One of Alexis Korner's better and more obscure albums, Red Hot From Alex, features the 1964 version of Blues Incorporated, supported by alumnus Dick Heckstall-Smith on tenor sax on a handful of tracks, recreating their live sound in the studio. The results are reasonably successful, the group at times achieving a fairly intense, swinging ensemble sound that, at its best, carries an infectious level of excitement. This band's sound is a lot slicker throughout than that of the version of Blues Incorporated that played the Marquee Club in 1962 and 1963 and left behind the album R&B From The Marquee. This album shows the power of the band and the general transition from Jazz to an authentic British blues style.
Personnel: Alexis Korner - electric guitar, vocal, Dave Castle - alto sax, flute, Art Themen - tenor saxes, Dick Heckatall-Smith - tenor saxes, Ron Edgeworth - organ, Danny Thompson - string bass, Barry Houghton - drums
