As other reviewers have said, the Spenser Davis group is much more important than its short life on the musical stage would seem to indicate.
I almost think that the group really deserves a set of all their recordings rather than a 'Best of'.
The Spencer Davis Group's first lp was released in May 1965, which means the tracks,(some of which are here), were sung by a -sixteen- year-old Steve Winwood, (whose entire output with the band ended by the age of eighteen!).

 Climax Blues Band
Many sixties groups were motivated by an almost evangelical zeal to further the cause of one favoured musical form, irrespective of personal popularity or financial gain.
Tired of waiting for something to happen, Cooper and Haycock decided to re-orientate their stylistic determination towards a second wave of British Blues that was fermenting on the college circuit as it had earlier in the decade.
While still semi-professional, the group were signed in 1969 to E.M.I. The first two albums were released on the company's Parlophone subsidiary before the transference of the outfit onto the 'progressive' Harvest label for a further hat-trick of LPs.

Kind of a baffling lot, EMI's 15-track The Best of the Spencer Davis Group is pretty representative if you don't want to go the full nine yards with the two-CD Eight Gigs a Week complete anthology on Island.
And "Stevie's Blues" could be a primer on every Brit blues lyrical and musical cliché you'll ever have to suffer through (except length, but it was plenty long for a single B-side).
It features the key songs and shows the different sides to the Spencer Davis Group, but the tracks seem to be haphazardly thrown together, as if no one took the trouble to look at and program the selections to hang together as a whole.

COMMON sense would suggest The Yardbirds are decades past their sell-by date - after all, they are down to two original members and guitar greats Clapton, Page and Beck are long gone.
"This is a far cry from the Twisted Wheel," quipped Spencer Davis, contrasting the Bridgewater Hall's grandeur with the Manchester club that helped cement his group's reputation.

The debut album by the group, also known as The Angry Young Them, and half its tracks make it a dead-on rival to the Stones' debut album.
The covers of Chris Kenner and the Contours are eminently forgettable, but their original songs are solid British invasion pop.

This talented outfit was put together in Birmingham by Davis although the group was dominated musically by the amazing and very young Steve Winwood.

Their next three bluesy singles did reach the lower part of the chart but it was the much more commercial 'Keep On Running' that allowed them to hit the big time.

The Spencer Davis Group - Autumn '66: Reviews, Track Listing, Audio Clips, and more
At the peak of their popularity, the Spencer Davis Group [+]'s albums were considerably less impressive than their hits and a bit thin on imagination, although they were never less than competent.
Highlights are their second British number one hit "Somebody Help Me," the decent group original "High Time Baby," Winwood's organ-based instrumental "On the Green Light," and "When I Get Home," which (like "Somebody Help Me") was a hit in Britain, but not the U.S. Posted by Richie Unterberger [+]
