The Spencer Davis Group

A Welsh guitarist, harmonica player, and vocalist, Spencer Davis became one of the elder statesmen of mid-'60s British rock. As part of the Spencer Davis Band, which formed in Birmingham in 1963, Davis scored chart-topping hits on both sides of the Atlantic, including "Keep on Running" and "Somebody Help Me" in the U.K. and a pair of Top Ten singles, "Gimme Good Lovin'" and "I'm a Man," in the United States. The band -- which also featured a teenaged Stevie Winwood on vocals, guitar, and organ, Muff Winwood (Stevie's brother) on bass, and Pete York on drums -- continued to mix commercial pop tunes and blues-inspired R&B until the Winwoods departed in 1967. Inspired by American blues musicians, including Leadbelly and Muddy Waters, Davis left a career as a college English professor to form the Rhythm & Blues Quartet. After performing a series of gigs at Birmingham nightclub, the Golden Eagle Pub, the group became the club's resident band. Soon after adding regular Tuesday night sessions at the Marquee in London to their schedule, they changed their name to the Spencer Davis Group.

Although he briefly kept the band together following the departure of the Winwood siblings and recorded two minor hits, "Mr. Second Class" and "Time Seller," Davis disbanded the group. After a short stint playing alongside guitarist Alun Davies, he then moved to California in 1970. Remaining active as a musician, he recorded a solo album that quickly went out of print, formed a new blues-pop band called Davis, York, Hardin & Fenwick in 1973, and then launched an acoustic blues band with Richard Landis and Peter Jameson. For much of the remainder of the '70s and early '80s, Davis worked behind the scenes. After serving as a consultant for a California video company, he worked as an independent producer and publicist for Island Records, where he helped to guide the early careers of Robert Palmer and Bob Marley, and served as head of A&R for a small Hollywood-based independent label. In addition to recording an impressive solo album, Crossfire, featuring guest appearances by Dusty Springfield, Flo & Eddie and Booker T. Jones, he produced the Spokane, WA-based group USK and Canada's Downchild Blues Band.

Forming a new version of the Spencer Davis Group in 1984, Davis toured throughout the United States, Europe, and the Middle East. By 1987, the group averaged more than 100 shows a year. Davis appeared as a guest during concerts by the Grateful Dead, Gary U.S. Bonds, Levon Helm, Bruce Springsteen, Peter "Herman" Noone, Downchild, and Alvin Lee.

Joining with ex-Iron Butterfly and Blues Image guitarist/vocalist Mike Pinera, ex-Rare Earth drummer/vocalist Peter Rivera, and ex-Sugarloaf bassist/vocalist Jerry Corbetta, Davis formed the Classic Rock All Stars in 1993. During the two years that he worked with the group, Davis was featured on an album, Double Live and performed in North America and Japan. Davis' original songs were featured in such films as Iron Eagle, Big Chill, Mr. Destiny, Days of Thunder, Mr. Holland's Opus, and Notting Hill. He recorded numerous advertising jingles in the mid-'90s and appeared in a co-starring role on the television comedy Married with Children. The following decade saw him continuining to record new material, and the solo effort So Far was issued in 2008. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

Greatest song ever, no matter who you are, where you live, or what you do, once you've heard this song you will never forget it. I heard this song when I was a little kid in the 80's and never knew who performed it until now. This song has always been my favorite song. I am so glad I know who sings it. You Rock Steve Winwood and Spencer Davis Band.
Spencer Davis should be inducted into the R&R Hall of Fame
hard to believe windwood was a teenager, belting that sound. First time I heard Gimme Some Lovin I thought the guy was a black guy in his thirties
IF MARTIN S.LIKED THE SPENCER DAVIS GROUP. THEN GET HIP
cl2006
Greatest intro in rock & roll!
mistycara13
Such an awesome song. It always reminds me of The Blues Brothers movie.
musta been just me......lol
thought it was common knowledge that Stevie started with this group......
bevbevan
Spencer Davis never marketed himself as Steve Winwood. When the group released Keep On Running, Davis had Featuring Steve Winwood added to the album due to Winwood's rising star and notoriety as a teenage phenom, which he indeed was. Davis is one the earliest promoters of British Blues that became standard by 1969 with the popularity of groups like Cream. Davis was a member of Blues Incorporated with Cyril Davies and Alexis Kornor.
The moron who called this band posers needs a music educati
I knew it was Stevie, but even so I thought Spencer Davis was a Black American for a long time too. I HATED it when he started marketing himself as "Steve."
Timeless,the Winwood's role was so prominent.Pa n d o r a rock's!!!
Agrees with Jim 100%!! Me too!!

Gimme Some Lovin'-- One of the top five party songs of all time. Back in the early '90's I went to 2 different Super Bowl parties. When this song came on at each party my wing buddy and I started dancing with the ladies that weren't watching the game. First party danced til halftime. Second party, other side of town, danced til end of game. I still couldn't tell you which game it was. Ladies loved it. I think the husbands were kinda pissed.
Whew! I thought I was the only one who thought Spencer Davis was a black American! What a voice. New to Pandora and luvin it.
Alright, embarrassed to admit it, but all these years I thought Spencer Davis was a black American. The Steve Winwood connection makes more sense now. Pandora continues to educate me.
Real music
Matt, Not the Young Rascals, it's the Crazy Elephant you're thinking about. "Gimme Gimme Good Lovin'" -- Bob
i love it and the kinks
Anybody else notice that the article lists "Gimme Some Lovin'" as "Gimme Good Lovin'"?? I think they are getting their signals crossed with the Young Rascals.
Little Stevie Winwood!
Black man stuck in a white Welsh's guy body...Power f u l , soulful voice.
What a bunch of posers!
When SD and Stevie Winwood were around? Nobody could touch 'em! (...cain't touch this!)
...and 'Dillpickle4 ' is right: Stevie be DAT White Soul Man.
Fo-ebbah!
dillpickle4
S.W. you are the white soul man!!

I love Steve Winwood. I never knew this was him singing in the Spencer Davis Group until I read about it in Rolling Stone.
Do all Welshmen look so sexy? Love the cowbell and rollicking rhythm on "Gimme Some Loving" and love Steve Winwood through the years.
