It’s a shame that this hasn’t been extended because it’s just 46 minutes long but what there is shows the unique style of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band at their best, performing live.
Back in the 1970s they were a cult band when people loved them or hated them and it’s a shame that they seem to have faded from memory as I rarely see any reference to them in the music press.
Part of the reason is that Alex Harvey died on 4 February 1982 but strangely that can boost the past reputation.
Playing on the album are:
Alex Harvey – Lead vocals, guitar
Zal Cleminson – Guitar
B.J. Cole – Pedal steel guitar
Hugh McKenna – Keyboards, synthesizer
Chris Glen – Bass guitar
