Stealers Wheel

Stealers Wheel was signed to A&M Records, Ltd. Derek Green told Music Week, "Stealers Wheel hit big with their first single and went on the road, but would not take direction. They were not prepared to meet the commercial world at all....I think Gerry Rafferty is in the top ten most talented people I have ever worked with, but he just didn't want to work it our way. I respected him for that--as long has he was true to what he was saying--and we gave him a release. He was an artist I would have stuck with forever, but his attitude precluded that."
