Steve Wright: Hard Road

Alan Betrock, Phonograph Record, March 1975

SOME OF MY friends keep telling me that it's never coming back, but I'm an incurable optimist and despite the dismal last few years of pop, I can't help but think that it is indeed finally coming back, especially when I hear an album like this one. Ex-Easybeat and mod-maniac Little Stevie Wright is small no more. He's simply Steve Wright now, and has come up with a wonderful debut album.
