Steal­ers Wheel

The A&M Years Caro­line

A wel­come col­lec­tion from early 70s soft rock­ers Steal­ers Wheel en­joyed a short, tur­bu­lent but in­tensely cre­ative life in the early 70s, de­liv­er­ing sin­gles like Stuck In The Mid­dle

With You be­fore im­plod­ing with mem­bers Gerry Raf­ferty and Joe Ea­gan mov­ing onto solo ca­reers, Raf­ferty in par­tic­u­lar mak­ing an in­deli­ble stamp on pop’s ed­i­fice with Baker Street in the process. The three al­bums here are Steal­ers Wheel (1972),

Fer­gus­lie Park (1974) and Right Or Wrong (1975), the first al­bum be­ing en­hanced with three live tracks. Steal­ers Wheel has per­haps slipped out of view in re­cent years, but this com­pi­la­tion acts as a re­minder of what an in­flu­en­tial act they were. [DM] Stand­out track: Stuck In The Mid­dle With You For fans of: Gerry Raf­ferty, Al Ste­wart
