Retro of the day: Steelers wheel

“Stuck in the Middle” was released on Stealers Wheel‘s 1972 self-titled debut album.[6] Gerry Rafferty provided the lead vocals, with Joe Egan singing harmony. The song was conceived initially by the band members as a parody of Bob Dylan‘s distinctive lyrical style and paranoia. The band was surprised by the single’s chart success.[7] The single sold over one million copies, eventually peaking in 1973 at #6 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart and #8 in the UK Singles Chart.
