4. Face to Face, A Live Recording – Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel

LTW : There was a period when Steve Harley was the new Bowie- the alien genius with a run of singles that sent you away from planet earth. Judy teen was freak brilliance, Mr Soft was camp exhuberence and make me Smile spiteful genius…

Jim Bob : This was how I always wanted my gigs to be. The audience is incredible, they’re really part of the sound. I’ve got so used to the live versions of these songs that the studio versions always sound weird to me. Almost like demos.
