Keep on Running was recorded 50 years ago today

In January 1966 the Spencer Davis Group, fronted by a 17-year-old Steve Winwood, knocked the Beatles off the top of the charts with this song, which was written by Jackie Edwards.

It was recorded on 21 October 1965, which means it is exactly 50 years old.

I like to think it does not sound dated in the way that a song from 1915 must have done in 1965, Or am I just getting old.?

Jonathan, I totally agree with you - my favourite Rock song after all those years is still "Gimme some lovin'". It came as a big surprise to me when I found that a local Schwab group which calls itself "Ernest and the Hemingways" played it once. Now they have been playing it for more than 40 years. Can you imagine that?

I hope you don't mind that I've put this info on the Steve Winwood Facebook fan group:
