The Spencer Davis Group

His ferocious soul-drenched vocals belying his tender teenage years, Stevie Winwood powered the Spencer Davis Group's three biggest U.S. hits during their brief life span as one of the British Invasion's most convincing R&B-based combos.

Guitarist Davis formed the band with Winwood on organ, his brother Muff Winwood on bass, and drummer Peter York. Signing on with producer Chris Blackwell, the quartet got their first hit (the blistering "Keep on Running") from another of Blackwell's acts, West Indian performer Jackie Edwards. After topping the British charts in 1965, the song struggled on the lower reaches of the US Hot 100.

The group's two hottest sellers were self-penned projects. "Gimme Some Lovin'" and "I'm a Man" were searing showcases for the adolescent Winwood's gritty vocals and blazing keyboards and the band's pounding rhythms. Although they burned up the charts even on the other side of the ocean in 1967, the quartet never capitalized on their fame with an American tour. At the height of their power, Winwood left to form Traffic, leaving Davis without his dynamic frontman. The bandleader focused on producing other acts, including a Canadian ensemble called the Downchild Blues Band during the early '80s. ~ Bill Dahl

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will be injured (you won't die) in two days. Now that you have started reading this don't stop. Post this on at least five other stations/ song's in the next 143 minutes. When you're done press f6 and your lover's name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary this actually works

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 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."

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.

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.
