About this item
The remarkable career of Scotland's Alex Harvey is one laced with tragedy and wild creativity. His brother Les, guitarist with Stone The Crows, died on stage in the early 70s and the accident seemed to galvanise Alex into a burst of creative energy, forming a new band, one that cemented his own legend as leader of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band. His career began in the early 60s, (he won a competition as Scotland's answer to Tommy Steele), through a stint in "Hair" and then the SAHB's always fighting the bottle and fate. This comprehensive double is a perfect overview of the career of one of rock's true characters.
