Savoy Brown – Ain’t Done Yet (Quarto Valley Records)

Well! I'm mortified! As an (almost) life-long rock fan, how I've missed out on this seminal blues-rock band completely floors me!

Every song on this, their second album, is an original, mostly backed with multi-part harmony vocals. Traditional and quirky at the same time, upbeat and joyful yet lackadaisically laid-back, there’s no doubt this is..
