Rhythm-and-blues, a music genre influenced by jazz, gospel and blues that originated in African-American culture in the 1940s

When Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated was formed in London in 1961, there was not much of a British blues scene to speak of. Korner formed Blues Incorporated with his longtime collaborator, Cyril Davies, who like Korner, loved American blues. Blues Incorporated became the first amplified British blues band.The album was recorded on June 8, 1962, and featured Alexis Korner on acoustic guitar (no electric here) vocal duties by Baldry and Davies, Keith Scott on piano, Heckstall-Smith on tenor sax, Spike Heatley on string bass, Teddy Wadmore on bass guitar, Graham Burbidge on drums, and Big Jim Sullivan on vocals and guitar, though he was not credited for his guitar playing. I find this album so exciting to listen to because it really is the inception of recorded British blues, one of the records that started it all.

One of the most exciting components of the album is the back to back Muddy Waters special, “I Wanna Put a Tiger in Your Tank” and “I Got My Mojo Working”. The tempos are brisk and keep your feet moving, bringing out the energy, machismo, and sexual undercurrents of these songs. Most of Britain may not have gotten Muddy Waters yet, but Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated sure did. The former presence of Charlie Watts aside, you can hear the major influence this music would have on The Rolling Stones, a band which one can see as an eventual continuation of the tradition started by Blues Incorporated.

The distinctive appeal of Baldry’s vocals can be clearly heard on this record too, especially on the Leroy Carr penned “How Long, How Long Blues”.

R&B from the Marquee isn’t just an archaeological relic for those interested in the history of (British) blues, but is truly a thrilling, moving album that hits hard and should appeal to both casual and hardcore blues fans alike. Yes, it’s historical location enhances its mystique, but don’t be fooled. This album is all about great music.

    Buyer is happy with the recordplayer, but has the opinion that the secure measures for sending this vulnerable piece to Italy were too heavy) too much tape used)
    In the past parcels to Italy always arrived damaged to the buyers, so I sent it very well secured .Taping is easily removable.
    I don´t understand the fuzz about this
