"An epic of the Wild West....a dusty street....two lusty gunfighters fight it out to the finish....and the singer is....British??? That's "Jack the Toad," the title track from the most fun album Savoy Brown ever recorded. Imagine Phil Collins singing the blues, and you've got Jackie Lynton, who is veddy, veddy, veddy British. How British is he? Well, mate, he's just the sort of chap who'd fancy a coupla pints (not "just the one," doncher know!) and a game of darts over a plate of bangers and mash (or fish and chips) down to the local pub. In fact, "Comin' Down Your Way" sounds like it's coming straight from the corner bar, with Paul Raymond's tinkling saloon piano and Lynton's bouncing, goodtime vocals. "Ride on Babe" features a rare (for the time period), early Kim Simmonds vocal, and finds the guitar master blowing a mean harp as well. Well, I'll be blowed!! Other highlights include the tricky wordplay of "Casting My Spell," Kim's fantastic (guitar) soloing on "Just Cos' You Got the Blues Don't Mean You Gotta Sing," and "Some People," and, best of all, Jackie's wonderful vocal melodramatics on the title song, the best Western epic sung by a Brit since "Theme From an Imaginary Western," sung with great feeling by Felix Pappalardi on Mountain's Mountain Climbing LP. Great!! Yes, I know this album is very, very difficult to find (I got my copy from Russia, of all places!), but do search diligently; the pub-rocking, good-time wonders which await are well worth it, or I'll be Blowed!!!!"
One of my favorites

"I remember this album, unfortunately my ex-wife got them all. If this was available today I'd buy it again. Just saw Savoy Brown live in a small club, Kim Simmonds still has all his chops! Miss that music."
Music for all musiclovers once you listen you can't stop
