The final project Ginger Baker played on before he passed away last month was an album and DVD of Cream reworkings going under the working title of Cream Acoustic.

The project was put together by record label QVR with the help of Cream lyricist Pete Brown. As well as Baker and Brown, it features Jack Bruce’s son Malcolm alongside an all-star cast which includes Bobby Rush, Joe Bonamassa, Maggie Bell, Bernie Marsden, Clem Clempson and Pee Wee Ellis.

Below, you can see Ginger Baker playing on a new version of Cream’s 1966’s song “Sweet Wine”, alongside Nathan James, Bernie Marsden, Mo Nazam, Malcolm Bruce, Abass Dodoo, Pee Wee Ellis and Henry Lowther.
