    One of my favourites! It is in Robert Dimery's book '1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die'. The title track 'Next' was written by Jacques Brel, Mort Shuman, & Eric Blau, Alex Harvey had a knack for finding interesting songs and turning them to his style and rock music, as they did with 'Delilah'. Seeing them live in 1976 at Reading Rock festival was superb, their opening track "Action Strasse" was something else, Alex dressed up as Adolf, with dancing girls in sudo gestapo uniforms and lingerie, they certainly took their show to the limit. I seem to remember they played all of 'Tomorrow Belongs to Me' and all the best tracks from the other three previous albums.

To our astonishment onto the stage came Dr Feelgood, they were playing under a pseudonym warming up before going on tour. There was no more that 30-40 people in the audience. It was absolutely superb, they played a long set about 2 hours with a 20 minute break, and came into the audience to chat and have a beer, wonderful.
