TWO ORIGINAL ALBUMS ON 1 CD

INCLUDES 6 BONUS TRACKS

This essential CD includes two of Alexis Korner’s seminal albums, made when he labored (teamed with his longtime music collaborator Cyril Davies) in near complete obscurity: the iconic 1962 LP R&B from the Marquee (which despite its title was actually taped at Decca Records’ London studio), plus the underrated and long unavailable, Blues from The Roundhouse (originally issued as a 10” in 1957).

In addition to the two legendary LPs from Korner’s legacy, this remastered collector’s CD also contains 6 bonus tracks, which consist of hard-to-find sides from the same period, including “3/4 A.D.” – a collaborative recording with the celebrated British folk guitarist Davy Graham

ALEXIS KORNER, vocals, guitar, and mandolin, plus:

Cyril Davies (vocals, 12-string guitar, and harmonica),
John Baldry (vocals), Spike Heatley (upright bass),
Keith Scott (piano), Graham Burbidge (drums),
Dick Heckstall-Smith (tenor saxophone), among others.

Recorded in London, between 1957 and 1962.
