5.0 out of 5 stars British Blues/Rock Anthology October 19, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This 2 cd anthology compiles Decca material from the years 1967-1978 (14 lps some of which are not in print at present). Savoy Brown was/is the blues/rock boogie band of Kim Simmonds the lead guitarist/part time singer and only original member still in the band. The band's early work is similar to a number of British blues/rock bands from this era such as Ten Years After, early Fleetwood Mac, and Stan Webb's Chicken Shack among others. The band is often unfairly overlooked due to Simmond's band member turnover and the decline in the later period material. The earlier material (highlighted on the first disk) consisted of blues covers, blues based originals, boogie numbers, and jazzier numbers. Later the band became more commercial and less successful. This period is highlighted rather effectively on the second disk. In my opinion the peak period of the band was during the years 1968-70 when Chris Youlden handled the vocals and part of the songwriting. The bands membership is ever changing and notable ex-members include Lonesome Dave Peveritt, Tone Stevens, and Roger Earle who would quit to form another British boogie/blues band Foghat. Another notable ex-member is keyboard player/guitarist Paul Raymond (formerly of Chicken Shack, Webb's whole backing band joined Simmonds after Foghat was formed)who was later a member of UFO, and the Michael Schenker Group. Bassist Andy Pyle was in Blodwyn Pig and later Wishbone Ash. This compilation is representative of all the band's line-ups through 1978. An emphasis is placed on the stronger material up to 1974. Perhaps the biggest surprise with this collection is the versatility of Kim Simmond's guitar playing. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars No filler! April 20, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The trouble I have with most "anthology" box sets is that they are either a.)glorified "greatest hits" packages with several of those dreaded "newly recorded" tracks tossed in to pad things out,or b.) comphrehensive to the point of redundancy, with 27 bonus demo versions of songs already in the set. Luckily, this Savoy Brown collection is the rarity- a well selected, smartly sequenced, sonically excellent overview of the band. Of all the great British blues guitarists who started out around the same time (Clapton, Beck, Page & Co.),Savoy Brown's Kim Simmonds has quietly remained the most faithful to an authentic blues sound. Considering the revolving door of band personnel who are represented here, what impresses the listener is how consistently Simmonds has kept to his original vision over the years, without ever becoming boring or sounding stale. If you're only budgeted for one purchase for your Savoy Brown collection, you need not take one step further than this anthology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Start Your Collection With This Collection!!! October 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
So, a sibling, lover, or real good friend has got you all hot and bothered about Savoy Brown, that they are the greatest thing since sliced bread, etc., and you want to run out and buy some of their unforgettable music! What a great idea! But, just one question: which album to get? Well, how about all of them! And since you don't have a couple hundred extra dollars just lying around to spend on music, get this fabulous compilation instead. Starting at the very beginning with the British-only (and hard to find) CD, Shake Down, and concluding with the Mutt-Lang produced hard rock epic Savage Return from 1978, there is plenty of music to suit your every mood and whim. Whoever put this collection together (wonder if Kim himself had a hand in it) knew what they were doing: Of the 29 tracks in the album, no fewer than a dozen are taken from SB's three greatest albums: Raw Sienna, Looking In, and Street Corner Talking. Also, only one cut apiece was drawn from such "lesser" works as Boogie Brothers, Jack the Toad, Wire Fire, Skin 'N Bone, and Savage Return, and this was probably a wise decision as well. Personally, it's regrettable that only two tracks should be drawn from such an excellent set as Getting to the Point; how about including "Walking By Myself", "Big City Lights", or "Taste and Try Before You Buy?" (Now that we're on the subject: What about a second collection chronicling the years 1981 to the present? True, SB's glory days were in the sixities and early seventies, but there is enough good material on their later releases to warrant a new compilation. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Savoy Brown June 12, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Nothing will ever replaced seeing these guys live in some small club - but this is close. One of the all time great and unique blues groups and I can still see them nailing the drums to the stage before they went on. For those of us lucky enough to see these guys perform - a must album that will be played over and over and over...

3.0 out of 5 stars A Space In Time November 8, 2005
By Mad Dog
Format:Audio CD
These tunes really take me back to the late 60s and early 70s when nearly every aspiring rock band felt they had to learn to play the blues. A few of them, like Savoy Brown, actually became decent blues bands. But rather than thinking of Savoy Brown in the strict blues vein, I see them for where they took their own music. These guys played live with big energy and they had an infectuous boogie groove. In that respect, they did play an important role in rock during their peak. I think that one reason they didn't maintain their popularity is because they didn't change much over time and since the music world was morphing rapidly, they kinda got left behind. But that doesn't take away from the great music they made.

I went a little low on the rating for a couple of reasons. First, if there were half stars available, I wouldn't hesitate to bump this up to 3.5 stars, but can't manage to go to 4. The reason I'm hesitant to go up to 4 is that I feel these tunes hold up better in their original LP than in a compilation. So I'd put 4 stars on Street Corner Talking and Looking In without hesitation. Maybe it's because of all the times we sat around (or danced around) at parties when the whole LP was played. Secondly, I find some of these tunes a bit weak and I reserve 4 and 5 star ratings for albums that are more consistently strong.
