A product of the early 70's, ROCK WORKSHOP were formed in 1970 by RAY RUSSELL and ALEX HARVEY and became an expansive band of 13 musicians who created an innovative and technically articulate form of experimental rhythm and blues. Ray Russell recalls "I was playing with GEORGIE FAME and the BLUE FLAMES and then appeared in a musical called "HAIR" where both myself and Alex's brother LESLIE HARVEY (Stone The Crows) used to play and Alex used to come down and sing, often backing vocals. From that we decided to form a band as raunchy, raw and organic as possible. I wrote some of the lyrics but Alex wrote most of them". "Rock Workshop" was released in 1971 to great critical acclaim but due to their then record company wanting to market them as an English "Blood Sweat And Tears"- never achieved great commercial success. A second album was recorded before the band folded and Alex Harvey went on to great commercial and critical success with his own band.
