The Spencer Davis Group on A Whole Scene Going
While I was away in Liverpool something rather wonderful happened. A film about the Spencer Davis Group from 1966 appeared on Youtube.
After shots of them running (geddit?!) it features an interview with a genteel sounding Spencer Davis intercut with Steve Winwood playing the amazing Stevie's Blues.
David admits he enjoys being a pop star, but he also accepts that Winwood will move on one day. He did the following year, and Davis's days in the charts were over.
The film turns out to come from a series called A Whole Scene Going and was broadcast on 16 March 1966.
You can read the running order on the Wiped News site. Those were the days when England really did swing like a pendulum do.
