SAVOY BROWN Steel Blue/SPV (2008)

Savoy Brown

Guitarist / vocalist Kim Simmonds has kept the name alive since the mid 60s, and the name is synonymous with the best of British blues rock.

Opener "Monday Morning Blues" is a slow, gentle and moody number. Some good guitar work.

"Long As I've Got You" picks up the pace, with a touch of boogie and the odd burst of slide guitar. This is what Savoy Brown do best.

With a change of pace "I Don't Remember You" is slow but aggressive with some great guitar work.

Simmond's guitar work is as good and varied as ever, there is some great work here, and fans will not be disappointed. The let down is some of the tracks do nod a little at MOR blues, making the title of Steel a bit of a misnomer.

A good finish though, with a 10 minute live take on the classic "Hellbound Train", where the blistering blues comes through.
