From 1974 and 75 comes `Boogie Brothers' and `Wire Fire'
`Boogie Brothers' features Stan Webb and Miller Anderson; `Wire Fire' did not get a UK release, as was the case with subsequent Decca releases. Digitally remastered and slipcased with extensive new notes.

Only mainstay Kim Simmonds remained from previous album "Jack The Toad", with vocalist Miller Anderson and the rhythm section of Jim Leverton and Eric Dillon all joining from Hemlock who had recently released a self-titled debut album on Deram. In addition, former Chicken Shack main man Stan Webb was also on board. Originally planning to call themselves the Boogie Brothers, the reputation of the Savoy Brown name eventually saw them stick with that.
Simmonds wrote the powerful funk-rock opener `Highway Blues' and the laidback instrumental album closer `Threegy Blues'. Webb's sole writing contribution was the brooding blues of `My Love's Lying Down', while there's also a cover of Bo Diddley's `You Don't Love Me'.
The remaining five tracks were all written and sung by Miller Anderson. The superb acoustic ballad `Always The Same' features just Anderson (vocal / acoustic guitar) and Simmonds (steel guitar), while the Lynyrd Skynyrd-esque `Everybody Loves A Drinking Man' is notable for some sizzling Simmonds slide guitar playing.
Anderson's other cuts are the groovy `Me And The Preacher' (also featuring some fine Simmonds slide guitar) and the more formulaic blues-rock anthems `Rock `N' Roll Star' and `Boogie Brothers'. The album performed well in the US, but was not a success in the UK and was to be the last Savoy Brown album to be issued in the UK by Decca.
By the time of 1975's "Wire Fire" the band line-up had completely changed again!Read more ›
