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

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.

It doesn't matter that Alexis Korner was the Godfather of British Blues. It doesn't matter how important he was or whether he introduced this guy to that guy. It doesn't matter that he was an influence (and in one or two cases father figure) to some of the greatest British musicians to come out of the sixties.
What does matter is that the kid played. And the kid played good!
Alexis Korner saw the blues as a very broad church and was not adverse to skipping pews to find a good tune.
There are many different styles represented on this album and it's all very good music.
If you want to learn how blues came to Britain, start here.

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 ..........
