Spencer Davis Group - Eight Gigs a Week: The Steve Winwood Years (1964-1966)

Reviewer: J. E FELL "boogaloojef" from Amazon.com

This 2 cd anthology contains the complete Stevie Winwood recordings with the Spencer Davis Group. It also adds a couple of unreleased live tracks and some rare non-lp b-sides. The Spencer Davis Group was one of the best R&B groups of the British Invasion. Winwood's tenure in this group is overshadowed by his work in Traffic, Blind Faith and his solo career. But his talent is present even in these early recordings. Most feature his soulful vocals, his impressive organ playing and underrated guitar work. The contains his two biggest hits with the band "Gimme Some Lovin'" and "I'm A Man". The band at this point was tight and played with real energy and feeling. This set contains many cover tunes like "Dimples", "Watch Your Step", and "Every Little Bit Hurts" which are energetic versions. These are contrasted with some burning slow blues and ballads like "I'll Drown In My Own Tears" or "When A Man Loves A Woman". It also contains more jam oriented material like "Stevie's Groove", "Stevie's Blues" and "Blues In F" which highlight the bands instrumental prowess. The latter tracks were sort of precursors to his great work in Traffic. Other notable cuts include singles like "Keep On Running", "Somebody Help Me", and "When I Come Home". This compilation is a welcome addition for fans of Steve Winwood or the British Invasion, and Hammond organ aficionados. Don't let the price deter you from purchasing this anthology, it is well worth the money to have all Winwood's tracks together on one set.formatiom?
