Alchemy Pilot 159(2003)

Alex Harvey made his name in the 70's with his own band, the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, who were faned for Harvey's onstage antics and vocals. This CD covers his pre-SAHB days in the 60's. It is a mixed bag of rock 'n' roll including a storming run through ‘Jailhouse Rock', country styled ballads and folk tinged acoustic numbers like ‘Ballad of J.K.K.'. ‘The Electric Blues' is nearer to the SAHB with an up-tempo backing, funky horns and Harvey's distinctive vocals. But you have to be a real fan to listen to the twelve minutes plus ‘Medley', which has nursery rhymes sung by a female vocalist to which Harbey's weird vocals and sound effects are added. Not for the weak willed.

A fine representation of Alex Harvey's early years, with a few real gems in there. But it really is for fans only and not the casual listener.

***** Out of this world | **** Pretty damn fine |
*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
