This is not collaboration with Alexis but the best tribute song to him.
"It was fitting that during one of Rory's earliest appearances on BBC radio he was interviewed by Alexis Korner – a man for whom Rory had the highest regard and to whom he dedicated the track 'Alexis' on his album 'Flesh Evidence'.
