Discography

To be totally honest I have never released anthing that I was particularly proud of. There have been several 'George Baker' albums over the years and I always cringe a bit when people I meet tell me they still have my albums or 'tapes' (or cassettes) from years ago.

By the Spring of 2008 I will have my new album of original songs finalised. I expect to be proud of this one.

Maybe I will offer to give free copies to people on condition they agree to destroy any of my old stuff lurking in the drawer at home.

A long time ago I was writing and recording jingles for 'Radio Suffolk' (now SGR FM) and must confess that, at the time, I liked hearing my original compositions and hearing myself singing on radio adverts. Again for financial reasons I moved away from that particular activity beacuse live gigging paid so much better 'cash on the night'.

Somewhere out in the garage I have vinyl singles dating back to the seventies with other artistes singing my compositions. No one very famous though.

Bio

As a mature entertainer (or 'old bloke') with a great many years experience singing and playing 'covers' in clubs, pubs, theatres, holiday parks,social functions, American Air Force bases and every other kind of gig you can imagine, I have to say that the entertainment business has been fairly kind to me.

Those of you with similar experiences over the years will understand how relatively easy it was to get gigs and feed the family when performing 'covers' and 'dance music'. It was a totally different situation if trying to play 'own material'.

Now I longer rely on gigging for an income,I feel that I would like to share some of my original songs and experiences of life with anyone interested to listen. It is always a great joy to me when others perform or record my compositions. The status of the artiste is not of any great importance to me. Anyone is welcome to use my stuff providing they observe the copyright reservations in the event that they might gain financially from the use of the material. Email me if not sure.
