Music Note Re: Spencer Davis Group vs.Them!

I really like both bands, but I'm giving this one to Them because of their somewhat more bluesy sound and because they reached a higher high with Here Comes the Night.

I don't think you can get much more bluesier than this:

While Stevie may be "singing the blues" as the expression goes, where's the blues harp that's so often a prominent feature of Them's numbers?

Re: Spencer Davis Group vs. Them!

Spencer Davis....due mostly to Winwood. I like Morrison's later solo work but never really got into Them.

Winwood was about 18 when they made this video. If you closed your eyes, you'd swear you were listening to Ray Charles.

I can't seem to post a video on this site, but there's another one on YouTube of Winwood, about the same age, singing "Georgia On My Mind". That one sounds even more like Ray Charles.
