5.0 out of 5 stars Hellbound Train June 9, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Had the great fortune to see the latest version of Savoy Brown last night in Folsom CA. and they played Hellbound Train despite the absence of a keyboard player. That performance brought back memories of the Album itself which I've been playing all morning. Although there are a good half dozen Savoy Brown albums worth owning, Hellbound Train has got to be the best and most consistent of the lot. Starting with Doin Fine the pace never lets up. Do yourself a service and grab hold of this piece of Rock/Blues/Boogie and enjoy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fade into dissapointment July 16, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this CD to replace my vinyl copy because I love the music but when the last song (Hellbound Train) was re-edited into a cop out fade out ending which shortened the song by almost 2 minutes I was dissapointed. Whoever did this did't get what it was all about. Aside from this, it is a good album but not as good as the original. I wish they would have faithfully reproduced this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing ending found February 7, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Like other reviewers I rate Savoy Brown's "Hellbound Train" very highly. It's not quite as great as "Raw Sienna" for example but compared to just about anything else, that's a small complaint. If you're into Hendrix, Cream, and early Zep, this is for you. Several reviewers noted that the original ending to the title track, "Hellbound Train", is faded out on the CD version instead of the original dead stop ending on the original LP. That original ending is available on the "Savoy Brown Millenium Collection" that is widely available. What I love about this album is that the bass is so upfront on the songs. Electric guitar lovers will feast on this album. While the title track is very heavy blues rock,almost proto heavy metal, several songs are far more upbeat and/or bluesy. "Doin' Fine" and "I'll Make Everything Alright" are also great blues boogie tunes excellent for dancing to. The real bonus to me is the organ on most of the songs is classic Hammond B-3 style similar to Steve Winwood's early work. Anyone interested in playing "classic rock" live in a bar type setting should check this album out for inspirations. Savoy Brown ranks easily with the best Free, Spooky Tooth, Humble Pie, Faces, etc. Yeah this is English white boy derivative blues but it's just too good. They deserve a wider audience, even now, and it would be so great if their early albums could be given the upgraded reissue treatment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hero to Zero, and back March 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First... WOW. A couple of Kim Simmonds classics together, remastered no less! Some nice liner notes too... although author unknown. You know about Hellbound Train, with the title track and Lost & Lonely Child headlining a short (under 35 min) but impressive release. It's getting your hands on a remastered Wire Fire that's the treat. Since the list of songs from that LP is missing here, and since it's WRONG on the CD itself, here it is;

08. Put Your Hands Together 4:57

09. Stranger Blues (not "Strangest Blues" as listed on the package) 3:30

10. Here Comes the Music 5:50

11. Ooh What a Feeling (title missing altogether on the cd package) 6:54

12. Hero to Zero 5:14

13. Deep Water 4:30

14. Can't Get On 4:41

15. Born Into Pain 6:30

Length wise, the double-cd is 76:25.

The cuts off of Wire Fire are incredibly hot; deserving of the front cover photo by Buddy Rosenberg & Bob Levy. If you are lucky enough to find the LP (this is why God made ebay), the back cover is a smokin' amp next to the guitar player stand-in (who ever Warner is?).

Having only heard the music off a beat up 1975 stereophonic London LP release, this remastered release was A GIFT. Just the final song Born Into Pain will put you into tears of joy. But throw in Stranger Blues, Hero to Zero, and Deep Water, and you have one heck of an album.

Band members were; Kim Simmonds (lead guitar), Paul Raymond (keyboards, guitar, vocals), Andy Silvester (bass), and Tommy Farnell filling in for the much-missed Dave Bidwell (drums).

Get this double cd, or the standalone Wire Fire. Most these songs you can't get off "greatest hit" type collections, and you'll be amazed at what you've been missing.

The review from Roger Madison is 100% correct in his assessment of the ending of the CD when the title track "Hellbound Train" fades out rather than ends abruptly (like the shock you'd get arriving in Hell). So if you want to hear it done right, you can buy the 2 CD anthology "The Savoy Brown Collection" where it doesn't fade out.

Post note: I had the pleasure of chatting with Kim Simmonds in 2003, after he put on a short acoustic set in a bookstore (I won't name it here!) in a local mall. Kim informed me that the CDs with the fadeout ending on Hellbound Train are actually no longer available and are somewhat of a collector's item. I haven't bothered to buy another copy to see if that's true... I don't recall the reason he gave for the fadeout ending, however I do recall that he had heard plenty of complaints about it, not that it was his fault.

4.0 out of 5 stars A turning point for SB July 7, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ok, this was my very first SB album. I purchased it soon after the original release. It wasn't until later that I found their earlier work such as Street Corner Talking (my favorite). HT is a perennial LP and a must-have for any fan of early British Blues-rock. The album is a little dark (they way it was intended). Put it on, play it, and play it again.
