In the history books, Cockney Rebel and the wonderful Steve Harley deserve more acclaim for their music than they often get. They weren't quite rock, they weren't folk, and they weren't glam. This record is such a unique creation. The hit single Mr Soft is weird and infectious but it is theelegiac closing track Tumbling Down which was to be their greatest legacy with a refrain of oh dear, look what they've done to the blues, blues, blues.
They peaked quickly and it fell apart too soon, but this is a timeless record of quirky music and intense lyricism.
