Started in 1954/55 playing Dixie. With his Soul Band he backed EDDIE COCHRAN & GENE VINCENT on tour.
First recordings are made when he stayed in Hamburg (STAR CLUB; TOP TEN) . Polydor released an album
with the Alex Harvey Soul Band and some singles too, mainly recorded with help from the KING SIZE TAYLOR &
the DOMINOES. After this Alex recorded together with his Brother LES HARVEY The BLUES Album for Polydor.
He recorded some psychedelic Singles in 1966 & 1967 and worked and recorded with the HAIRBAND on the
Musical HAIR Show too.
From 1969 till 1972 he recorded 3 progressive LPs, one with ROCK WORKSHOP and two under his own name:
"Roman Wall Blues" & "The Joker Is Wild" (I think only released in Germany at the time)
With his new Formation THE SENSATIONAL ALEX HARVEY BAND he recorded more successful between 1972 till
1978. From 1979 till his death in Febr. 1982 he recorded with a new ALEX HARVEY BAND two more LPs.
