Golden Joe Baker Official Tribute Web Site
Songs, Stories and Memories
I saw the
website and the videos of Joe on you tube last night.
Thank you so much for putting the website together and for
putting the videos on the internet. I watched them all
multiple times. They brought smiles to my face and
tears from my eyes. I loved watching Joe perform.
I met him in the late 70's at the Surf and Turf in Salisbury
Beach where he used to perform to standing room only crowds.
I used to clean the club at nights and got to know Joe.
We even used to go to the Seabrook dog track together.
I can see him now with his stogie in his mouth and the
racing form in his hand. I used to say to myself if
these people at the track knew that this guy was a fabulous
performer with a helluva voice who puts on a show and a
half, he wouldn't be able to watch the races as they would
have crowded him for sure as everybody loved Golden Joe
Baker. I was very young at the time but I remember
telling several people that this guy belongs in Vegas and I
wish I could be his manager because he would sell out every
night. Thanks for bringing me these memories Dave.
I believe I have some pictures of those days and when I find
them I will forward them to you if you would like me to.
We miss you Joe!
