Listen To This! No 19

More Sensational Alex Harvey Band. No Complaints Department.

The song that gloriously rounded off their last LP. Or at least it did in the original pressings. Due to various obscure legal reasons too ridiculous to get into here, it was jettisoned from the later pressings of the original release, as well as in subsequent re-issues. Sad really, as it's the most wonderful, concise, bitter-sweet assessment of life I've ever heard.

The slide video lacks picture quality, but I like it nonetheless.

I really like that. Even though his voice has a touch of the Rod Stewart at times.

Actually, it's Tom Waits that springs to mind, in so much as I can see him covering the song with no little panache.
