40th Anniversary: Keep On Running
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 .

Give Peace A Chance
Wayne Henderson, along with childhood friends Wilton Felder, Joe Sample, and Nesbert "Stix"¨ Hooper, formed the nucleus of the Jazz Crusaders in 1961. By fusing elements of jazz, funk, soul, R&B, rock, Latin, and gospel, an iridescent sound emerged with such impact that a musical revolution was unearthed. The group signed to Pacific Jazz Records and recorded sixteen albums for them. Their ability to breathe new life into many different types of compositions gained them an immediate fanbase that grew internationally throughout the 1960’s.
At the close of the decade, they recorded a one off album for Liberty Records. GIVE PEACE A CHANCE saw the quartet move in a more soulful direction than on early albums. Amongst their own compositions was an amazing Funky workout of Roy Hawkins’ "The Thrill Is Gone” as well as the Lennon/McCartney tunes "Give Peace A Chance” and "Black Bird”.
GIVE PEACE A CHANCE was not one of the group’s biggest sellers in 1970 due to a lack of promotion from Liberty Records but the album has gained in stature over the decades and is seen very much as the first step towards the band’s seventies fusion classics like Southern Comfort and the international hit Street Life.
BBR is very proud to announce the international CD debut of GIVE PEACE A CHANCE complete with brand new liner notes and remastered sound. It is a must for all Jazz Fusion, Soul and Funk fans out there.
