Qui se souvient aujourd'hui de l'écossais Alex Harvey (1935 - 1982) ? Bien qu'il ait commencé sa carrière musicale dès 1954 en jouant, comme tout "branché" britannique à l'époque, du skiffle, et malgré ses enregistrements épars des années 1960, sur le mode blues et R&B, c'est dans les années 1970 qu'Alex Harvey accède à une notoriété certaine.
En 1972, l'année de la mort de son frère Leslie (électrocuté en scène par sa guitare), Alex Harvey forme le très solide groupe "The Sensational Alex Harvey Band" ("SAHB" pour les intimes), avec des anciens du groupe de rock progressif Tear Gas : Zal Cleminson à la guitare, Chris Glen à la basse, et les cousins Hugh et Ted McKenna aux claviers et à la batterie respectivement.
Avec le "SAHB", entre 1972 et 1978, Alex Harvey propose un mix séduisant entre le glam rock de l'époque (New York Dolls, Alice Cooper, T-Rex, David Bowie), ses racines pop et R&B des années 1940 et suivantes, et son amour du théâtre (il a joué dans la comédie musicale 'Hair').
Ce double Cd est extrait d'une collection rééditant deux par deux et sans aucun "bonus track", les LP du "SAHB". Il regroupe le seul "live album" édité du vivant du "SAHB" avec l'album studio qui a suivi de manière relativement précipitée, selon les habitudes des maisons de disque de l'époque, comme l'expliquent les notes du livret.

LIVE :
En 1975, le groupe à fait une entrée dans les classements de meilleures ventes au Royaume-Uni (en atteignant la septième place ) avec une version arrangée de la ballade de Tom Jones " Delilah " issue de ce Live.
Mise à part ce point d'orgue , on retrouve quelques classiques comme l'énorme " The Faith Healer " mais personnellement , je trouve la set-list un peu courte et pas forcément la mieux choisie ...
Mais pas question de faire le difficile et contentons nous d’apprécier ce " Live " du plus incroyable groupe écossais de tous les temps car que ce soit en albums studio ou sous une version en concert , poser un vinyle sur sa platine du SAHB est toujours un moment jubilatoire .

THE PENTHOUSE TAPES :
Cet album de reprises et de morceaux originaux sorti en 1976 a permis aux membres du groupe de donner libre cours à leur fantaisie .
C'est une curiosité ne serait-ce que par les titres repris , "Love Story " (Superbe !) de Jethro tull , " Schooll Out " (superbement repris) de Alice Cooper pour les plus connus (en ce qui me concerne) .
Au moins , j'aurais appris une chose avec ce disque : Vanina , de Dave est une reprise de Del Shannon , rocker des années 60 , dont le plus gros succès, Runaway sorti en 1961 fut donc remis au gout du jour par le néerlandais dans les années 70 (le coquin ...).
"Gamblin' Bar Room Blues" , reprise de Jimmy Rodgers est particulièrement sympathique , très savoureux et étonnant , tout comme le reste de cet album qui finalement est une sorte d'hommage à tous les groupes qui ont influencé Alex Harvey dans son existence . Bien lui en a pris , pour notre plus grand plaisir !

