• THE GODFATHER OF BRITISH BLUES

Alexis Korner is widely regarded as the founding father of British blues. He became well known in the ‘60s, as his early performances and teachings were a magnet for young blues enthusiasts. Korner put together amplified blues outfits that spawned the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Pretty Things, Cream and Led Zeppelin, among others. He also became a familiar exponent of the idiom on the BBC.

This essential LP release includes R&B from the Marquee – one of Korner’s most iconic albums from his early days with Blues Incorporated. The long play was not a live album, nor was it cut at the Marquee as its title suggests. It was actually taped at Decca Records’ London studio in June 1962, produced by Jack Good and released that same year by Decca’s subsidiary label Ace of Clubs.

In addition to the original long play, this limited collector’s edition includes 4 bonus tracks from the same period. The bonus material includes the guitar instrumental “3/4 A.D.” (a collaborative recording with the legendary British folk guitarist Davy Graham), Willie Dixon’s “I’m Built for Comfort,” and two hard-to-find sides: Lead Belly’s “National Defence Blues,” and the acoustic gem “Sail On.”
