  • The studio version of this uptempo guitar instrumental runs to around 4 minutes 7 seconds. Written by Gallagher himself, it appears on the Fresh Evidence album which was released May 1, 1990. It might be described as a tribute song, taking its name from Alexis Korner (1928-84) "The Founding Father Of The British Blues".

    Korner was born in Paris but came to London as a boy in 1940 and stayed for the duration. Although a successful and influential musician, his major contribution was arguably as a DJ and radio presenter in his later career, bringing this particular form of contemporary music to a wider British audience. >>