Format: CD
The Sensational Alex Harvey band was formed in 1972, when a thirty eight year old Alex Harvey decided he should have one more crack at the world of rock superstardom. Alex's brother Les had died that year, having been electrocuted on stage by a malfunctioning microphone, with his band `Stone The Crows' in Swansea. Despite a ten year age difference Les and Alex had been close; although devastated by his young brother's death it made Alex even more determined to succeed. He went back to his native Glasgow, Scotland, to check out a bunch of young tearaways who had formed themselves into a hard rock act called `Tear Gas'. Words were spoken, ideas exchanged, and Alex persuaded these young lads to become his band.
In 1968 he had joined as guitarist the London based orchestra pit for Gerome Ragni and James Rado's iconoclastic musical `Hair'. This would have a heavy influence on Alex, making him more aware of the theatrical side of rock music and why it was so important to put on a good show to back up your music. As Alex himself once said he formed `The Sensational Alex Harvey Band' and in turn invented Pantomime rock, with plenty of `boo and hiss' and `look behind you'.
Tear Gas was quickly transformed from the normal long haired rockers in their jeans, boots and T-shirts to characters in Alex's show.
Of course on stage out front was the man himself, Alex Harvey, the first rock `n' roll pirate. Skin tight jeans, dirty red handkerchief hanging out his back pocket, a black and white hooped T-shirt, with Alex's huge head sticking out the neck (he needed a big head to store up all his creative thoughts), a mop of unruly jet black hair on his head, all topped off with a swaggering black great coat.
Zal Cleminson, a staggeringly good lead guitarist in his own right, was persuaded into a skin-tight green cat suit and clown's white slap on his face, which made every gurn of his face during his searing solos turn him from one minute into something quite comical, to the next something quite sinister, the perfect foil for the band leader.
On the other side of the stage with a bass guitar in his hand was Chris Glenn, who would be attempting his Elvis impersonations, but actually coming across more as one of Elvis's body guards. So while all the girls flocked around Alex and Zal, everybody kept their distance from the mean looking bloke on the left.
Behind the drums was Ted McKenna. Every band has to have a rock on which to build on and Ted McKenna was the rock that the `Sensational Alex Harvey Band' was built on, and absolute no nonsense drummer who could also turn his hand to any of Alex's little idiosyncrasies.
On keyboards, holding the whole thing together musically, no matter how far off on a tangent the others went, Hugh McKenna always kept the ship on an even keel, even though he always did look a lot more like a school music teacher than a rock `n' roll star.
So the scene was set for fame, fortune and frolics. Immediately the band started touring, playing anywhere that would have them, all the time working up their act. Vertigo signed them, and released the first album `Framed' (1973), which met with great critical acclaim but little else.
It was on the road, though, that the word was being spread. Seeing that they had a hit band on their hands the executives from Vertigo, smelling money, put the band back in the studio with famous glam rock producer Phil Wainman and gave them an unheard of in those days month off the road to record their next album. When it came out, `Next' (1973) was not an instant hit, but slowly crept up the charts. After more touring, appearing at the Reading Rock Festival, touring as support to Slade, and appearing on the British rock show `The Old Grey Whistle Test', it finally went into the British top thirty in early 1974.
That year the band set about consolidating their position at the top of the rock `n' roll tree, touring all over Europe and releasing another album, `The Impossible Dream' (1974) which went straight into the Top Twenty album charts.
But it was 1975 where they hit pay dirt. `The Sensational Alex Harvey Band' was the largest grossing live act in the U.K. Completing two extensive tours, headlining the Reading Rock Festival, releasing two Top Twenty albums (`Tomorrow Belongs To Me' and a fabulous `Live' album), plus a Top Five hit single with their version of `Delilah'. I do not think that `Top Of the Pops' ever recovered from having this lot on.
After the homecoming Christmas dates in Glasgow at the end of 1975, the band should have been given some time off to recover, particularly their leader. But the record company wanted more product, and the band was put back in the studio. With not much material written for a new album, the decision was made to put out what they had, and fill the rest up with some of the cover versions that they used to play in their live set. This may not sound like such a good idea, but what actually came out as `The Penthouse Tapes' (1976) is a real fun rock `n' roll album.
The album opens up with a fat slice of Glam Rock Alex style in `I Wanna Have You Back', followed by another band original `Jungle Jenny' which is possibly the naughtiest song ever recorded. Then who can resist the band's version of Del Shannon's `Runaway'? A throwaway rock through I. Anderson's `Love Story' and then perhaps the album's highlight, Alex preaches to his boys and girls that when you get freedom within the sweaty grasp of your hand you should hang onto it and not pollute the water supply. The band then breaks into a rampant version of Alice Cooper's `Schools Out', a brilliant piece of musical theatre.
Next up is one of the better known songs in Pattaya, `Goodnight Irene', a Jackie Lomax song. The famous Pattaya Tahitian Queen Rock `n' Roll bar plays this every night to let us all know to go home. Well, Woody better not get his hands on this version, as it starts off in its traditional dreamy manner, but in the hands of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band it is of course soon twisted round into a vicious rocker that would soon have the aisles of Tahitian Queen rocking again.
`Say Your Mine (Every Cowboy Song)' is a gentle parody on Country and Western featuring some fine pedal steel guitar from B.J. Cole. `Gamblin' Bar Room Blues' is sung with such conviction that perhaps somebody from the record company should have realized there was a problem lurking just under the surface. With tongue firmly in cheek the band then rocks through the Osmond's `Crazy Horses', although Alex himself had very serious concerns about the environment having already penned `The Tale Of The Giant Stoneater' from the `Tomorrow Belongs To Me' album, which dealt with green issues. (Those Crazy Horses were actually cars spouting carbon monoxide.) The album closes in style with a lovely tilt at Irvine Berlin's `Dancing Cheek to Cheek'. You just have to remember which cheeks Alex is talking about here.
The Penthouse Tapes charted well, but `The Sensational Alex Harvey Band' never recovered. Alex left the band in 1978 and the band imploded in his absence. Alex formed a new band, but never recovered his former glories and tragically Alex Harvey died of a heart attack while on tour in Europe in 1982, the day before his 47th birthday.
But at the height of their powers, his band was truly sensational.
You can buy `The Penthouse Tapes' as a two for the price of one now. So you get the `Penthouse Tapes' and `Live' for your buck: get onto [...] right now.

