Alex Harvey: Agent 00 Soul

Choosing a Sensational Alex Harvey Band track in 2014 I wrote:
Alex Harvey was once voted Scotland's answer to Tommy Steele and his band opened for an early version of the Beatles.
Here he is in 1965 covering the song that had launched Edwin Starr's career the year before.

The title is a mark of how quickly the James Bond films entered the wider culture, and the piano player on this track is a young Steve Winwood.
