Album: Best Of The Sensational Alex Harvey Band (1975)
  • This song is Part 2 of Harvey's Hot City Symphony; it runs to 8 minutes and 11 seconds. Harvey's biographer John Neil Munro says the song is "a bizarre parody of the Mickey Spillane pulp fiction crime novels." Harvey doesn't sing the song but narrates it like a character from a film noir detective feature. Although the song asks more questions than it answers, it is both entertaining and original. >>
