Original released on LP Fontana TL 5242 (mono)
(UK, July 1965)
The Spencer Davis Group first album is basically a reflection of their early repertoire and very heavy on the R&B/soul standards. Dominated by covers of Ike & Tina Turner, the Coasters, John Lee Hooker, Little Walter, Brenda Holloway, and others, only three of the tunes are original. Two of these are written by Stevie Winwood, the other by Spencer Davis; Winwood's mid-tempo soul number "It Hurts Me So" is easily the best of them. A great album of Rhythm & Blues, presented here in its original mono sound.
