The first band I ever went to see was Status Quo back in 1973. Savoy Brown were the backing band so consequently the first band I ever saw live. The whole show was superb although it took my untrained ears two days to stop ringing. I had never heard of Savoy Brown but they were excellent so I rushed out and bought this album (can't remember why I chose this one - maybe I liked the cover)and never had any regrets. Some blurb that I've since read says that this is a 'heavy rock-slanted offering' but I prefer to classify it as heavy blues. All tracks have a great melodic guitaring drive to them. If this is a heavy rock album it is the best for blue moods that I have ever been hooked by.
Another one for a listen is Raw Sienna.

Fairly undistinguished album from savoy brown. They've made some great tracks over the years but never really managed a complete classic album, probably their best shot would be Hellbound Train a couplr of years later.

MOTTING IN 22 April 2002
By Kim Fletcher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Probably Savoy Brown's best and most successful album which was recorded on a personnel precipice as within weeks of its release three quarters of the band deserted the ship leaving leader Kim Simmonds on his own and looking for new band mates to form Savoy Brown version 5 (he's probably up to Savoy Brown version number 989 by now). The others with the addition of mercurial slide guitarist Rod Price went on to form Boogie legends Foghat, leaving Savoy Brown because of alleged iniquities in the division of income, whilst recording some ten albums for Bearsville records they became the leaders of the British Boogie and Stadium Rock wave.
"Looking In" was the predecessor for all this. Topped and tailed by two short Kim Simmonds guitar pieces there are seven pieces of solid gold blues and boogie. Just before going into the studio the erratic vocalist Chris Youlden had decided to leave the band in search of solo fame, so taking his trademark eye piece, topper, and cane, he upped and went, leaving the others high and dry with studio time booked and no yodeler.
Cometh the hour cometh the man, up to the microphone stepped second guitarist Lonesome Dave Peverett, and a stirling job of handling the vocals he does too, whilst adding valuable guitar work to the longer numbers, particularly final work out "Leavin' Again", when the dueling guitars battle it out like an electric dueling banjos for a glorious eight and a half minutes when the band do what they do best and boogie out, Lonesome Dave also co wrote this with Tone Stevens.
"Poor Girl" first song proper on the album was another written by Tone Stevens, a real belting blues, which is still in the Savoy Brown stage repertoire today, although Stevens left the band more than 3 decades ago.
But star of the show with Savoy Brown, always was and always will be Kim Simmonds (funny name that for a boy) who's guitar playing throughout this album is nothing short of awe inspiring, Simmonds could easily match the likes of his peers such as Clapton. Beck, & Page, but was more often than not the unsung guitar hero, probably because unlike all the others he stayed true to his initial roots of the blues, still playing the same style since 1966, and there doesn't seem much likely hood of him changing now, not for him the commercial appeal of pop or heavy metal although I'm sure even now he could turn a coin or two by squashing his feelings, and prostituting his guitar work.
Simmond's finest moment on "Looking On" comes on "Take It Easy" a slow burning song Kim wrote with Dave Peverett that from very small beginnings builds to a shattering guitar climax.
This album collects the essence of the live beast that is Savoy Brown on stage and that was where they were at their best, so if two and two make four, then this is Savoy Brown at their finest.
Mott the Dog.

An Introspective Masterpiece!!! 25 Sep 2003
By chris meesey Food Czar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In 1970, life was pretty good for Savoy Brown. They had just produced Raw Sienna, their finest album to date, and were building a name and rabid fanbase for themselves, particularly in America. Then, without warning, lead singer Chris Youlden decides to drop out. At the time, the story given was that he was tired of standing on stage, waiting for Kim Simmonds to finish his lengthy solos, and so decided to strike out on his own. In any case, Savoy Brown was suddenly left without a lead vocalist. A creative entity often produces it's best work in times of crisis, so Kim and Co. turned on the creative juices, Lonesome Dave took over the lead vocals (sounding very much like Chris in some of the numbers), and Savoy Brown produced Looking In, their strongest and most mature work ever. The brass and orchestration of Raw Sienna was shelved in favor of lengthy guitar-and-percussion based works of deep introspection. There is a heavy jazz improvisational feel to several tracks, particularly "Sunday Night" and that fabulous live staple, "Leaving Again". The latter number includes some of Kim's most eloquent guitar work of his entire 30+ year career. "Gypsy" and "Romanoff" are brief instrumentals that should remind the listener of Fleetwood Mac's "Oh, Well (Part II) with it's heaven and hell journey of soul searching. "Poor Girl" and the title track deliver the solid mule kick of hard rock that Dave, Tone, and Roger would use to such great effect in Foghat. (Tone even wrote the excellent "Poor Girl;" pretty good effort for a sharp-dressing bass player!) But, the album's most astonishing number is "Money Can't Save Your Soul," approximately four minutes of slow-burning cold fire. Kim has periodically returned to the themes of money and success in his lyrics; nowhere more eloquently than in this piano and conga-driven wonder. And as a vocalist, Lonesome Dave gives his finest, most passionate performance ever. (The doubletracked vocal gives an archival effect that ensures this is a performance for the ages). Having climbed a musical Everest, there was nothing the band could do or say after this album that would not be anticlimatic. So, they fractured one fantastic band and came up with two excellent ones: Dave, Roger, and Tone formed Foghat with ex-Shakey Vick guitarist Rod Price; while Kim reformed Savoy Brown and looked for new worlds to conquer. But, to paraphrase Winston Churchill, this was truly Savoy Brown's finest hour.

