Despite the title, Stewart only sings lead on one track, Can I Get a Witness, which is available on Rod's Storyteller boxed set. The much inferior Baldry is heard much more often, and the program also includes some instrumental showcases for Auger. Steampacket played at various clubs, theatres and student unions around the country, including supporting the Rolling Stones on their 1965 British tour. Because of contractual difficulties, however, they never formally recorded a studio or live album. Tracks from some demo tapes they recorded at a rehearsal in the Marquee Club would later be released under the deceptive titles, First of the Supergroups: Early Days and The First Supergroup: Steampacket Featuring Rod Stewart, to cash in on Stewart's success.

Steampacket have been rated as the first supergroup and I won't argue that one. The line-up was Rod StewartJulie DriscollLong John Baldry vocals, Brian Auger Hammond organ, Vic Briggs guitar, Richard Brown bass and Micky Waller drums. They were formed in 1965 and despite having a great reputation as a live act no official recordings were released at the time. Tapes made at a rehearsal at the Marquee were later released as an LP entitled The First Supergroup and a check of the tracks on that release show that the same are on this CD. Listen free to The Steampacket The First Supergroup. Group founder Long John Baldry had an eye for talent and brought in Members included a young Rod Stewart, female singer Julie Driscoll, organist Brian Auger and for a time even a young Reg Dwight was involved, later better known as Elton John. Rod Stewart self effacingly describes the act as Like a white Ike and Tina Turner show but nowhere near as good.

Deemed the first supergroup because of the prime line up , this re-working of the Dobie Gay classic owes more to the Ramsey Lewis Trio : The Steampacket featuring Rod Stewart Album: The First Supergroup Released: 1965 Sublime Frequencies USA 2010 Genre: Rock, RnB. The Steampacket was a British blues band of the 1960s, notable mainly for the fact that so many of its members already were, or subsequently became, famous as individual musicians. It was, arguably, the UK's first supergroup. The group was formed by Long John Baldry after the break-up of his previous group the Hoochie Coochie Men. It included Hoochie Coochie Men vocalist Rod Stewart, female vocalist Julie Driscoll, organist Brian Auger and guitarist Vic Briggs. Featuring vocalists Rod Stewart, Long John Baldry, and Julie Driscoll, as well as organist Brian Auger, misleading reissues of the group's demos bill the act as the first supergroup. That's simply not the case. Though the Steampacket played gigs at small venues around London as early as 1962, the nucleus of the band formed in mid-1965, after the demise of Baldry's backing outfit, the Hoochie Coochie Men. The gig was recorded by Gomelsky, and this somewhat low-fidelity album has subsequently been released by Charly Records and on CD by Repertoire SteampacketFirst R&B Festival
