This album was a great way to introduce a new era for the band. Dave Walker is a great singer, nearly as distinctive as Chris Youlden; Paul Raymond's organ-playing and songwriting seemed to invigorate Kim Simmonds; and the late Dave Bidwell was quite some drummer. Tell Mama could have been a bigger hit than it was, but part of the charm of Savoy is that they were a people's band - they certainly never committed an all-out commercial assault. The title-track is another classic. Great sounds, as the DJs of the day no doubt said...

HASH(0x9d15d054) out of 5 stars Everybody's Talking!!! 26 Sept. 2003
By chris meesey Food Czar - Published on
Format: Audio CD
At the end of 1970, Kim Simmonds found himself deserted by the other members of Savoy Brown, the band he had founded and nutured through five albums. Starting from scratch, he recruited a crackerjack new band, featuring ex-Idle Race vocalist Dave Walker and super keyboardist Paul Raymond to reinvent the band. Four twelve-hour marathon sessions produced Street Corner Talking, the last of SB's major classics. "Tell Mama" is the rare (for Savoy Brown) hit that opens the session, a great rocker. One of SB's most underrated songs, "Let It Rock" features Kim and Dave (or is it Paul?) singing their hearts out in an ode to the music's glory days. "I Can't Get Next To You" is a cover of the Temptations classic, lowdown and funky at half speed. Then, "Time Does Tell" features Dave at his most soulful and philosophical. "Street Corner Talking" combines great lyrics and a hypnotic, insistent riff by Kim that stays in the mind long after the song is completed. "All I Can Do Is Cry" has been a concert staple for years and features great guitar/keyboard interplay between Kim and Paul. It's a long classic in the mode of "Leaving Again" from Looking In. Finally, "Wang Dang Doodle" is SB's best blues cover ever, as Dave Walker growls the Willie Dixon tune with authority. As a bonus, the single version of "Tell Mama" closes the set. In short, Savoy Brown's best party album and one that is sure to start everyone talking at your next gathering.

HASH(0x9d15d1a4) out of 5 stars The golden age of hard blues rock 25 Jun. 2003
By Undertaker - Published on
Format: Audio CD
In the late 60's and early 70's, England was in the middle of a blues/hard rock obsession. Bands like Humble Pie, Free, Wishbone Ash, Ten Years After, Jeff Beck Group, Led Zeppelin, Trapeze and many more were playing the blues heavy and hard. Savoy Brown was right in the middle of it all. The hard boogie and blues rock on this album will let you know where real heavy metal came from. Kim S. was a great guitarist. Most of SB had left the same year to form Foghat, but Kim put together a steller new lineup, and made this classic. This is one of Savoy Brown's best LPs.
HASH(0x9d679cf0) out of 5 stars More recent Savoy Brown fan here: This is killer! 30 Nov. 2015
By John Alapick - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I never really got into Savoy Brown until a couple of years ago. I knew of them but didn't know much about them because you rarely hear them on the radio. I saw them live and fortunately a knowledgeable and longtime Savoy Brown fan was sitting next to me. I asked him which Savoy Brown album to pick up and he recommended Street Corner Talking. Well, he was spot on. This is killer. Everything here is very good and superb more often than not. "Tell Mama" opens the album with one of their most memorable tracks with its great chorus and Kim Simmonds' riveting slide guitar playing and the breakdown mid-song is a nice touch. "Let It Rock" keeps the momentum going with another catchy chorus and Paul Raymond's memorable piano lines. The band's version of "I Can't Get Next To You" may not be as definitive as the Temptations' version but they still do a great job with their slower and harder take. The title track is another winner with a killer guitar riff while "Time Does Tell" is another mid-tempo scorcher that works very well and features more of Simmonds' slow and tasty guitar work. The album ends with the two longest tracks and both are top notch as "All I Can Do" never feels like a near 11-minute track between Dave Walker's great vocals and the strong interplay during its jam while the band kill it on the Willie Dixon chestnut "Wang Dang Doodle". All told, between seeing the band live and this album, I am now a new Savoy Brown fan who is discovering more of their music. Thank you, Randall, for your guidance and expertise.

HASH(0x9d630168) out of 5 stars I wouldn't mind walking down this street any time of day or night 26 Nov. 2007
By Bryan - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Street Corner Talking is a really good classic rock and roll album. If you like catchy rhythms, bluesy vocals and guitar playing that's both melodic and well-performed, you'll fall in love with this album right away.

"All I Can Do" is a lengthy blues jam that continues to amaze me every time. The vocal melody is fantastic in a deeply sincere kind of way ("All I can do is cry" is an insanely memorable line). The keyboard jam that takes up the first half is realy melodic, and the guitar jam during the second half initially didn't blow me away, but repeated listens now reveals a totally different reaction. I hear really soulful blues taking place in most of these licks. Amazing. "Wang Dang Doodle" has a totally cool verse melody with a butcher knife totin' Annie, but the "all night long" chorus feels relatively uninteresting. For whatever reason it reminds me of something the band KISS would do or actually, reminds me of the Rainbow song "All Night Long" (that would come out 7 years later) in both the melody and the lead singer resemblance (Graham Bonnet sounds like this a little bit). The guitar riff in the background, while reminiscent of several other 60's and 70's blues bands, is still really remarkable all the same. The keyboard work throughout the song is my favorite part, but overall this song is undoubtedly a few minutes overlong.

"I Can't Get Close to You" is more of the same- memorable guitar riff, and the verse melody has interesting lyrics about the lead singer being able to live forever, and stand against (and try to accomplish) all kinds of impossible odds and why is he doing this? Just to get close to you, babe! Makes sense, haha. Actually he *can't* get close despite having the ability to make it rain, fly like a bird in the sky and even being able to live forever (only IF his soul desires!) so... maybe he's not trying hard enough? Maybe it's not worth standing next to such a person if you have to go through *that* much trouble? Actually these lyrics are not only humorous but really appropriate and creative for the blues/rock genre, so I like them. And if my feelings aren't clear enough through all that rambling above, I really love the song.

"Time Does" has interesting lyrics considering Savoy Brown is still active to this day and the line about acknowledging growing older, how time will still exist after we're gone, and not living in the past with regrets greatly stand out to me. This is pretty fascinating as far as lyrical depth is concerned, since these guys are technically a blues rock band. Most artists in the same category wouldn't write such excellent and intelligent lyrics- they'd write generic and obvious lyrics instead. Not these guys apparently. On a strange note, there's an odd feeling of beauty and uncertainty that's probably unintentionally created when the lead singer mentions the time on the wall in one set of lyrics, and the keyboards play almost hypnotically during this part. A feeling of distinctiveness is created there, the trademark Savoy Brown sound or at least, one of a few trademark sounds that I've been able to pick up so far. "Tell Mama" is the perfect opener with blazing slide guitar and memorable vocals, especially the verse melody. A sound that I identify with American rock, especially southern rock, however these guys are British and it's amazing how well they can take that style and reshape it into their own.

A must own for fans of Ten Years After, Grand Funk Railroad, or the James Gang but with more emphasis on the lyrics.

By A. J. Mathison - Published on

I first bought Savoy Brown over 25 years ago. Great white blues that has stood the test of time. This is their best album. Don't give up on the first grows on you, and it doesn't get old. Highly recommended.
