hel-l yes I remember Savoy Brown they were from Detroit area and went to most of their local concerts..  They would play at fairgrounds, bars, etc long before they came famous.  For the life of me I cannot remember the name of one song they did?

Yes I would remember if I heard the songs.  My brain was pretty fried up back then.  Yep those were the glory years of nothing but fun, and low responsibility.  Drugs, sex, and rock and roll . Almost killed me, and still paying for those mistakes today.  

Cream--Sunshine of Your Love. Traffic --Low Spark of High Heeled Boys.  Iron Butterfly  In A Godda Divida. ( spelling )   What about the long version of Layla. Those were some of my favorites.  Hearing those old rock and roll songs of the 60's and 70's always makes me smile.   Who could forget Jimi , Janis and those Doors?  That was talent, that was music.  Such a shame their lives were so short.

Anyway, life changes and mostly I listen to jazz now.  I find it soothing, relaxing.  When I visit with my girlfriend we always have a rock and roll party for one evening. ( lol its all we can handle now )  We turn it up loud and sing and talk about the old days, and how lucky we were to have made something out of ours lives.  Some of our friends were not so fortunate.  Looking back it was a rough life.  Still fun though.

Lol  your right its Sawyer Brown.  If my memory serves me correctly they did not start out as a country band. In the beginning it was hard rock and roll.  It wasn't until their later years they switched over.

I've been in the midst of a Joe Cocker/Leon Russell "Mad Dogs and Englishmen" revival lately. Lots of clips on YouTube including what's likely my favorite:

I was just listening to Rita Coolidge (The Lady's Not For Sale). I think she sang back up for both Cocker and Russell, didn't she?

From Wikipedia
"Savoy Brown, originally known as the Savoy Brown Blues Band, are a British blues band formed in 1966, in Battersea, South West London.[1] Part of the late 1960s blues rock movement, Savoy Brown never achieved as much success in their homeland as they did in the United States, where they promoted their albums with non-s"



Shes got great big sexy legs I´m gonna call up China to see if the little girl is over there.!
Thats Sawoy Brown and they aint Country their blues .

Chris Yolden one of their singers had a  very nice voice one of the best blues voices in my opinion groovy just groovy .
Savoy Brown boogie i liked a lot  .

I´m tired of trying to be something that aint me
Wouldn´t it be real drag if we were all the same...........I often think about that lyric even today.

Had  three of their LP records when I was a teenager long time ago lol.

Late entry - but I remember Savoy Brown - the original one - not the "Jack the Toad" group. "Stay while the night is Young", "Hernando's Hideaway". They played in Jacksonville, FL and the group that opened was a group called "Chicken Shack" - with a girl named Stevie Nicks that nobody knew.
The guy in Savoy Brown - Lonesome Dave - then formed a band - called- Foghat.

Hi Bob,

I haven't been listening to much music these days. Wish I were.

My younger son's wedding is next week and I wonder if you have a couple of favorite groovy songs you can recommend to play at the reception.

I haven't come up with a music list, which my son asked me to do. (I haven't learned how to use my new digital camera, either, and he also asked me to help with that - sheesh.)

Please let me know, if you have a chance.
