I Bought FRAMED and NEXT in 1974 - nearly thrity years down the line and they still sound as good now - this was SAHB before they got really theatrical and boy did they rock - Hole in her stocking is still one of my favourite all time records - as an introduction to the SAHB these two together are briliant - they went on to show what a great band they were with the concept type albums that followed and the brilliant stage shows - I saw them 5 times and each time was a tremedous experience - it's about time they became available to a much wider audience

I first heard sahb in about 1974 after picking up next in a record store in cardiff took it home and played it for the first time and it blew me away i later found framed in a second hand store. I raved about sahb to all who would listen and quietly built up a small army of converts the highlight was to see the band live at the old cardiff capital in 1975 last year i was given next/framed cd for my birthday and was over the moon anyone who loves raw rock at its best should buy. i always have and will forever remain a loyal fan Geoff Andrews

This rocks! (Revised)
In 1957 Alex Harvey won a competition to find Scotland's answer to Tommy Steele, winning that title gave him work as a backing singer for Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran, so by the time he picked up a backing band called "Tear Gas" in summer of 1972 Alex had been working in Show business for nearly 30 years.
For when Alex and his band now renamed "The Sensational Alex Harvey Band" went into the studio to record the first of these re-issued albums "Framed" the sessions where completed in a week.
With it's no-frills rock approach with a twist of blues and with only 2 cover versions that being the title track Framed written by the legendary song writing team of Mike Leiber and Jerry Stroller and the song "I just want to make love to you" written by Willie Dixon both old blues songs Alex had taken and given a new lease of life with his venomous delivery that spat at you as he sang the lyrics.
The rest of the tracks were self-penned between Mr Harvey and the band, one of the stand out tracks for me is the self penned song "Isobel Goudie" which is split into 3 parts (Part1 My lady of the night) (Part2 Coitur Interruptus) (Part 3 Virgin and the Hunter) I think the titles are pretty much self explanatory and the closing track gives a good indication of what coming on the following album, "St Anthony" is a full blown boogie-woogie song with metallic sounding wah-wah guitars.
The following years follow-up album "Next" had expanded the sound of the band by the addition of strings and a brass section and the use of a custom made contraption called a "Tootlebug Drone" this was made for Alex in 60's by electronics wizard Ashley Tootle, this gave the track "Faith Healer" it's sinister throb that ran all the way through the song.

I already have Framed on Vinyl, but bought this chiefly for a studio version of Faith Healer on Next. It's longer that the one playing on Planet Rock at the moment, but none the worse for that. Other reviews here already rightly praise the musicality etc of the band, so I'll just add that the CD quality is good enough to really bring out the music.

I like the Next Album but the Framed album isn't as good!
I would recommend this to mostly older people as it is music from their era but as a 20 year old myself, I do like this music, it's really different and unique :)
My favourite tracks on the Next album are Swampsnake and The last of the teenage idol (parts 1-3)
