Five stars but not the best of SAHB
on 31 July 2007
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.
