October 24, 2020: ONE WEEK REMAINING in the Annual Heavy Harmonies Donation Drive!

Donations stand at covering 63% of the site's annual expenses... so close and yet so far. The annual donation drive is what keeps the site free for everyone so that I'm only pestering you once a year rather than running ads year round.

If you are not in a position to contribute (which I fully understand), please disable your ad-blocker on heavyharmonies.com. When you click through any of the eBay links, if you buy something on eBay, Heavy Harmonies will get a tiny commission.

Donation buttons are shown below. There is a thread on the HH forum that explains the perks for donating at the $20 and $50 levels.

Thank you for supporting the Heavy Harmonies community!


Donate $50    Donate $20    Donate $10    Donate $5    Donate $2

The first Saxon album i bought way back, and still a goodie. May surprise a few people when they listen to a couple of tracks Namely 'Rainbow Theme' & 'Frozen Rainbow' - quite Rush like in places. 'Big Teaser'& 'Militia Guard'& 'Stallions Of The Highway' are other highlights from this excellent debut.

These boys never dissapoint. Back to basic, in your face, stripped down raw talent. Every Saxon song is a gem. Here are musicians who play music to play, instead of playing only for money. I suggest anyone who hasn't picked up any Saxon; PICK IT UP!!!!! 10/10.