Desert Island Disc 18 Jun 2006
By Oliver Towne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Hmm... Why, out of thousands (millions?) of albums out there, would I pick this oddball? Good question. I love many types of music. In the course of a day I might listen to progressive country, bebop, alt-rock, Bach, Led Zep, jazz fusion, reggae, etc., etc. We call that being open-minded.

So, again, why this?

Well, it's three-fold. For one thing, this is one of the earliest albums I owned at age 13 in 1971. I won it in a shoe store drawing (yes, a shoe store), and, when I saw the cartoonish cover, was highly skeptical. "What kind of weird stuff could this be?" It turned out to be excellent. Even a dorky kid who sawed away badly on the cello could recognize the talent.

Secondly, it's a unique slice of British blues-rock from that era, the era that was ushering in all the heavy rock soon to be known as "metal," but which had its roots in the blues that most of the British Invasion bands were grounded in. Savoy Brown just held to the core longer.

Finally, the playing--the interaction between Simmonds, Stevens, Peverett, and Earl--is superlative. It's simple stuff, but if you listen to what everyone is doing you can't help notice how much they were in the groove with each other. That, babies, is what it's all about. (Great mix, too, if you are a guitarist or bass player.)

I listened to this thing about 200 times between 1971 and the mid-80s, when I sold my LP collection, but now that I have it again on CD I'm still in love.

I don't know why anyone born after 1960 would be reading this review, but if you're a young player exploring the early rock days, do yourself a favor and buy this unusual album. (You'll be the only one on the block, I guarantee.)

Excellent early 70s Blues and Boogie record. 5 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Savoys turned over the microphone to their rhythm guitarist Lonesome Dave Peverett on this release,after the departure of their singer. There are also some great instrumentals here. Kim Simmonds' lead guitar work is nothing less than invigorating. A great album.

See Ya Later Alligator! 30 Nov 2005
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I wore out my 8 track tape of the most excellent "Looking In" back in the 70's. I just picked this up and it sounds as great as it did back then. Kim Simmons & Co rock out, jazz it up, and wallow around in the blues for 39 minutes and 38 seconds... and they do it all seamlessly, effortlessly and flawlessly.

Lonesome Dave and Kim Simmonds were probably two of a handful of otherwise ham-fisted, rock-n-roll guitarists who actually knew how to play altered/extended jazz chords and solo on the changes - just like a REAL jazzman! Not to worry. Jazz this ain't. These dudes flat-out ROCK!

But just listen to Kim Simmonds play on Leavin' Again as his lead lines effortlessly slide between fire-breathing (yet smooth) Wes Montgomery-esque jazz stylings and then into the power blues of Eric Clapton ala Crossroads and then into BB King and then back to Wes Montgomery and so on and so forth. Yet Kim makes it all sound so cohesive and brands it with his own trademark sound. Really smart, stylish, yet wild and crazy playing on this one.

Dear reader: this is one of the great releases from the tail-end of the 60's. I always thought it was a shame that Stevens, Earl, and Lonesome Dave bailed to form Foghat. This round of Savoy Brown was superior in every way to ANYTHING Foghat ever accomplished. I always hoped the lineup would return. Alas, it is too late as Lonesome Dave left the physical realm several years back.

Anyway, click it! You'll love it! Give it to your favorite blues fan as a treat! Entertain your friends! Impress them with your superior musical knowledge and taste with this somewhat unheralded blues/rock masterpiece.

"See ya later alligator!"
