TJR says

The 22-year-old had been writing and performing since 1970 with no recognition, latterly getting by as a data-entry clerk. This criminal state of affairs was soon rectified when Stiff Records took a chance. The talented songwriter was backed in the studio by American country-rockers Clover who, it has to be said, did very well to hide the fact that they were American country rockers. This was the sound of a new generation – where country and blues could be thinly acknowledged, but the punk sneer was decidedly New Wave. 1977 was quite a year. R.I.P. Elvis I. Greetings Elvis II…
