The Best Band in the Land is the third and final studio album of Collective Consciousness Society. It was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, January to May 1973 and released in September that year. It includes covers of songs by The Kinks and Cream amongst others, but unlike their first album it mostly features original compositions. The style continues that of their previous two albums, with heavy rock and blues songs arranged with jazz instruments.

Although Korner was thrilled by the success of CCS, touring was a strain and playing heavily arranged music at big showcase concerts was never really his forte. CCS broke up in 1973 and Korner formed a group called Snape with ex-King Crimson musicians Boz Burrell (bass) and Ian Wallace (drums). Over the next few years, Alexis developed a career as a much-in-demand 'voice over' man for TV and radio advertising jingles, while retaining his interests in music. Ill health took its toll, however, and Alexis died in January, 1984, mourned by the many musicians and friends he had encouraged over the years. His influence on the development of the British rock and blues scene was immense and this exuberant set of performances provides a fitting memorial for a much loved and respected figure.
