Beware of Mr. Baker Contest

Following up on an earlier post Beware of Mr. Baker from Aris at SnagFilms, a New York-based film distributor and new to the CVR blog.  I have one download of the movie and a signed poster to give to the winner.  So the 20th email with the words "Beware of Mr. Baker Contest" in the subject line will be declared the winnerLimit one email entry per person

'Beware of Mr. Baker' is a vivid portrait of a rock icon, including the good, the bad and the over the top lifestyle of one of rock’s legendary wild men.

At home with rock ‘n’ roll monster Ginger Baker, Cream’s legendary scarlet-manned, hell-raising drummer. This no-holds-barred, sad, and hilarious portrait of the man referred to as rock’s first great drummer (and perhaps still its best) lets him tell his own story like only he can.

Eric Clapton, Johnny Rotten, Charlie Watts, and Lars Ulrich, Baker’s 4 wives, and 3 grown children all have something to say about him: “He’s a force of nature,” “he’s the greatest drummer any of us had ever heard,” “he’s mad,” and “he’s fairly consistently horrible” are just a few of them.

Ginger Baker looks back on his musical career with Cream and Blind Faith; his introduction to Fela Kuti; his self-destructive patterns and losses of fortune; and his current life inside a fortified South African compound.

Ginger Baker is, and was, a train wreck. Yet this film, like Baker's onstage playing, is always riveting, and something you can't look away from. Yet this film, like Baker’s onstage playing, is always riveting, and something you can’t look away from. ~ Charles Cross, Seattle Times

The takeaway: great musician, deficient family man, taxing friend and bandmate, excellent documentary subject. ~ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
