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.

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 ›

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...

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.

"Legendary...a blues/rock institution...true innovators. These are just a few of the ways Savoy Brown has been described over the past forty years by music critics and fans.

One of the earliest of British blues bands, Savoy Brown, with founder guitarist Kim Simmonds at the helm, helped launch the 1967 UK blues boom movement that brought blues music back to the USA invigorating the style forever. In the process, the band became part of the framework that launched the rock and roll music of the 1970's. Their influence now stretches into modern rock as we know it today."

I have collected Savoy Brown over the years and have found this compilation one of the best. It chronicles the early years when the vocalists were at their best. Members have come and gone over the years but the glue that keeps the Savoy Brown Train rollin', Kim Simmonds continues to this present day putting together a team of top notch musicians. The quality is still there and the music still stays rooted in the blues.

Other Savoy Brown favorites of mine:

-Lion's Share 1972
-Blue Matter 1969
-Bring It Home 2000
-Hellbound Train 1972
-The Blues Keep Me Holdin On 2000
-Raw Sienna 1970

Go for it, you won't be disappointed!!
