5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational!! 6 Mar 2002
By Robert Frampton VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Probably the two best albums from one of the very best live acts Britain has ever produced.
I remember seeing them supporting The Who at one of their Charlton football ground concerts in the mid-70s; it had been pouring with rain pretty much the whole day, but when SAHB burst onto the stage, it made the whole experience of almost-drowning worthwhile!
In an earlier era, Alex Harvey would have been a vaudeville comic. As a singer, his gruff, almost-spoken singing style lent an air of drama to songs that were already packed with incident and humour. Just listen to 'Hot City Symphony', Tomahawk Kid' or 'Tomorrow Belongs to Me' on this package to get an idea.
Couple that with Zal Cleminson's clownlike make up (and his razor-sharp, staccato guitar-playing) and a rhythm-section second to none, and you have a killer rock band.
The albums Alex Harvey made with SAHB are a potent testimony to a (still) much underrated singer, and you should own the two albums on this package as well as 'Next' and 'Framed' if you want to know what you've been missing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars but not the best of SAHB 31 July 2007
By Neil
Format:Audio CD
Like an earlier reviewer, I was at the Who concert at Charlton Athletic's football ground (I read recently that it was the loudest concert ever - no wonder my ears were ringing for three days afterwards). SAHB were excellent. I also saw them at Liverpool Empire where they were even better, playing as the headline act. I have to disagree with the two earlier reviewers, though, as I think that Next was SAHB's best album.

These two albums do contain some great tracks though. On The Impossible Dream, 'Anthem' is an absolute cracker. It's the sort of thing that would have football crowds holding their scarves aloft and swaying in time to the music. It is really moving. On Tomorrow Belongs To Me, Action Strasse, Give My Compliments To The Chef and the title track are all superb.

I was very sad when Alex Harvey died. He was a wonderful showman. Buy these albums (and the Framed/Next package) and have yourself a wild time. The Live/Penthouse Tapes package is not as attractive. The live album is good but the Penthouse Tapes was a bit iffy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond praise 16 Feb 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
These two albums are the cream of SAHB's brief spell as the most origingal and colourful band of the mid seventies. While other artists from the era such as Bowie or Roxy Music had a certain cleverness or style, they rarely evinced the delight and craft that SAHB displayed.
Few albums have a better opener than "Action Strasse" , a more intriguing and epic track than "The tale of the giant stoneater" or wonderful singalongs such as "Sergeant fury" and "The Tomahawk Kid"
Marvellous.

5.0 out of 5 stars two of the best 3 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD
Two of the best rock albums of the 1970,s brilliant songs of which played live they were taken to a differant level. Tomahawk Kid, Vambo, Hot City Symphony,etc,etc, interspersed with songs that were not just fillers. why this man was not better rewarded for his contribution to british music i will never know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot City was too hot for Daisy! 13 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
FAB SAHB! 2 great albums and the incredible "Man in the Jar", a rock song full of dynamics that could have been a great gangster movie, or was it already! Imagery beyond the norm from the magic storyteller from Glasgow. Buy it!
