Stealers Wheels - Stealers Wheels
Based on the multiple talents of Gerry Rafferty and Joe Egan the first Stealers Wheel album became an instant critical and commercial success. Released in 1973, the album reached the upper regions of the charts, boosted by the hit single 'Stuck In The Middle With You' (which got a cinematic revival in 1992 through Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs [MOVLP722]).
With a line-up so unsteady, the faith of Stealers Wheel was soon sealed after their third album in 1975 an Rafferty would go on reaching massive solo results, but this album shows their songwriting quality as a duo in full as they tackle anything from Beatle-esque pop, mountain rock and West Coast melancholy. An album that deserves to be reckoned with as a whole rather than just the hit single it is known for.
