5.0 out of 5 stars The start of rock n roll...Xtra 26702 27 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD
This 26 track trip through the formative years of Alexis Korner features Blues Incorporated; Breakdown Group; Skiffle Group and Beryl Bryden's Back Room Skiffle.
Alexis Korner was born in 1928 and passed away in 1984 and was an active force in the music business from 1945 onwards being referred to as the Father of British Blues.
Tracks on this CD come from Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated, "R&B From The Marquee" album which was recorded in June 1962 plus his earlier Skiffle Group recordings. The sound transfers are excellent and the compilation is great value for a running time of approx 72 minutes.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Korner 17 May 2013
By Bluto
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
a mix of the good and the not so good . I think there was more to Alexis than some of the skiffle type tracks . Good to own though as part of a wide picture
