We need a Forum Topic to let interested people know of new music that is out.

I just bought a couple CD's and one really impressed me. I mean really impressed me. Kim Simmonds has kept the Savoy Brown name alive. He has been releasing Blues albums with his cut down three piece band for a few years.Going to the Delta was great, but the new CD "Witchy Feelin" is superb! The blues is not hard rock blasting your ears, it's Blues with feeling. And as always, Kim Simmonds guitar work is excellent. While Kim Simmonds reminds me of Peter Green, he is on the top of his form on this release. For a three piece band, they are great. Give it a listen, you may be surprised. It's not a classic Savoy Brown sound, but it is good blues.

Hi Gorg , That funny I typed out A whole post the other day asking the same thing . about new songs that members  liked and though others would like. Then I deleted it I heard dark country the other day a thought it was really great songs because of the guitar playing . one song was ((drink the water by Justin Cross). and on was (bury them deep) . and I am always looking for rock and metal songs but any songs work as long as the music is good . don't care much for the words as long as it good. hope it works.

 Not to distract from Grog's CD promotion but a funny Kim Simmonds story happened with me a few years ago. I was checking into a hotel for a blues event that included Edgar Winters, Canned Heat and others at an associated casino and I was in line with my traveling guitar on my back. A man comes in right behind me to check in carrying his guitar, and I turned and said, " Hey maybe we ought to jam  later", He smiled and said " Sure, we could do that." I asked him if he part of the blues concert event, saying he was on first. My brain was spinning, thinking, this must be Kim Simmonds. What a hoot, knowing he was likely just having fun with me on the jam comment. And yes , he was fantastic , though the entire Savoy Brown band was not with him. very cool and laid back guy, and has that infectious Welsh accent. A memorable moment for me for sure. I never got to jam with him though....

Nice songs Grog, I listen to them I like the way that they are clear you can hear every note. Delta Blues is my favorite kind of blues.

 

Nice songs SIx . Great variety Nice rock songs . The only famous people I have ever hanged with was Ivan and Makita Koloff  The wrestlers from 70' s At 16 was working at a gas station they rolled in and I pumped there gas and checked their oil . asked them where they where wrestling  at next . and if they wanted a piece of me they laughed  they stayed for a hour are so . nice guys. Boogie woogie man Jimmy Valiant the wrestler lives about 15 minute from my house  He own and run a wrestler training school see a lot of him and other wrestlers . Was invited to the white house one time to have diner with Ronald and Nancy Ragan but could not attend wife was about to have our second girl. Was supposed to have went to La and meet slash didn't go because of heart problems . but seen and meet him it Charlotte Nc . at the Carolina rebellion concert but he didn't  have much time to talk but the concert was free.

Blue Dog: I'm glad that you liked the songs. Give the CD a listen, well worth your trouble. Try "Going to The Delta" as well. I am more taken with and impressed by emotion in the guitar, rather than the flash of technical prowess. That is why I think Gary Moore and Kim Simmonds are head and shoulders above Bonamassa. Their phrasing just makes their guitars sing and cry,  Joe is the better guitarist, but devoid of emotion a lot of the time. A technical wizard and a great rock guitarist, I think. Man gonna start the howling now eh.

 

I am from Calgary, if you are in Bowness by 16th Ave. You look up on the hill to the west and you see a mansion halfway up. That is the "Hart" mansion. I ran into Brett Hart at the airport, I was there doing a service call. I was surprised at how small he was. I towered over him. Not friendly either. In fact I used to run into a lot of "Sports elite" at the airport. One of the reasons I lost a lot of use for them. One time the Flames were coming in Gate A when I was getting the PC  up again. A kid runs up to Mike Vernon and asks him politely for an autograph. Vernon looks at the kid and says "F**** off kid, get lost" and walks on.

Grog, thanks for the cd recommendation.  I had, of course, heard of Savoy Brown.  But I never really followed them.  I didn't even know they were British. But coincidentally just about a month (or two) ago I heard Voodoo Moon on satellite radio.  You described it perfectly, "the emotion in the guitar".    That song has gone on my bucket list.

 

I definitely am going to pickup the new album. 

 

btw, the howling won't start but I disagree with you about JB.  :getlost:

Kim Simmonds moved to the US in the 80's I believe. His band are American now I think. He has always been an inspiration to me. His feelin' for slow blues is so unbelievable. I have seen him in person a few times. Incredible player. And he does not get the recognition that he deserves.

Hi Grog I listened to the album last night great album. Then I clicked on Angry Johnny and the Hellbillys  and man good guitar playing but some ruff stuff and a lot of Hard Core songs. I like the way the album of songs are played with great detail. makes it more bluesy. thanks for posting them . Blue Dog

My local PBS station has a weekly blues show every Monday afternoon, 1-3 pm.  It is a really good show and I have met the DJ at some local blues shows.  Coincidentally, he just played the title cut from "Witchy Feelin" and then went on to rave about the album.

Well it is a great album Mantonanjin. I am not making anything off of it, I just wanted to let you fellow guitar freaks know about it. It is a great blues guitar album.

I also bought the new George Thorogood solo album as well. I don't play it nearly as often as I have played Savoy Brown's. Just lonesome George playing blues,  no band.

And this week he just played "Close to Midnight", an instrumental,  from the album.  It is just breathtakingly beautiful!

I've been listening to Black Country Communion lately. Greg Hughes on bass and vocals, Joe Bonamassa on guitar and vocals, Jason Bonham on drums and Derek Sherinian on keys
