Framed is the 1972 debut album by The Sensational Alex Harvey Band. The album was released separately on CD but is more widely available on a 2 in 1 album, the other album being Next. The title track is a Leiber/Stoller song originally recorded by The Robins. This album also features a cover of the song written by Willie Dixon and originally performed by Muddy Waters, "I Just Want To Make Love To You". Both of these songs appeared on Alex Harvey recordings as far back as the 1963 live recording from Hamburg, released in 1964 as "Alex Harvey and His Soul Band". "Hammer Song" and "Midnight Moses" are two Harvey originals that first appeared on his solo LP Roman Wall Blues in 1969. "Hole In Her Stocking" had been recorded by Alex Harvey as recently as 1970 on the Rock Workshop eponymous release of the same year.

The Sensational Alex Harvey Band was a rock band formed in Glasgow in 1972. Fronted by Alex Harvey accompanied by Zal Cleminson on guitar, bassist Chris Glen, keyboard player Hugh McKenna (born 28 November, 1949) and drummer Ted McKenna, its music veered from glam rock to experimental jazz, around a core of experimental and avant-garde rock, dealing with themes from environmentalism to Chinese take away food. The band had a critically acclaimed status in the UK, was very popular in continental Europe, and also highly influential in Australia, most notably on the young Nick Cave and his first band The Boys Next Door.
