    Hear hear. Have heard it more times than I can count and never get tired of it.

    Hat tip for the moment in the film when the Blues Brothers give it a shot at Bob's Country Bunker and have the lights cut. That's how much that song rocks. :)

    RIP, Spencer.

    Over here ... even before the hits Spencer Davies was well known (as leader of the Spencer Davis Group) and along with Alexis Korner, John Mayall and Cyril Davies (no relation and I doubt he's even been heard of outside these shores) was a a key figure himself in priming the Blues/R&B explosion, again over here - as let's not forget ... you all had the real thing.

    I've no doubt the few bands able to play in bars here tonight - will have plenty of tribute material to hand. :(

    I love the SDG! I like all the different line ups, but it is hard beat the Winwood years. I only saw them once: Fenwick, Davis, Olson and Murray and they were very good.

    The 45 of I’m A Man was one of the first records I bought as a kid.
