SPENCER DAVIS GROUP - THE SECOND ALBUM + 8 BONUS (FONTANA 1966) Japan cardboard sleeve SHM-CD




The Spencer Davis Group were were one of the UK's most convincing R&B bands to emerge during this period. They were best known for introducing a prodigious teenager, Steve Winwood, to the world. It was apparent from their first record that Winwood, with his ferocious soul drenched voice, belying his tender sixteen years, would be the focal point of the group.
Davis put the group together in Birmingham in 1963, and they turned professional a year later. From the outset of their recording career they made it plain that albums were as important to them as singles - unusual in those days.
The group's first three singles reached the lower end of the Top Thirty, but it was the release of their debut album "Their First LP" in July 1965 that established them as a major group. Under the guidance of producer, Chris Blackwell the quartet got their first major hit with the blistering "Keep on Running", originally performed by another of Blackwell's acts, the West Indian Jackie Edwards. From then until Winwood's departure every single the SDG released was a huge hit (including "Somebody Help Me", "I'm A Man" and "Gimme Some Loving".
The second LP was also well-received on its release in February 1966...Here
