Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Savoy Brown's "Poor Girl"

Kim Simmonds, lead guitarist of Savoy Brown, last shown here playing acoustic blues, is one of the great English rock and blues guitarists, one who has never been fully recognized. Above, Simmonds and company play "Poor Girl," whose lyrics speak of a rural woman who, after living the fast life in the city, returns to the country. Following the opening, Simmonds plays a dreamy solo (at 3:53) that gains in intensity.

I spoke of Simmonds on my most recent show as I played a couple of tracks from the new Savoy Brown album, 'Voodoo Moon'. He definitely doesn't get the recognition he deserves. Thanks for proving my point - even if I was a week or two behind.

Acclaim for Simmonds is long overdue-by decades!
