Ένα από τα εμβληματικά ονόματα του βρετανικού blues rock των middle-late ‘60s υπήρξαν [και …εξακολουθούν να υπάρχουν, 55 χρόνια από την ίδρυσή τους] οι Savoy Brown του κιθαρίστα – αρμονικίστα – τραγουδιστή Kim Simmonds, μοναδικού σταθερού μέλους του γκρουπ.
Ακούμε το ομώνυμο τραγούδι από το άλμπουμ τους Hellbound Train των early ‘70s.

Savoy Brown, the band of guitarist – harmonica player – singer Kim Simmonds were one of the emblematic names of the British blues – rock movement of the ‘60s. They continue till this day, 55 years after their formation, Simmonds being the only one of the original members.
We hear the eponymous song from their early ‘70s album, Hellbound Train.

❝ Hellbound Train I’m on it’s track
Too late now to turn my back
Conductor coming ticket in his hand
Come to claim my soul
Take me to his land
Hellbound Train I been so wrong
Too late now I’m moving on
Conductor standing watch in his hand
Got to get aboard take you to his land
I’m going down the road on the Hellbound Train
Take a long look lady ’cause you won’t see me again
Take a last look lady, yes hard and long
‘Cause I’m going down the road on the Hellbound Train
Hellbound Train driving slow
Move on down to the Hell below
Conductor please won’t you lend a hand?
Got to get on board take me to your land
Yes I know I’ve been so wrong
Too late now I’m moving on
Hellbound Train I’m on it’s track
Moving down I can’t look back
I’m going down the road on the Hellbound Train
Take a long look lady ’cause you won’t see me again
Take a last look lady, yes hard and long
‘Cause I’m going down the road on the Hellbound Train
I’m going down the road on the Hellbound Train
Take a long look lady ’cause you won’t see me again
Take a last look lady, yes hard and long
‘Cause I’m going down the road on the Hellbound Train
Lost and flying down the road on the Hellbound Train
Lost and flying down the road on the Hellbound Train
Hand and hand with the devil

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

  1. Another group I hadn’t heard for years. Speaking of Hell Bound Trains, I remember being on one of the deep down Metro Lines in Madrid, Spain that I had to descend into the depths of hell to catch it. While on route to my destination, everyone packed into the train car like sardines, there was a power failure. We were stuck in pitch blackness, heating up fast from all the warm bodies all packed together. Fortunately, everyone stayed calm, and people started telling jokes, but it really was a Hell Bound Train, but it wasn’t moving on its tracks.
