The British music scene 50s was a pretty sorry sight. Carol Los Mansmann is often quoted as being for or against this. It was two original camps – the traditional jazz and still only nascent rock 'n' roll. Just as clearly there is a division categories of students – adults English on one side and the youth, eagerly listening to the American radio and listened to a whole new and exciting music – on the other. In 1958, Alexis Korner formed the legendary group 'Blues Incorporated'. Enough to name, went through the school BI, and it becomes quite clear from taking their roots Dozens of groups 60's – Graham Bond, Charlie Watts, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker and others.

Almost every one of them, leaving the ranks of the group, created his own ensemble and proceeded to spread the blues. It is hard to overestimate the influence of 'Blues Incorporated' on development all blues-rock 60s, but they soon began to shift from a position of leader of the genre. And for the leading roles began to come out musicians who were Alexis Korner himself recently 'brought to the people. " They, 'Rolling Stones', 'Yardbirds' and 'Animals', were successful in promoting blues-rock to the masses. Very strong rhythm and blues albums in 1965 and 1966, respectively issued a Group 'Graham Bond Organization'. Among the 'veterans' of the British blues as it should be noted 'Bluesbreakers' John Mayalla. This group is one of the first to write your own blues songs, and quite good. The peak of popularity 'Bluesbreakers' occurred in 1966 when they released their album 'Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton'.
