Kim Simmonds Does It All

"Original Savoy Brown Guitarist continues to produce good quality recordings, if not as inspired as the band's heyday in the late 60's and early 70's. The difference here is that Simmonds has finally committed to being the band's lead singer in addition to his roles as songwriter and guitar hero. Although no one would mistake Kim for Robert Plant, like Clapton, Simmonds, is a reluctant singer who has grown more comfortable in his new role and his voice has added a little gruff as it ages.
Steel is probably Savoy's best album in quite a few years. Simmonds voice sounds better on some cuts than others. Monday Morning Blues, Crying Forever, and Daybreak are outstanding cuts and the rest is good too.
Overall this CD is a little heavier and more rock oriented than other recent efforts. The biggest flaw is that it's a little too short by modern standards-just over 45 minutes. I would have liked to hear more-perhaps a bonus Live cut."
Let's not get too excited, boys and girls.

"I purchased this (expensive) cd primarily based on the preceeding reviews and from seeing Savoy Brown at the Chicago Blues Festival. This is an average rock & roll/ blues cd at best. There is nothing remarkable about the cd- it has decent songs and guitar work but that's about it."
