Stealers Wheel: Stealers Wheel

Simon Frith, Let It Rock, February 1973

Gerry Rafferty is a lunk. He put together a fine group, cut a lovely album and then split. It's the most lunatic thing since Dave Mason left Traffic. Old folkies don't die, they commit endless harikari and Gerry has absolutely no excuse for leaving Stealers Wheel.
