I always liked the band at the time and found their lyrical and musical style a change from other performers like Roxy Music, David Bowie, New York Dolls - all amazing in their own ways. With AH it is the sheer power of the vocals and some incredible together playing from the whole band.
The band is not one that I bought at the time but I have a never forgotten image of a mate at work singing Boston Tea Party in a way close to Alex and actually heard it recently and for me this is the high point of the whole 2 CDs, A truly inspired performance, with subtle changes in dynamics a thing of beauty - this light and shade being a general hallmark of many of the songs.
The opener Framed is a song that only Alex could pull off - amusing and with a performance to marvel at. I also like Delilah, Next and their version of School's Out.
I have to say that I do tend to play these tracks more, during the few days since bought it - but they are worth the price alone. I think that, like Nazareth, it is a few tracks that really grab me but these 2 discs are recommended as a reminder of what these sublime showmen could do.
