It was originally released in 1964. his the first original LP by Alex Harvey. Do not be confused with the german compilation released in 1999 under the same name, but with completely different tracks. ( re-released on CD in Germany in 1999)
 
Hamburg, January 1964
My first meeting with Alex Harvey was due . . . was due, in fact, to a telephone call at throo a.m. on October 13th, 1963, to be quite exact (and I always try to be). The manager of one of Hamburg's leading twisteries was on the blower, and informed me at this dreaded hour that I should come to his club immediately and get a load of "the most fantastic sound since sliced bread". Although his claim sounded rather stale, it occurred to me that maybe, on this occasion, (for there HAD been others) he might possibly be right. So I said "OK, I'll come", scrambled into my nitelife clothes, hailed a passing bicycle and headed hotfoot for the Reeperbahn, Hamburg's world-famous Rue de Plaisir. Upon arriving at the club I was greeted enthusiastically by the said manager who hauled me inside, gave me a soft drink with a hard filling, and a ringside seat at the twisting turmoil. For about ten minutes I listened to the music whilst secretly memorizing the new nifty twisted variations that were being ground out all around me. The band stopped, the twisting stopped and there was a short interval. Then Mr. Alex Harvey and his Soul Band was announced. There was an expectant silence into which, as all war correspondents always say about the beginning of a battle, all hell broke loose (and who says there is NO similarity between the dance floor of a twistery and a battlefield?). I watched and listened to the music completely knocked out by the sheer OOMPH of the Harvey outfit. Indeed, his performance on stage has to be seen to be believed. In my mind, I had already signed Harvey after eight minutes of hearing his kind of music. Then came an interval, Harvey came to me, and we both came to an agreement. The result is this LP, /ecorded on the spot in that nitery.
That was the introductory story based on an original telephone call. Now come the facts 6f Alex Harvey's life which are nothing but the truth.
