Upstarts: The Sensational Alex Harvey Band
Jon Tiven, Circus Raves, December 1974
Alex Harvey is practically old enough to be your father: 38 years of rocknroll soul, to be exact. Of course he isnt necessarily the oldest man in rocknroll, with Elvis Presley, Ian Hunter and Leon Russell being very secretive about their grey hairs (and Ray Manzareks a good 35 years). But youd expect a veteran like Alex to have a nice, safe respectable blues outfit à la John Mayall – after all, hes not a kid anymore.
