  • Lyrics
  • In 1973, The Sensational Alex Harvey Band played the Reading Festival. Guitarist Hugh McKenna told Harvey's biographer John Neil Munro, "We opened up with 'Faith Healer,' which we had only written the week before, it hadn't even been recorded yet."
  • "Faith Healer" is the third track on Next, but at least one extended live version has been recorded, which is superior to the already superb album mix. The single was released in the UK on Vertigo; the B Side was a song called "St. Anthony." >>
