40 Year Itch: Man, It Was Mean

    Steve Harley's follow-up  to the UK smash "Make Me Smile ( Come Up And See Me)" is another great tune from The Best Years of Our Lives, the UK #13 hit "Mr Raffles (Man It Was Mean)". Harley says the title character refers to the gentleman jewel thief, A.J. Raffles,  in the E.W. Hornung novels ...with some Dylanesque allusions to the devil tossed in.
