Review ( AllMusic) : Steve Harley is generally known as the leader of the glam rock group Cockney Rebel, so it might come as a surprise to casual fans that he recorded a live acoustic album in 1998 at London's Jazz Cafe. That live album, Stripped to Bare Bones, happens to be proof that Harley was a solid song-craftsman and a fine performer, more than just a glam has-been. His relaxed yet energetic performances and ease at storytelling make Stripped to Bare Bones a highly entertaining album, even for listeners who aren't familiar with his body of work. Since the record is effectively a document of a full concert, complete with shtick, it isn't something that would make its way to the stereo all that often, but when it's on, it will likely make you smile.
