Description

The music on this CD is representative of the three main “lives” of Blues Incorporated. The first and most well-known is the outfit which made their debut album, R&B From The Marquee featuring vocals from Cyril Davies and Long John Baldry. Secondly, the late ’63 to early ’65 period when the band were fronted by experienced black American vocalist, Herbie Goins. Finally the spell from mid ’65 to ’66 when the band were effectively without a vocalist other than Alexis Korner himself. Blues Inc. released four studio LP’s, one live LP and two UK singles from 1962 to 1966 but the disc you have in your hands zeroes-in on the band at the Beeb.
