Good sound quality.

If you're a fan of "British Blues Rock" or just simply just into great guitar bands- this album is a must have!
Blue Note Teddy
"Street Corner Talking" cooks from beginning to end."Tell Mama" is a rockin' anthem for drifters and losers.

At the end of 1970, Kim Simmonds found himself deserted by the other members of Savoy Brown, the band he had founded and nutured through five albums. Starting from scratch, he recruited a crackerjack new band, featuring ex-Idle Race vocalist Dave Walker and super keyboardist Paul Raymond to reinvent the band. Four twelve-hour marathon sessions produced Street Corner Talking, the last of SB's major classics. "Tell Mama" is the rare (for Savoy Brown) hit that opens the session, a great rocker. One of SB's most underrated songs, "Let It Rock" features Kim and Dave (or is it Paul?) singing their hearts out in an ode to the music's glory days. "I Can't Get Next To You" is a cover of the Temptations classic, lowdown and funky at half speed. Then, "Time Does Tell" features Dave at his most soulful and philosophical. "Street Corner Talking" combines great lyrics and a hypnotic, insistent riff by Kim that stays in the mind long after the song is completed. "All I Can Do Is Cry" has been a concert staple for years and features great guitar/keyboard interplay between Kim and Paul. It's a long classic in the mode of "Leaving Again" from Looking In. Finally, "Wang Dang Doodle" is SB's best blues cover ever, as Dave Walker growls the Willie Dixon tune with authority. As a bonus, the single version of "Tell Mama" closes the set. In short, Savoy Brown's best party album and one that is sure to start everyone talking at your next gathering.

In the late 60's and early 70's, England was in the middle of a blues/hard rock obsession. Bands like Humble Pie, Free, Wishbone Ash, Ten Years After, Jeff Beck Group, Led Zeppelin, Trapeze and many more were playing the blues heavy and hard. Savoy Brown was right in the middle of it all. The hard boogie and blues rock on this album will let you know where real heavy metal came from. Kim S. was a great guitarist. Most of SB had left the same year to form Foghat, but Kim put together a steller new lineup, and made this classic. This is one of Savoy Brown's best LPs.

Street Corner Talking is a really good classic rock and roll album. If you like catchy rhythms, bluesy vocals and guitar playing that's both melodic and well-performed, you'll fall in love with this album right away.

"All I Can Do" is a lengthy blues jam that continues to amaze me every time. The vocal melody is fantastic in a deeply sincere kind of way ("All I can do is cry" is an insanely memorable line). The keyboard jam that takes up the first half is realy melodic, and the guitar jam during the second half initially didn't blow me away, but repeated listens now reveals a totally different reaction. I hear really soulful blues taking place in most of these licks. Amazing. "Wang Dang Doodle" has a totally cool verse melody with a butcher knife totin' Annie, but the "all night long" chorus feels relatively uninteresting. For whatever reason it reminds me of something the band KISS would do or actually, reminds me of the Rainbow song "All Night Long" (that would come out 7 years later) in both the melody and the lead singer resemblance (Graham Bonnet sounds like this a little bit). The guitar riff in the background, while reminiscent of several other 60's and 70's blues bands, is still really remarkable all the same. The keyboard work throughout the song is my favorite part, but overall this song is undoubtedly a few minutes overlong.

"I Can't Get Close to You" is more of the same- memorable guitar riff, and the verse melody has interesting lyrics about the lead singer being able to live forever, and stand against (and try to accomplish) all kinds of impossible odds and why is he doing this? Just to get close to you, babe! Makes sense, haha.

Guitarist Kim Simmonds leads the band to an interesting array of tunes with tasty style and vocals.

I first bought Savoy Brown over 25 years ago. Great white blues that has stood the test of time. This is their best album. Don't give up on the first listen...it grows on you, and it doesn't get old. Highly recommended.

Have to agree with the reviewers calling this a classic. If I go back and listen to their previous stuff, it doesn't really hang with the likes of Beck, Fleetwood Mac, or even Zep. If you want to hear blues masters, get Then Play On. Yes this album veers into boogie, but what counts to me is that it withstands the test of time. It still sounds fresh and original. I'd give it five stars if it wasn't a bit short on material.

The quality is as expected from such great musicians. It is not quite as good as Raw Sienna. But Raw Sienna was Savoy Browns greatest album. I would recommend this for all Savoy Brown fans.

Back in the early 70's my brother gave this album to me for Christmas. I was around 12 or 13. I never heard of them. I placed it on the turntable, put the needle down and was totally blown away. One of the best albums of all time! Not one of these songs ever made the charts. You never hear any of the songs on any classic rock station. But each and every one of these tracks can stand alone and are fantastic! I never tire of hearing this album. Over the next couple years after this gift I purchased other Savoy Brown albums - Lions Share, Hellbound Train, Jack The Toad, Boogie Brothers, Skin N Bone. Than I bought a lot of their 60's stuff. To me - Street Corner Talking, Hellbound Train, and Lions Share are their three best but you can put Jack The Toad in there also. Anyone wanting to listen to British blues rock that will knock your socks off - than get this album!
