Savoy Brown: Band Of A Thousand Changes

John Pidgeon, Let It Rock, December 1972

SAVOY BROWN CAME up on John Mayall's coat tails playing supporting gigs with him at the start of the blues boom. The boom, which occurred in the second half of the sixties, produced a crop of bands doing the 'Fleetwood Mac-Chicken Shack-John Mayall Can't Fail Blues' to the twelve endless bars of 'Dust My Broom'.
