Sealed 1976 Original, Clean Cut Out Hole. “Although He Created A Decadent Glam Rocker Image Through Early Albums Like The Human Menagerie And The Psychomodo, Steve Harley Soon Revealed A Romantic Heart Beating Beneath All The Artsy Sleaze On Singles Like "Judy Teen" And "Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me)." This 1976 Album, The Last Studio Outing Harley Would Record Under The Cockney Rebel Banner, Allowed Him To Give Full Vent To His Romantic Thoughts Via Lushly Crafted Songs About The Travails Of Love. Love Is A Prima Donna Features Two Of Harley's Finest Songs In The Title Track, A Bracing Song That Features The Writer Waxing Comical About The Pitfalls Of Love Over A Briskly Paced Pop Tune That Fleshes Out Its Pub-Piano Melody With Flamenco Guitar And A Choir, And "(Love) Compared With You," A Delicately Orchestrated Love Ballad That Manages To Be Touching And Heartfelt Without Lapsing Into Sappy Sentimentality. This Album Also Produced One Of Harley's Biggest Hits With An Arty, Synthesizer-Laced Cover Of The Beatles' Classic "Here Comes The Sun." The Remainder Of The Album Juggles Genres As Diverse As Prog Rock, Folk, Doo Wop, And Reggae As Harley Carefully Balances His Musical Ambitions With His Knack For Pop Hooks. Harley's Ambitions Occasionally Overwhelm Him ("Innocence And Guilt" Goes A Bit Overboard On Studio Effects), But The Best Songs Rank With Harley's Finest Work And The Album Manages To Overcome Its Occasional Excesses Thanks To A Crisp, Consistent Production That Keeps Its Genre-Hopping Sounding Smooth. In Short, Love Is A Prima Donna Takes A Few Listens To Assimilate, But It Is An Impressively Crafted Album That Offers Plenty Of Rewards For Harley Fans And Anyone Who Can Appreciate Glam Rock At Its Most Artsy.” Donald A. Guarisco, AMG.
