Album Review

Savoy Brown, the long-lived British blues-rock band, spent a decade signed to the British Decca label, which released their albums in America on the Parrot and London subsidiaries. The band's commercial heyday, a series of six modestly charting LPs, came early on, and this discount-priced compilation presents 11 highlights from that period, 1969-1972, including Savoy Brown's two minor chart singles: "I'm Tired" and "Tell Mama." Other than guitarist/founder Kim Simmonds, the band suffered frequent personnel changes, and even in this period of three years there was a complete turnover, starting with the "classic" lineup including singer Chris Youlden and guitarist Lonesome Dave Peverett and ending with another popular one featuring singer Dave Walker. The band's sound, however, remained much the same, driving blues-rock with screaming, lengthy guitar solos and forceful singing. This is not a comprehensive compilation of Savoy Brown on Decca by any means (for that, see 1993's The Savoy Brown Collection), but it does give a good sense of what the group sounded like at the top of their game.

itunes stop messing up!!!

i loaded this cd into my computer and the album artwork is wrong!!! i deleted it, went to go get album artwork again, and it's still bobby brown. i have this issue with a lot of albums. why can't itunes ever get it right?!

Worth checking out

I have owned this album twice before & never gotten it back either time that it was borrowed. I would say it is kind of reminiscent of The Guess Who. "Stay While the Night is Still Young" should still get air play on classic rock stations. A combination of the singer's sultry voice & a unique tempo change in this song sends chills down my spine every time that I hear it. The rest of the album has a slightly different flare, but is still worthwhile.

Part of the late-'60s blues-rock movement, Britain's Savoy Brown never achieved as much success in their homeland as they did in America, where they promoted their albums with nonstop touring. The band was formed and led by guitarist Kim Simmonds, whose dominating personality has led to myriad personnel changes; the original lineup included singer Bryce Portius, keyboardist Bob Hall, guitarist Martin Stone, bassist Ray Chappell, and drummer Leo Manning. This lineup appeared on the band's 1967 debut,...