The criminally overlooked Sensational Alex Harvey Band (SAHB for short) were a devastating band. Period. The show, the sound, everything you could have possibly wanted or never even knew you wanted was in this band. The simple answer for these guys was to just record a live show right? Well, they did it. However, as it is with some other bands of the era, they decided to skip the double album route and release a single album relatively light on material. Is it bad? Not one bit, but as a standalone disc there isn't nearly enough material to grab on to. 7 tracks including their single breakthrough "Delilah" give you a great sample of the band's power but that's just it, a sample. A double live album could have broken this band like KISS but the option was never taken. Shame.

The other album in this collection is their oddly assembled "The Penthouse Tapes", 2/3 consisting of covers from 30's-50's esque standards ("Runaway", "Cheek To Cheek"), songs from current rock artists ("School's Out", "Love Story"), old blues/folk songs ("Gamblin' Bar Room Blues", "Goodnight Irene") and the OSMONDS????? It really runs the gamut in terms of material here but it's a worthwhile addition to your catalog. This coupled with the live album make this a pretty cool piece of work, but as standalones they lack the full punch of a full studio album or a double-live album.

HASH(0x91c02018) étoiles sur 5 Give my compliments to the chef 9 janvier 2003
Par William Wood - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Although worth owning for the Live disc alone this is a strange coupling."Penthouse Tapes" is generally regarded as a weak album while "Live" shows the Sensational Alex Harvey Band in all their glory."The Faith Healer" and "Tomahawk kid" ( based on incidents from the book Treasure Island) are dazzling slices of controlled chaos and group synergy while "give my compliments to the chef" is one of the best peices of live rock music available,it's surrealistic description of singer Alex Harvey's youth is simply not to be missed.
Musically the band are on fire here and it really seems a shame that they were unable to expand their fanbase and reap the rewards they so deserved.
In all I think it would have been agood idea to simply expand the live album with some extra tracks, as I am sure that they exist(as the Who did with "Live at Leeds") ,rather than tying this disc to an inferior one.

Having been completely taken in by this troupe of travelling Scottish gypsy's upon seeing them 'live' on TV in the mid-70's and running out to get all their albums you can only guess how excited I was to get the new 'Live' album upon its release. Whoa, talk about being knocked off your socks! This is a very powerful and entertaining document encapsulating the live phenomenon that was the Sensational Alex Harvey Experience. My only wish that this was a double album. Skynyrd, Frampton and Kiss' double album put them over the top and I am convinced that it coulda done the same for these guys. But I digress, this is just simply a piece of music history here. Own it. An interesting addition is 'The Penthouse Tapes', a collection of fairly decent covers. Much of it worthy. I like the Jethro Tull song but could do without their 'School's Out' version.
