Biography

Without Alexis Korner, there still might have been a British blues scene in the early 1960s, but chances are that it would have been very different from the one that spawned the Rolling Stones, nurtured the early talents of Eric Clapton, and made it possible for figures such as John Mayall to reach an audience. Born of mixed Turkish/Greek/Austrian descent, Korner spent the first decade of his ... Read more in Amazon's Alexis Korner Store

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As a long time fan of the British blues movement (Paul Jones, Long John Baldry, Rolling Stones etc) I have always found it frustratingly hard to get hold of material by Alexis Korner, the man who can be credited with starting it all. Though he will probably be best remembered for the acts that he supported and helped to get going in the early days, he also left a superb recording legacy that should be just as celebrated.

With a distinctive gruff voice and guitar style This anthology covers a whole range of material, mixing blues with jazzier arrangements, and in later work with the CCS, big orchestral music. The highlight is the take on Led Zeppelin's 'Whole lotta love'. Anyone who watched Top Of the Pops in its hey day will instantly recognise this as the theme music. There are many other fine tracks here, a superb cover of the Stones 'Get offa my cloud' (after hearing it Keith Richards said 'we should have done it like that'), a great version of 'Hoochie Coocie man', and a whole plethora of standards given his distinctive treatment or fine originals.

This set does a fine job of collecting together the best and most important recordings of Alexis' career into one place. The remastering quality is pretty good throughout, the liner notes are very informative and the track listing is in a sensible chronological order. A very well put together set. My only trouble was that after listening to this I was left wanting so much more! Serious fans should note that as well as this collection a series of remastered Alexis Korner albums have now been released, so those wanting a bit more than a best of might wish to look ther instead.

If you didn't play with John Mayall in the 60s blues boom, then you played with Alexis Korner. Or you were no-one.

And he did THE, I mean "THE" Top of The Pops theme tune which, even if Jimmy Page wasn't keen, is still a cracking take on Whole Lotta Love. And yes, it's on here.

A career spanning introduction to the man whose love of the blues and music generally shone through everything he did.

Alexis Korner was at the forefront, so many of the musicians that made it through the sixties and seventies and those of the eighties and nineties who took the influences, owe so much to Alexis.

Hear how it sounded and started a true maestro ..........

A great example of Alexis Korners blues output that shows his understanding of the blues with some cherries but outnumbered by the good tracks.

Alex Korner new CDs 11 Aug 2006
By Alan Dobie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have to agree with the other reviewer (Dave Peters) in saying that the Alex Korner set has come as rather a let down to me. I saw Alex a number of times in the late 1970's and early 1980's and always found what he did interesting. For that reason I started to pick up his original LPs and, since digital days, quite a few of the the compact disc tributes. What is really disappointing is the way that much of the same recordings seem to get re-packaged over the years and just the odd new track is added to make die-hard fans buy it. Well, I fell into the trap but can't say I feel it was money well spent. Surely there MUST be some more interesting stuff lying in the vaults than what is on this set?

What a lost opportunity! 9 Aug 2006
By Dave Peters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
With a load of previously unheard Korner recordings supposedly tucked away in an archive, it's a real drag to see what is largely just a re-hash of previous CD issues plus a few unreleased tracks of interest to diehard fans only. The sound quality is quite patchy in places and this set is certainly not worth running to if you already have one or more of the other Korner retrospective collections. All in all, after all this time, surely the compiler could have put together a much more interesting anthology that spans the career of one of the biggest influences on 60s R&B?? This is a real lost opportunity to excite Korner fans and gets a big ZZZZZZZZ from me!

Not much new here, but it always sounds good 29 Dec 2006
By Marcus Aurelius - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Alexis Korner was the godfather of us all. This double cd gives an overview of his long career. There are just a few new cuts to attract avid collectors, and I'd have to say I'm glad I splurged on a good second hand copy. I do wish the AK estate would stop repackaging so many of the cuts that are available so many other places. It's time to release Just Easy, Juvenile Deliquent, or the German only Polydor album on cd. Oh yea, the RAK self titled lp needs to be released on cd. I love to hear a clean copy of that gem.
