Show Notes: 

Ginger Baker guests with the Bluesbreakers. He offers EC a ride back to London. On the drive, Ginger proposes they form a band. Eric is intrigued and mentions Jack Bruce - whom he had played with in the Bluesbreakers - should also be in the band. Eric was unaware of Baker's and Bruce's acrimonious past.
