Alexis Korner: R&b From The Marquee
Artist: Alexis Korner
Title: R&b From The Marquee
Label: Rumble Records
Product Type: VINYL LP
Rumble Records present a reissue of Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated's R&B From The Marquee British, originally released in 1962. Blues legend Alexis Korner first began performing live in 1949 in Chris Barber's Jazz Band, where he met his longtime bandmate, the great harp player Cyril Davies, and they released their first recordings in 1957. After cutting their teeth on the UK club circuit, honing their skills to near perfection, together in 1961 they formed Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated along with the great UK vocalist Long John Baldry, and released this, their debut album, in 1962. R&B From The Marquee is one of the pillars of British Blues and an album that influenced heavily the coming generation of British Invasion blues groups. Featuring originals penned by Korner, Davies, and Baldry as well as American blues legends Jimmy Witherspoon and Muddy Waters, this is a killer piece of British blues history, finally back in print on vinyl.
