Probably Savoy Brown's best and most successful album which was recorded on a personnel precipice as within weeks of its release three quarters of the band deserted the ship leaving leader Kim Simmonds on his own and looking for new band mates to form Savoy Brown version 5 (he's probably up to Savoy Brown version number 989 by now). The others with the addition of mercurial slide guitarist Rod Price went on to form Boogie legends Foghat, leaving Savoy Brown because of alleged iniquities in the division of income, whilst recording some ten albums for Bearsville records they became the leaders of the British Boogie and Stadium Rock wave.
"Looking In" was the predecessor for all this. Topped and tailed by two short Kim Simmonds guitar pieces there are seven pieces of solid gold blues and boogie. Just before going into the studio the erratic vocalist Chris Youlden had decided to leave the band in search of solo fame, so taking his trademark eye piece, topper, and cane, he upped and went, leaving the others high and dry with studio time booked and no yodeler.
Cometh the hour cometh the man, up to the microphone stepped second guitarist Lonesome Dave Peverett, and a stirling job of handling the vocals he does too, whilst adding valuable guitar work to the longer numbers, particularly final work out "Leavin' Again", when the dueling guitars battle it out like an electric dueling banjos for a glorious eight and a half minutes when the band do what they do best and boogie out, Lonesome Dave also co wrote this with Tone Stevens.
"Poor Girl" first song proper on the album was another written by Tone Stevens, a real belting blues, which is still in the Savoy Brown stage repertoire today, although Stevens left the band more than 3 decades ago.

In 1970, life was pretty good for Savoy Brown. They had just produced Raw Sienna, their finest album to date, and were building a name and rabid fanbase for themselves, particularly in America. Then, without warning, lead singer Chris Youlden decides to drop out. At the time, the story given was that he was tired of standing on stage, waiting for Kim Simmonds to finish his lengthy solos, and so decided to strike out on his own. In any case, Savoy Brown was suddenly left without a lead vocalist. A creative entity often produces it's best work in times of crisis, so Kim and Co. turned on the creative juices, Lonesome Dave took over the lead vocals (sounding very much like Chris in some of the numbers), and Savoy Brown produced Looking In, their strongest and most mature work ever. The brass and orchestration of Raw Sienna was shelved in favor of lengthy guitar-and-percussion based works of deep introspection. There is a heavy jazz improvisational feel to several tracks, particularly "Sunday Night" and that fabulous live staple, "Leaving Again". The latter number includes some of Kim's most eloquent guitar work of his entire 30+ year career. "Gypsy" and "Romanoff" are brief instrumentals that should remind the listener of Fleetwood Mac's "Oh, Well (Part II) with it's heaven and hell journey of soul searching. "Poor Girl" and the title track deliver the solid mule kick of hard rock that Dave, Tone, and Roger would use to such great effect in Foghat. (Tone even wrote the excellent "Poor Girl;" pretty good effort for a sharp-dressing bass player!) But, the album's most astonishing number is "Money Can't Save Your Soul," approximately four minutes of slow-burning cold fire.Read more ›

The Savoys turned over the microphone to their rhythm guitarist Lonesome Dave Peverett on this release,after the departure of their singer. There are also some great instrumentals here. Kim Simmonds' lead guitar work is nothing less than invigorating. A great album.

Hmm... Why, out of thousands (millions?) of albums out there, would I pick this oddball? Good question. I love many types of music. In the course of a day I might listen to progressive country, bebop, alt-rock, Bach, Led Zep, jazz fusion, reggae, etc., etc. We call that being open-minded.

So, again, why this?

Well, it's three-fold. For one thing, this is one of the earliest albums I owned at age 13 in 1971. I won it in a shoe store drawing (yes, a shoe store), and, when I saw the cartoonish cover, was highly skeptical. "What kind of weird stuff could this be?" It turned out to be excellent. Even a dorky kid who sawed away badly on the cello could recognize the talent.

Secondly, it's a unique slice of British blues-rock from that era, the era that was ushering in all the heavy rock soon to be known as "metal," but which had its roots in the blues that most of the British Invasion bands were grounded in. Savoy Brown just held to the core longer.

Finally, the playing--the interaction between Simmonds, Stevens, Peverett, and Earl--is superlative. It's simple stuff, but if you listen to what everyone is doing you can't help notice how much they were in the groove with each other. That, babies, is what it's all about. (Great mix, too, if you are a guitarist or bass player.)

I listened to this thing about 200 times between 1971 and the mid-80s, when I sold my LP collection, but now that I have it again on CD I'm still in love.

I don't know why anyone born after 1960 would be reading this review, but if you're a young player exploring the early rock days, do yourself a favor and buy this unusual album. (You'll be the only one on the block, I guarantee.)
