To celebrate 40 years in the music business Cherry Red are proud to present a 40th Anniversary ‘Best Of’ of the Spencer Davis Group.
Releasing their first single Dimples in early 1964, there followed a string of major hits in the UK, US and Europe. This compilation presents the key songs from the peak period of the Group such as Every Little Bit Hurts, Keep On Running, Gimme Some Lovin’, I’m A Man, Time Selle , Mr Second Class. All recordings were made between 1965-1974, and feature Steve Winwood, Muff Winwood, Spencer Davis, Pete York, Eddie Hardin, Ray Fenwick.
The Group’s take on US R&B plus their own original songs in the R&B idiom, and the strength of their live performances, were a major influence on many music fans in the 60’s. Legendary producer Joe Boyd (Pink Floyd, Fairport Convention) was recently quoted as saying that when he came to the UK from America, the first live show he attended was an SDG concert and it created such an impact he sought to find a way into the music business from that point.
Thus we have compiled an album using versions of the key songs that best show off the Group’s dynamic R&B performances at the time . To enhance this celebration the accompanying booklet includes many archive photos .
