Album Review

Savoy Brown's blues-rock sound takes on a much more defined feel on 1970's Looking In and is one of this band's best efforts. Kim Simmonds is utterly bewildering on guitar, while Lonesome Dave Peverett does a fine job taking over lead singing duties from Chris Youlden who left halfway through the year. But it's the captivating arrangements and alluring ease of the music that makes this a superb listen. The pleading strain transformed through Simmonds' guitar on "Money Can't Save Your Soul" is mud-thick with raw blues, and the comfort of "Sunday Night" is extremely smooth and laid back. "Take It Easy" sounds like it could have been a B.B. King tune as it's doused with relaxed guitar fingering. The entire album is saturated with a simple, British blues sound but the pace and the marbled strands of bubbly instrumental perkiness fill it with life. Even the Yardbirds-flavored "Leaving Again" is appealing with its naïve hooks, capped off with a heart-stopping guitar solo. This album along with Street Corner Talking best exemplify Savoy Brown's tranquilizing style.

Customer Reviews

Sitting An' Thinking

Iin 1972 I purchased my first record player (yes/record player / remember those?). $15 seemed like a lot of money (way back then). But / when the deal was sweetened with him throwing in 45 LPs (Long Play / Vinyl Records) I couldn't resist. As I went to leave with my loot / I turned back & asked the college student, "Why are you selling all your music?" He replied he was joing the Priesthood & repenting his sins. I wondered / for a split second / if my Father's declaration of the end of the world coming soon because of us long haired peacemonger music lovers... but that was just a split second of my now ancient life... I was soon lost in Savoy's Lookin' In! Oh I have to tell you, Lookin' In has a special place in my rock'n'roll memories. It was the first album I ever played. & 38 years later / it still sounds GREAT! If you're tired of the top 40 drone... If you love classic swan song albums.... If Rhythm & Bluse tickles your fancy... This one will tantalize your ears from Gypsy to Romanoff you'll Take It Easy & never ever be Leavin' Again.

Go out and buy this at your local music store

If you want one song, buy Sunday Night. Once you hear it, you will not be able to hold back from getting the entire album. Trust me. What's with these partial albums anyway?

A great album

I'm not sure why they are calling this a partial album. I own the vinyl and these are all the songs that are on it.

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.
