    Mr. Jim...I'll be honest saying the price scared me a bit but I really love the set...14 discs! The hardcover book is nice too. It's just wild going through the various bands & styles of music starting with the Big Soul band stuff playing blues & Rock & Roll cover tunes (back then they opened for the Beatles in Hamburg) through weird psychedelic stuff through the Sensational Alex Harvey Band theatrical hard rock stuff. I think there's at least 4 versions of Moses including one with a horn section

    Buck the price is scary for sure. But the total collection of work in that thing has to be cool to have.

    For years i only associated Alex with SAHB not really knowing he had all kinds of other work. Years ago i started to read and learn more about Alex's work. The challenge was there wasn't a whole lot of sources of information about him.

    But with all the big aniversaries like 30 and 40 years and whatnot more and more comes out.

    Well this is a good one. And good to see i never felt Alex got his due. I only wish he could have seen it
