Album Review

Getting to the Point marks the debut of a vastly different lineup, still led by Simmonds but now fronted by new vocalist Chris Youlden. The pair got off to a good start by writing or co-writing most of the album. The playing is solid blues revival, and though Youlden's vocals are often overly imitative of B.B. King and Muddy Waters, he has a confident voice and frontman persona. Originals like "Flood in Houston" and "Mr. Downchild" provide the highlights.

Customer Reviews

Real good BLUES

Now, this is real vintage Youdlin. Him and Kim Simmons are great. I was blown away when they played at the Filmore West AKA Winterland. Bill Graham, was positive when he introduced them for the first time to US audiences. The band equipment made up for the poor PA system of the time and DAMN Kim was great that night. This is a must for Blues people of the 60's and fans of Savoy Brown, before they were UGGGG Foghat....That band sucked. Of course the concert was expensive, it cost me $3.75 cents for a 6 hour concert of them and 3 other bands, and all I got was some damn poster for the next show JIMI, Jefferson Airplane and some band from the LA Whisky scene that was coming soon to San Francisco, The DOORS and Iron Butterfly. Never heard of them.. BUMMER.

Savoy Brown's best album

A great mix of slow churning blues and some boogie magic.Maybe the best ensemble blues band ever.

Gaining on Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac...

1964-1968 was the "Blues Revival", English version. American kids were listening to Paul Butterfield and Mike Bloomfield, and the Brit bands came to the states with varying degrees of success. Savoy Brown probably never got a huge audience in America, but they did play very good electric blues. Kim Simmonds had the sharpest guitar sound amongst the plethora of Brit-Git-Guys and Youlden had a reasonably good voice.

This is often cited as their best record, and it may be. I would have to hear more to make that judgement.

- Good record, good blues/rock, circa 1968. Worth the money for sure.

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,...
