Description

THE SPENCER DAVIS GROUP was one of Brum’s greatest gifts to the world of Rock and Roll. They initially took up a Monday residency at The Golden Eagle on Hill Street in Birmingham where almost from the opening night they played to sell-out audiences. It wasn’t long before the Spencer Davis Group moved a few yards up Hill Street to play at and fill the Town Hall, on the way to becoming one of the UK’s finest ever rhythm and blues combos. Sadly, vocal and keyboard star Steve Winwood left the band to form Traffic after only four years when they were still very much on the ascendant. Nevertheless, they left a massive music legacy with such million-selling hits as Keep On Running, Somebody Help Me, I’m A Man and the band’s own composition Gimme Some Lovin’ which was subsequently recorded by The Blues Brothers for THAT movie. Not bad going for a couple of brothers from Erdington, a Welsh school teacher and a GKN engineer.
