This review is from: Hot City - The 1974 Unreleased Album [Digisleeve] (Audio CD)
Well, what can I say !! I first time I saw SAHB was at Birmingham Town Hall in 1973 and was blown away by them. The finale was Anthem with the lovely lady and the Pipers. This album would have been made around that time and is an album which should not have been shelved in this form. The tracks aren't just alternate versions - the mixing and sound quality is better than "The Impossible Dream" and the arrangements include a lot more brass which is quite meaty. Being a sax player myself, I really appreciated this. These songs almost sound like live versions so I would recommend any SAHB enthusiast to get this album for their collection. It is not just a collectors item for the sake of it, it is a great album in its own right. Enjoy !! Yo Ho Ho !!
