Spike Edney's SAS Band - Anyone got the album?

Post by Leigh Burne »

As you may or may not know, Queen's perennial fifth member Spike Edney has/had his own band, the SAS Band.

Looking back at Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know and Blue Rock recently, I couldn't help but notice the lion's share of my favourite tracks from those were penned by Spike, which in turn has got me thinking of tracking down the SAS Band's studio album.

Anyone on here have it? (I'm sure some probably do.) Care to share your thoughts?

(And yes, I know about Roger and John's guest spot on it :))

Yeah, it's worth getting. A cracking version of Jamie Moses singing The Beatles song Baby, You're A Rich Man, opens the album.

Just noticed Cozy Powell plays on it too. That guy sure did get around! And Jamie Moses. Spike keeping up the Queen(ish) connections.

Assuming "Dirty Mind" is a cover of the Cross song of the same name?

Dirty Mind is a live version of The Cross track, Chris Thompson on vocal and it’s very good.

There’s also a decent version of ABBA’s Name of the Game which has always made me smile. The album is well worth seeking out.
