Commentsby Alexis Korner Blues Inc. (featuring Long John Baldry, Dick Heckstall-Smith) A DECLON Recording-originally released on Ace of Clubs in United Kingdom only. "Alexis Korner, who started his career as singer and guitarist much influenced by the early country blues artists-Leroy Carr, Scrapper Blackwell, Blind Lemon Jefferson and so on-has perhaps more than any other been responsible for the surge of interest in this country in all forms of Negro folk music, but particularly of course in blues. Touring the country giving lectures and concerts, sometimes solo, or with his band, working on projects with author Paul Oliver, radio and television interviews and discussion groups-his influence has not gone unnoticed. Currently Alex(is) is working as vocalist with the highly commercial and successful British studio outfit, C.C.S. (Collective Consciousness Society) hitting the charts in the last two years with their own renditions of "Boom Boom" (John Lee Hooker) and "Sixteen Tons" (Tennessee Ernie Ford)." - Mike Vernon
