Sunburst Finish Be Bop Deluxe - Click Image To Play , A Sleep That Burns

I had bought the album my first from Be Bop Deluxe just before I saw them live at the Southend Kursall in February 1976. I was not disappointed it was one of those albums you would play over and over again, not a bad track on the whole LP. It's difficult to pick out a favourite track . Be Bop Deluxe had already played Chelmsford twice in the 70s once at the Chancellor hall and the other at the Civic centre, but I missed these as I was to young at the time. Part of the act at the Kursall when promoting the Sunburst Finish LP was Bill Nelson setting fire to his Guitar at the end of the show.

Hair Krishna -This Is The Sensational Alex Harvey Band

This is an LP from Alex Harvey released in Germany in 1972, but the SAHB band did not exist then. Strange that as the LP was originally entitled 'The Joker Is Wild' and credited to Alex Harvey in 1972. Then re released in 2001 with the SAHB line up on the front cover even though they did not play on the LP. I found the album for sale on a German record site in 2001. The tracks I have chosen to play are 'Hair Krishna'  and 'Flying Saucer Daughter' I have also included a video clip taken from a news item with Alex Harvey and some of the Hair cast promoting the musical in Hyde park London.
