Shake Down is the debut studio album by the British blues rock band Savoy Brown. It was released in 1967 (on Decca SKL 4883) under the name of Savoy Brown Blues Band and is mainly an album of covers, featuring three songs penned by blues singer Willie Dixon. In addition to Dixon, the band covers John Lee Hooker and . "I Ain't Superstitious" (Willie Dixon) – 3:25. Let Me Love You Baby" (Dixon) – 3:00.

That's "Jack the Toad," the title track from the most fun album Savoy Brown ever recorded. Imagine Phil Collins singing the blues, and you've got Jackie Lynton, who is veddy, veddy, veddy British. Jack the Toad is an essential piece of the Kim Simmond's catalog.

His voice is sharp but not overly exciting, yet it still presents "Coming Down Your Way" with enough emotion to make it the album's standout track. The addition of Ron Berg on percussion and Stan Saltzman's saxophone are worthy instrumental extensions, helping to boost the album's energy level another notch. Ride on Babe," "If I Want To," "Some People," and the title track are straight-sounding efforts, but they seem to lack the blues resilience of what the band is capable of. There's enough of Simmonds' talent to keep die-hard.
