Stealers Wheel - stuck in the middle with the great Leiber & Stoller

Stealers Wheel.  After reading their co-autobiography I just had to get this record.  Leiber & Stoller, they of a storied 5-plus decade song-writing and record-making career as partners, produced this record.  If not for reading the book, I would never have known that.  That famous duo wrote tons of hits - Hound Dog for Big Mama Thornton, Elvis, etc.  Songs like KAnsas City, On Broadway and many others for groups like The Coasters and the Drifters, and Ben E. King.  But the reason you know this record is for Stuck in the Middle with You.  Gerry Rafferty of course is singing lead vocals.  Study the album cover and see how many times you can see the band's name appear.
