar to Jack Bruce. This is a great album. I think this is their best. Ginger's drumming on this is one of his best.

James Paris: Love this album Ginger's drumming is great and love his song about tea in the USA. RIP Ginger. Shane Reho: Definitely a great listen. This group sounds like it could've been together for a long time, the interplay between the musicians is that good.
The songs themselves are good, I'd need a few listens more to pick out a few that rise above the pack, but I'll put JB Witchdance up there now, after hearing it a couple times it's my favourite from this album.
Baker sounds as great as ever here, whether it be his drumming any way I could sum that up would be an understatement or his sense of humour how often do you hear a song about making a cup of tea? Overall, this is a good one to jam out to. Julie Plumpton: I have to admit I'd never listened to them before, but what a great album!

I bought the MOR blue garden album when it came out and thought it was great. I then lost track of MOR for a long time. I just finished listening to Cream's 4 cd box set when out of the blue, a hidden thought came to me that Ginger Baker played on an album with MOR. After listening to Amazon song samples, I bought a copy immediately, and I just finished my very first listen.
What a fun album! It's only 42 minutes in length comprising of 14 songs but it is very eclectic. Ginger was truly a master drummer in the 60's. Unfortunately, the sound quality of the Cream music could have been much better, especially Ginger's drumming.
Here he is, larger than life and MOR made an album where Masters Of Reality - Sunrise On The Sufferbus (CD can hear his drumming without any sacrifices to the music. Ginger even does satire in T. A and it sounds so cool! MOR is about Chris Goss and he has a sweet, melodic voice that makes you want to sing along. The only negatives I have is that this album isn't as heavy as the blue garden and I wish that some songs would have gotten stretched out a little bit more so you can savor them.
The longest song is just over 4 minutes and there is some obvious filler. Other than that, I enjoyed this very much. Ginger didn't get royalties from Cream, his own band. I'm humbled to have seen Beware of Mr. Baker to snap me back into reality he's the best drummer of our time. He went off the radar for a lot of us.
This album proves everything or any question of his drumming you could ever want to ask especially doubting his brilliant timing. Yeah, I'm a big Cream fan. And most of the trio stuff those individual guys did after Cream's break-up including the Cream reunion had its share of pleasures and disappointments.
But this CD - oh man - this is sheer perfection from beginning to end. First of all, Baker has never been better. Crisp, driving, swinging - always propelling the band forward without overwhelming the song or the other musicians. Rock drumming does not get better than Ginger on this album - and that includes anything Cream did in the studio. The songs are very well written - beautiful, melodious, and casual. Chris's vocal is a showcase of range and empathy - and everybody just seems to be so in the groove and having a great time.
It's damned near brilliant. I might have never discovered this great record if I had not been flipping through TV channels one afternoon with my roommate and saw three guys doing an acoustic jam on some obscure TV talk show. My friend said, "check the drummer out. Pretty amazing stuff. Then he found the CD in a store and we both proceeded to wear the disc out for the next five years or so. We parted ways amicably and he took his CD with him. I hadn't heard it in almost a decade when I found it on Amazon and ordered it immediately.
Still sounds as good as it did 15 years ago and even sounds great without weed! One of the best rock albums ever! My iPod just got a little cooler. One person found this helpful. This album took me by surprise. I bought it because I heard "T. Masters Of Reality - Sunrise On The Sufferbus (CD and fell in love with it.
I like the inclusion of the little song segments and the fact that the songs hit hard and fast. A lot of fun. I live in the US and this is an import purchase for me. I'm glad I made the investment. Great music none the less. After watching the documentary Beware of Mr. Baker I wanted to hear the contemporary work of Ginger. I highly recommend both the documentary and this CD. One of the best drummers ever. See all reviews from the United States.
