|STEVE HARLEY & COCKNEY REBEL THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES Limited 180gram Audiophile Vinyl LP
The Best Years Of Our Lives is an album by Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel released in March 1975. It was their first album that used Harley's name ahead of the band (the band was previously known simply as Cockney Rebel). This album was a big hit in Steve Harley's native England and on the mainland.
The album contains the band's biggest hit, the million selling "Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me)" and "Mr. Raffles". Other standout tracks include the driving rocker "The Mad, Mad Moonlight" and the acoustic ballad title track. The album was recorded and mixed at the EMI Studios, Abbey Road, London and Air Studios, London during November and December 1974. Alan Parsons produced the album.
The Best Years Of Our Lives is a fine, slickly crafted album that will delight Steve Harley enthusiasts and will also appeal to fans of Glam-oriented 1970s English rock.
