Man it was Mean

I've loved Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel for as long as I have had my Morris Minor. A regular on some of the mix tapes and on my record player, a lot of the songs and messages are dated but the melody and lyrics are just fabulous.

As I rotate playlists through my smartphone, albums come and go and Steve Harley found it's way back onto the playlists before Easter.

When I went hunting, I was surprised to hear that Steve Harley is still performing (and alive!).

I came across this video, I hadn't realised that Alan Parsons put his golden touch on their first album!

One of my favourite Harley songs is Sebastian ... it is beautiful the way that the strings and harpsichord engulf you and carry you along on the journey.
