Editorial Reviews

2011 two CD collection from the Scottish Rock legend. The larger than life Glaswegian cut his teeth in Hamburg, supported The Beatles and made his impact on the London's West End before finding chart success with the Sensational Alex Harvey Band. Famed for their energetic performances and Harvey's onstage antics, they hit #7 with the live version of Tom Jones' `Delilah'. This collection covers Alex Harvey's entire Career, from the Alex Harvey Soul Band to The Sensational Alex Harvey Band. Includes the live versions from his time in the Hair musical pit band, now considered the definitive recordings. Also includes BBC sessions and a TOTP performance. Spectrum.

Format: Audio CD
It's a damn shame North Americans aren't up on Alex Harvey. His SAHB (Sensational Alex Harvey Band) albums for Mercury/Vertigo in the seventies are drop-dead rock classics worth savoring if you're into the likes of AC/DC, Slade, BTO, Bad Company, etc. Thanks to Zal Cleminson on guitars, Chris Glenn (bass) and brothers Hugh and Ted McKenna (keys and drums), these LPs were kinetic, electric, frenetic, and downight successful in "merrie olde inglande". Harvey's powerful and gruff voice served as template for many a singer in the 80s and beyond while the band's on-stage antics were legendary. Harvey himself was a born showman and his 1960s musical theater roles helped solidify his rep as a Performer's Performer. At the start of the noughties, Universal UK released the 5 star 2 CD anthology "Considering The Situation" which covered all - and I DO mean ALL - of the bases for newcomers or those who wanted a top-notch collection for their cars or cottage. Sadly, that set is no more. A victim of the "back catalogue delete wars". Instead, Universal has opted to release "The Best Of The Sensational Alex Harvey". Sonically, the remastered sound is bright and spot-on (mayhap the same masters were used, no?). And, pretty much all of his musical chronology is here (though NOT in chronological order). But Universal's Spectrum label is a budget series of releases and - like all budget priced collections - this set doesn't...quite...give it all to you, or explain it all on the back cover. So, for fans or neophytes wanting to experience SAHB for the first time, a brief word regarding content. Disc 1 is culled from SAHB albums originally released on Vertigo. Key moments like "Giddy Up A Ding Dong", "Snake Bite" and "River Of Love" are present.Read more ›

I bought this CD here, after reading several other reviews, and love it. There is no finer live song than Delilah as it rocks the house.I loved SAHB during my college years and the feeling has been rekindled.Bands such as SAHB and the progressive era, saved many of us from the Disco era. I do wish that they could have included truly missed Sargent Fury and one of my fav's, Shark's Teeth. I still enjoy Alex's creativity with the English language and his Scottish accent.
