Alexis Korner
Stoned
Castle/Sanctuary

This two-CD set provides an overview of the recording career of Alexis Korner, a hugely influential figure long regarded as the godfather of British blues. From the early skiffle group sessions in the ’50s to more raucous, Chicago-blues-inspired tracks cut during the ’60s and ’70s with his Blues Incorporated, Stoned reveals Korner as a blues scholar and mentor with a genuine feel for the music he adored from the time he was a kid and imparted that real-deal feeling to his many disciples, including Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Robert Plant, Paul Rodgers, Long John Baldry and others. They all make cameo appearances on this anthology, which spans 1954 to 1983 and provides a history lesson along the way.
