Originally recorded in 1975.

Released in 2005, Baker Gurvitz Army/Live offers so far unreleased live material from the time after the second BGA album Elysian Encounter. With drummer legend Ginger Baker (Cream, Blind Faith), Adrian and Paul Gurvitz (The Gun, Three Man Army), and Keyboardist Peter Lemer.

An almost 60 minute long recording: two songs of the self-titled first BGA album, three pieces from the second album Elysian Encounter, as well as two more titles which can't be found on any other BGA album, that is they were never recorded in studio or released as studio versions, respectively.

Not remastered, however featuring a brilliant sound with a quality much higher than what one were used to regarding live recordings at the time. CD in deluxe digipak, with richly illustrated booklet and extensive liner notes.
