Album Review

The third release by Kim Simmonds and company, but the first to feature the most memorable lineup of the group: Simmonds, "Lonesome" Dave Peverett, Tony "Tone" Stevens, Roger Earl, and charismatic singer Chris Youlden. This one serves up a nice mixture of blues covers and originals, with the first side devoted to studio cuts and the second a live club date recording. Certainly the standout track, indeed a signature song by the band, is the tour de force "Train to Nowhere," with its patient, insistent buildup and pounding train-whistle climax. Additionally, David Anstey's detailed, imaginative sleeve art further boosts this a notch above most other British blues efforts.

Customer Reviews


Ok guys, this album has alot of good tunes more blusey that others in iTunes selections of Savoy music. Songs 1,3,4, are good. Here is the transition from Chris to Lonsome Dave singing. Chris fell out before the live performance and lonesome dave took over. I saw them do this tour and it was OK, but it was like seeing Jimi, with the Band of Gypsies, just not the same. However the positive side of these live tunes is that Kim simmons really shines and pushes that flying "V" of his to its virtuoso limits. Great rifs from the unknown master of blues guitar.

The Best Blues/Rock Songs in 1 Album

I thought about putting "Classic" in the title but frankly these songs hold up in performances today. "May Be Wrong" has an intro that reminds me to play Hendrix's version of "Red House" later. All the best elements of Kim Simmonds blues guitar playing are present. Decades later "Louisiana Blues" is a still a wonderful jam of a song.
If you appreciate blues guitar playing, you have to have this in your collection.

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,...
