I guess we will never know why with the lone exception of Cleveland, how this band never cracked open the U.S. and became huge. Perhaps too unique? Maybe too theatrical? Either way, I have no clue. This band had chops, songs and charisma in spades and created something that was genuinely unique and completely original. This package has what many way believe to be their strongest two records, and I'd probably agree with them. "The Impossible Dream" opens like a big-budget Hollywood movie filled with dynamic musical swells and combines Broadway with hard-rock flair as the sound of the "Hot City Symphony" plays out in two parts. Through the entire album you have this interesting balance between heavy riffing and show-tune pop and the passionate Alex Harvey pulls it off brilliantly. Guitarist Zal Cleminson, one of the more underrated axemen of all time, is very inventive and really adds just the right amounts of flash and restraint the songs need while bassist Chris Glen and keyboardist and drummer Hugh and Ted McKenna are solid as a rock. But the real gem here is the closer. "Anthem" still gives me chills every time I hear it and that alone is worth the price of this purchase.......but thankfully the rest of the stuff here is incredible.

Unfairly in the shadow of it's predecessor, 1975's follow-up "Tomorrow Belongs To Me" is still an amazing album full of great songs. Opener "Action Strasse" really goes for it with it's very menacing guitar riff which leads into the slick groove of "Snake Bite". It seems that this album seemed to take on a more literary approach, albeit one mixed with Prog-Rock and two big examples of this are "The Tale of the Giant Stoneater" and band favorite "Give My Compliments to the Chef".

This stuff is so go good, it hurts. They were great live, great in the studio, though the production on their albums should have been better. Just buy this and everything else and open up your mind and ears and take yourself to someplace you've never been and you will never want to leave. I just wish Alex was still alive and they were still making albums. Two of my favorite players of all time are in this band, Zal Clemsion-guitar, (who also was in Nazareth and two of the best albums they ever di.)Chris Glenn-Bass(who was also in MSG).

Had these albums back in the day, and though they are a product of their times, they sound just dandy in 2016. Not a fan of this series' packaging... my only quibble. Not bothered about the lack of extra tracks as they usually detract from the flow of the album... and are crap anyway.

These are two of the best albums to have ever come out of the hands and mouths of musicians who knew exactly what they were doing. No diva or rap shlock here! Original, accomplished, unique, diverse and simply mesmerizing! Rock on, Alex.

Finally I found this '75 album on CD, it is classic.
Every song is great. Harvey, though not very famous in US
had a big underground following here. "Snake Bite" guitar by Zal Cleminson is venomously catchy. In surround sound on disc cranked up "Give my Compliments to the Chef" gives new meaning to a satisfactory meal. Everytime I play any songs from these albums people notice and ask who it is. I highly recommend you

The solid two albums on 2-CD sets chronicling eight of nine albums of The Sensational Alex Harvey Band - during Alex Harvey's lifetime - cranks into high gear with The Impossible Dream (1974) and Tomorrow Belongs to Me (1975).

Harvey is at his storytelling best as his alter-ego - the comic book hero Vambo - takes center stage in the 1974 album through Hot City Symphony Part I: Vambo, with Hot City Symphony Part II: Man in the Jar delivering a shocking conclusion to the proceedings. Sergeant Fury, Tomahawk Kid and Anthem are sonic gems, but Money Honey/The Impossible Dream is the real gem; Harvey again shows how he pulls and tugs from various genres of pop music to deliver his performance art.

One of two releases in 1975 (w/ Live), Tomorrow Belongs to Me is as close as the band got to deliver their critically-acclaimed live show in the confines of a studio. Guitarist Zal Cleminson pumps out a wicked groove on Snake Bite, while Harvey has an epic story to tell on The Tale of the Giant Stone Eater. Give My Compliments to the Chef, Action Strasse and Shark's Teeth finds Harvey propelling things to extraordinary heights.

"Give my regards to Sergeant Fury," indeed.
