“Next” by The Sensational Alex Harvey Band - album review

TJR says

The sixth Alex Harvey album - the second as the Sensational Alex Harvey Band - arrived in November, 1973. Delivering the hard-glam were: Alex Harvey (lead vocals, harmonica, guitar), Zal Cleminson (guitar, backing vocals), Chris Glen (bass guitar, backing vocals), Hugh McKenna (electric piano, organ, grand piano, backing vocals) and Ted McKenna (drums, percussion, backing vocals). Production duties were handled by London-based producer Phil Wainman, who had been working wonders with The Sweet in recent years. Generally, I can't take to the theatricy, but the title-track, a cover of Scott Walker's 1968 interpretation of Jacques Brel's “Au Suivant”, is inspired and suits their shock-rock schtick.
