Just discovered the Alexis Korner 1979 series "The Devils's Music" on the iPlayer.

Here's a link to programme 1

Many muchos Will. That's my late night viewing tied up for two hours at least. I never got to see the original series - living in a one room urban shack at the time, with an aerial and a power socket but no tv - but surely there was more to it than just those four episodes?

Can't think why I missed it first time round - probably out gigging!

I wonder if Series 1 still exists...

Looks like it's on the iPlayer as part of the recent "All American Collection" of TV programmes on BBC4.

"The American Collection" also includes the 1985 film "Studs Terkel's Chicago" - which I did see - a superb film.

Will,
Well spotted I did see it first time around and had forgotten how good it was. Songs played in full without interuptions from talking head rock musicians and good quality filming.
After I have watched them all I will have to take in Terkel's film.

Thanks for posting.

It was fun to watch AK. His radio blues hour was a must - followed on when the Mike Raven show series stopped, as I recall. I used to see Alexis in the old BBC Club bar in the Langham now and then, waiting to go over to the studios to record his slot - also met him a few times at the Cousins all nighters. Always seemed like a good bloke to me, but I would say more of an influential musician than an exciting one...

Anyway, it was worth seeing his hair and sideburns again - so 70s! :-)

I agree with you Will Alexis was more influential than exciting, a good presenter and also voice over for tv commercials. Far more exciting in my opinion was Cyril Davies particularly after his split from Alexis. I remember the jam packed Thursday nights at the Marquee with Cyril's band which then spawned a Tuesday session by a group of newcomers headed by Mick Jagger.

I agree, Cyril Davies was some cookie. What a crying shame he died so young, 50 years ago next January in fact. I used to have a copy of the EP which his band made for Pye International. Alas, it disappeared in a house move years ago. I've lost very few records in my lifetime, but you can bet your darned tooting that had to be one of them.

Ah, Fred - I have that very same EP in my collection. As I recall, the tracks were "Country Line Special", "Sweet Mary", "Chicago Calling" and one whose name escapes me for the moment. Nicky Hopkins also played some mean piano on it - and you can hear Long John Baldry's voice there in the backing choruses. Sweet! Let me know if you'd like some mp3s...

Just remembered the 4th track = "Preaching The Blues".

The 45rpm single of Country Line Special / Chicago Calling currently sells for £30 plus at record fairs if you can find it. The last one I saw was £36.00 about six months back. One of the best R&B numbers to come out of the British scene.

Will, thanks for your kind offer to MP3 me the Cyril Davies ep tracks. Could you email them to me at StationWSM@aol.com ? That's not my regular e-mail address. In fact it's a redundant one which I can always close down if I start to get abusive emails from a certain person who used to post on Mudcat.

Hopefully the guy has either ceased or deceased, but you can never be sure.

Of course I'll see what I've got that I can send you by way of many thanks.

Will do, Fred - it'll take me a day or so to extract the EP from its pile and transfer to mp3.
