    Still have my Raw Sienna vinyl on Parrot (NM), and still love it. Not saying it is my fave (that wouldn't be right!), it's the vinyl I have. Youlden's vocals rock.

    What's your fave? Or share your favorite that I left out!

    And any discussion about Savoy Brown is very welcome!


    Any thoughts on their output after Youlden's departure in 1970 after Raw Sienna?

    Well you can add your fave too. Thanks! I just decided to limit the poll to those above as they are the classic period to me.

    As I have stated elsewhere, I would love to see MOFI tackle these album for SACD release (it's time!) and possibly 2x45 rpm LP releases as well.

    IMO, the band started a decline after 'Looking In' and I quit buying their albums after 'Savage Return'. There are always good moments to be found but I just found the later stuff (Boogie Brothers, Wire Fire, Skin & Bone) to be 'more of the same'.

    I was always surprised that Chris Youlden sort of fell off the map after he left the band (unlike the Foghat boys). I like his two solo albums.

    I love "Raw Sienna", but "Blue Matter" was my real introduction to the band. I saw them play live at 'The Whiskey a Go Go" in Hollywood, CA in April 1969 when they were touring behind that record. Kim Simmonds guitar playing was "on fire" and I was convinced that they were the best blues rock band to come out of Britain at that time. That lasted until around February 1970 when I went to go hear Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac at the same venue. That show was absolutely riveting.

    I continued to follow Savoy Brown up through "Street Corner Talking". After that record they kind of lost their luster for me. Although they still had some moments on some of their later records. The Chris Youlden years are still my favorite.

    First rock concert I ever attended was Savoy on the `Looking In' tour - late 1970 or
    very early 1971. Loved that album and still play it regularly.

    Probably played " If I could see an end " a zillion times so " Hellbound Train " won my vote.

    Blue Matter for me....it was my first introduction to blues music, and had a big influence on me. And I've always loved the live half with Lonesome Dave on vocals.

    While I like all of the albums listed above (except their 1st which I haven't heard) my favorite on this list is Raw Sienna. I have numerous Savoy Brown US albums on the Parrot label.

    The Savoy Brown albums featuring Chris Youlden on vocals are especially good.

    The period of '69 to '72 is amazing.
    Get all of those to start with.

    Great later albums:
    Lions Share and Skin & Bone.

    Blue Matter. It's got one of my favorite Savoy Brown tracks "Train To Nowhere".

    Street Corner Talking; their only vinyl I own. Had to have it after hearing Tell Mama played over the PA between bands at Winterland. The only way to fly...

    Now have all but one or two of the others on CD, along with some Foghat on both vinyl and CD.

    Street Corner Talking for me. Introduced to them at the "Cheap Thrills Back to School Special" at Massey Hall in Toronto. Great show, but the opener (Atomic Rooster) cancelled and we say Myles and Lenny instead. The crowd was pumped for Savoy Brown and the Dave Walker incarnation delivered the goods. Bought Street Corner Talking after that and most of there other releases pre and post but SCT is still my favorite.

    Raw Sienna but I like them all and Lion's Share as well.

    I like Chris Youlden and Dave Walker both as vocalists for the band.
