The Spencer Davis Group was a mid 1960s British beat group from Birmingham, England. In their heyday the group consisted of Spencer Davis, Steve Winwood, Muff Winwood and Pete York. The group's first professional recording was a cover version of "Dimples", but they came to success at the end of 1965 with "Keep On Running", the group's first number one single. In 1966 they followed this with "Somebody Help Me" and "When I Come Home".By the end of 1966 , the group released two more hits, "Gimme Some Lovin'" and "I'm a Man". These tracks proved to be their two best-known successes, especially in the U.S.
In 1967, Winwood left to form Traffic; his brother Muff moved into the music industry as A&R man at Island Records. Despite the Winwoods' departure, the Spencer Davis Group continued performing and released more singles, though not repeating earlier successes. These included "Time Seller" in July 1967 and "Don't Want You No More". The group's last minor hit, "After Tea", in 1968 was released at the same time by the German band The Rattles, providing competition that led finally to a temporary stop to all activities of the band.
