Alexis Korner and King Crimson (minus Robert Fripp) came together as Alexis Korner & Snape, and recorded this 1973 Warner Bros. release. The album was recorded in San Francisco and also included some interesting guests including Patto members Ollie Halsall and Mike Patto, Tim Hinkley (Alvin Lee, Thin Lizzy, Roger Chapman). Peter Thorup of CCS was also a key member of Snape. Now for first time on CD, the album has been remastered from the original tapes and includes new detailed liner notes by band member Ian Wallace.
One of the best if not atypical

"Alexis Korner was a down and dirty bluesman. He wasn't afraid to throw himself into his music completely, even if it meant at times sounding raw and unrehearsed. That's not the case in these sessions. Recorded with a pickup band from members of King Krimson (who allegedly walked off their tour with Mr. Fripp to play with Alexis), these sessions are tight and flawless. The arrangements are tight, and Alexis's signature Gallois tobacco voice out on top. Simply great tracks. If you want to know what they really sounded like live, you can hunt down the live double vinyl set that was issued only in Germany. There you'll get the loose music that made Alexis Alexis. Here you'll get polished, well crafted songs from the master of British blues."
