Liner Notes

In another Scott Muni/Jack Bruce interview on this site, Jack mentioned that he had hoped to start working on a new album. A year later, A Question of Time was ready to go, an album that received critical acclaim for its wrapping of diverse elements into a coherent whole. Ginger Baker began touring with Bruce in support of this album, and Baker's career seemed to be back on track after a quiet few years.

Some of the more memorable moments within include his song introductions as a DJ for the World of Rock radio show, including the song "Flying," a tribute to the late Roy Orbison. There's also a nice recounting of his musical upbringing, including his parents' eventual acceptance of rock n' roll.
