Album: Ferguslie Park
. . .
Apparently, Gerry Rafferty — who’d already released a solo album — had quit Stealers Wheel before their 1972 debut album had even come out. But then “Stuck in the Middle With You” became a massive hit, and given how well Rafferty and Joe Egan sang together, Stealers Wheel reformed as essentially a duo for the follow-up, 1973’s Ferguslie Park.
And so, the decision was made to mine Ferguslie Park for the follow-up singles to “Stuck in the Middle With You,” hoping that lightning would strike again. But, of course, it didn’t.
