Editorial Reviews

The 1973 debut album from the duo of Gerry Rafferty and Joe Egan features the monster hit "Stuck in the Middle with You", which enjoyed a revival from inclusion in the motion picture "Reservoir Dogs". The album had been missing on CD for some 15 years and has now returned to the marketplace. Produced by the legendary Leiber & Stoller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stuck in the Middle! February 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Here we finally see this album available again after so many years of neglect from the compact disc market! This Pop-Rock classic from 1973 is the first album from Stealers Wheel, of which the band would only release two more studio albums. Headed by Joe Egan (vocals, keyboards) and Gerry Rafferty (Vocals, guitar), this group had interesting ups and downs in its 3-year journey on the pop-charts.
Produced by the famous Leiber-Stoller, this album also featured Paul Pilnick (lead guitar), Tony Williams (bass), and Rod Coombes (drums). The standout hit on this album is the pop single-sensation hit "Stuck in the Middle with You," which was most noteably featured in Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs." (Which is how I first heard the song!) All of the songs are penned by Egan and Rafferty, and reflect the sound of the Beatles at times, especially on "Another Meaning." Perhaps this is due to the fact that ex-Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick recorded this album... So, take the slightly rocky journey through Stealers Wheel debut album; with pop-folk-tinged melodies and good playing, this album still sounds good today!

Joe Egan and Gerry Rafferty combined their forces for Stealer's Wheel after Gerry's disappointment with the sales and reception from his first solo album (and playing in The Humblebums with comedian/musician Billy Connolly--Egan and Rafferty had played together and in the same circles before). Egan and Rafferty had noticed in the past that their voices melded well (they harmonized on Everly Brothers songs), enjoyed working on Rafferty's first solo album and decided to join forces again.

Stealer's Wheel became in the process a one-hit wonder to most folks for the song "Stuck in the Middle with You". "Star" (from their second album)of course charted as well actually charting higher than "Stuck in the Middle with You" which is tragic because there's so much more great music here and on the two subsequent albums Egan and Rafferty made.

The Cherry Red reissue of this album sounds pretty good with good dynamic range it sounds very good but not spectacular. That could be down to the recording studio. Rumor has it that this album was remastered from the tapes prepared for the vinyl version (I don't know that this is true but it's possible)as many of the songs here sound different than some of the Steeler's Wheel anthologies and the Gerry Rafferty three disc anthology released this year.

There aren't any bonus tracks (you know that there has to be outtakes/alternate takes, etc.). The liner notes are quite pretty good and rather presenting them as a booklet it's a fold out with the cover as a poster on the other side.

This is a terrific album (although their best work was to come)with good mastering. Fans will want this and it's worth picking up.

Recommended.

As usual Cherry

5.0 out of 5 stars Beatlesque melodies galore! May 4, 2007
By GPC
Format:Audio CD
What a superb, little-known "lost" classic album! If you enjoy Beatles music and wish there was more, look no further than this excellent, highly melodic masterpiece by Stealers Wheel. If all you know is "Stuck in the Middle With You", then you're in for a treat. Gerry Rafferty was at his peak as a songwriter at this time; most of his later stuff pales by comparison.

4.0 out of 5 stars is the Wheel off-center? February 20, 2013
By BigEars
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
From a purely musical standpoint, this is a wonderful album that holds up well. I would say it's underrated in general. We can talk about its strengths, or the occasional tendency towards disconnect in the songwriting personalities of Egan and Rafferty, but man, when they gell, they gell -- especially their voices on songs like "Another Meaning."

However, my reason for writing this review, years after purchasing both this and Ferguslie Park, is that I increasingly find myself questioning the source material and/or the process used to create these CD versions of albums that absolutely deserve a great remastering. I keep hearing something like a very slight "wow and flutter" effect on my Stealer's Wheel recordings; it's subtle but definitely noticeable, and seemingly spread throughout -- making me wonder if the transfers were either flawed or done using an off-center vinyl copy as the source (hardly constituting a "remaster"). I'm no audiophile, but there are other aspects of it that don't sound like it was made from a clean master, correctly transferred.
I can find no info in the CD insert about the recording process or its source. Anyone know anything about who owns the masters? This is an "import" recording, and that can be a euphemism for an unauthorized, or less than ideal, version. I'm not accusing Lemon Records UK of anything illegal, but I am curious about the source material.

Has any other purchaser noticed anything that sounds off?

2.0 out of 5 stars Product Quality is Good...... April 2, 2014

Other than the song(s) you've heard of, there isn't much that carries this album. I had to find out. Now I know.
