The Spencer Davis Group advertises Great Shakes
So what happened to the Spencer Davis Group after Steve Winwood left to get it together in the country with his new band Traffic and his brother Muff left to become a record industry executive?
They did not have much success, but some of their later singles - Time Seller for instance - sound pretty good today.
And they got involved in some more commercial ventures. They recorded the theme song for Magpie and here they are advertising Great Shakes, which seems to have been a funky version of Nesquik.
