CD Reviews

Excellent CD
Sunislow | 03/06/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great music for a ridiculously low price. The sound quality is excellent,
the song selection is just right and I like the retro cover designs. Now
the bad news: They could've printed some photos inside the fold-out
insert instead leaving it white, but the biggest mistake they made was
that they listed only TEN (10) songs on the back-cover, instead of the
FIFTEEN (15) that the CD actually contains.The 10 song they listed
on the back is not even in the correct selection-order, but random. The
correct songlist is (it only appears printed on the disc itself):
1.Gimme Some Lovin' (in the best known "lush" US mix), 2. Searchin',
3.Keep on Running, 4.I can't Stand It, 5.Strong Love, 6. Every Little Bit Hurts,
7.I'm a Man, 8.Back Into My Life Again, 9.Trampoline,10.Somebody Help Me,
11.When I come Home, 12.Stevie's Blues, 13.This Hammer (The Hammer Song),
14.Waltz for Lumumba, 15.Goodbye Stevie.
Unfortunately its rather misleading for the folks at the CD-store, seeing
only 10 songs (through the cellophane wrapper) listed on the back sleeve.
Amazon listed only 10 songs (see above) as well, probably because of
THE Most Underrated British Band
Steven R. Seim | Beaver Dam, WI United States | 07/23/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Spencer Davis Group may be the most underrated group in the British Invasion. The band had a tight, swinging sound, a nice balance between guitars and keyboards, and a tasty selection of musical influences - not to mention rock's greatest white-soul singer (Stevie Winwood). Their albums featured some of the best British blues and R&B, along with pop-rock to rival what the Beatles were doing at the same time (this was pre-"Sgt. Pepper," after all). Perhaps one day the SDG will finally get their due."
It's difficult to keep this in mind:

"The Spencer Davis Group's first lp was released in May 1965, which means the tracks,(some of which are here), were sung by a -sixteen- year-old Steve Winwood, (whose entire output with the band ended by the age of eighteen!). Keep that in mind when you're about to excuse some kid on 'American Idol' for sucking due to youth."
