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

2.0 out of 5 stars Alex Korner new CDs August 11, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I have to agree with the other reviewer (Dave Peters) in saying that the Alex Korner set has come as rather a let down to me. I saw Alex a number of times in the late 1970's and early 1980's and always found what he did interesting. For that reason I started to pick up his original LPs and, since digital days, quite a few of the the compact disc tributes. What is really disappointing is the way that much of the same recordings seem to get re-packaged over the years and just the odd new track is added to make die-hard fans buy it. Well, I fell into the trap but can't say I feel it was money well spent. Surely there MUST be some more interesting stuff lying in the vaults than what is on this set?

1.0 out of 5 stars What a lost opportunity! August 9, 2006
Format:Audio CD
With a load of previously unheard Korner recordings supposedly tucked away in an archive, it's a real drag to see what is largely just a re-hash of previous CD issues plus a few unreleased tracks of interest to diehard fans only. The sound quality is quite patchy in places and this set is certainly not worth running to if you already have one or more of the other Korner retrospective collections. All in all, after all this time, surely the compiler could have put together a much more interesting anthology that spans the career of one of the biggest influences on 60s R&B?? This is a real lost opportunity to excite Korner fans and gets a big ZZZZZZZZ from me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not much new here, but it always sounds good December 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Alexis Korner was the godfather of us all. This double cd gives an overview of his long career. There are just a few new cuts to attract avid collectors, and I'd have to say I'm glad I splurged on a good second hand copy. I do wish the AK estate would stop repackaging so many of the cuts that are available so many other places. It's time to release Just Easy, Juvenile Deliquent, or the German only Polydor album on cd. Oh yea, the RAK self titled lp needs to be released on cd. I love to hear a clean copy of that gem.
