Album Review

After 1970's Looking In album, Peverett, Roger Earl, and Tony Stevens left to form Foghat, leaving Kim Simmonds with yet another dilemma. But for Simmonds, things went a little smoother than he might have imagined, picking up piano player Paul Raymond, bassman Andy Silvester, and drummer Dave Bidwell, all from Chicken Shack. He also hired singer Dave Walker, who was the former frontman with the Idle Race, and together the new lineup recorded Street Corner Talking, one of Savoy Brown's finest moments. Gelling almost instantaneously, Walker's cozy yet fervent voice countered with Simmonds' strong, sturdy guitar playing, and an exuberant mixture of British blues and boogie rock prevailed. All of Street Corner Talking's efforts are solid examples of the group's blues-rock power, from the slick cover of Willie Dixon's "Wang Dang Doodle" to the deep feel of "All I Can Do" to the subtle strength of "Tell Mama," Walker's best-sung tune. The album's blend of sultry guitar blues and upfront rock & roll flavor give it a multi-faceted appeal, with every musician contributing his talents uniformly, which is something that's rather difficult to achieve after there's been a wholesale change to the personnel. Although they stayed together for the Hellbound Train album, Silvester was replaced by Andy Pyle for 1972's Lion's Share release, and a year after that Walker left to join Fleetwood Mac.

Customer Reviews

Will they get the missing songs?

This was one of the better albums to come out of the 70s. The three songs on the partial album are decent rock/pop songs but the album has its heart ripped out. If you are a music freak and love good music on headphones, find "All I can do is cry" from this album and give it a try. The guitar and piano melt me everytime I hear it. The rest of the songs from this album are rockers and worth the search. Enjoy!

Street Corner Talking

If youv'e never heard Savoy Brown now is the time excellent album nice mix of rock and jazz.Group never achevied huge acclaim too bad for those that didnt hear them.

Street Corner Talking

This is one of the most incredible ablums ever put out by Savoy Brown. I am a seriouw collecter and look to buy entire collections of original albums. What's the deal on these partial albums? I won't buy them. If I-Tunes would get serious about us collectors you might notice a "SLIGHT" increase in sales. I am looking for entire collections wherever I can find them and I you guys get it together first, you'll be my main source. Meanshile if a compeditor reaches that capability before you, so sorry, your LOSS. DC

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,...
