Top singles from the past…

14 April 2021

Today 55 years ago, on 14 April 1966 British beat band SPENCER DAVIS GROUP,
named after its Welsh founder and guitarist Spencer Davis (R.I.P.), topped the
UK Singles Chart with SOMEBODY HELP ME. A song written by Jamaican musician
Jackie Edwards.

It was also the first band of mighty soul voice Steve Winwood – only 16 at the time.

Watch this pretty cool live version from a
German TV show (with wunderkind Winwood
on the right of your screen)…
