All "The Human Menagerie" proves is that Cockney Rebel are a hype and a rather effete one at that. He stated: "The Human Menagerie has some rather interesting ideas, approaches and styles, but they are all scattered throughout the never-changing mush of play-acting. The music has a multitude of low-key gimmicks - like the grandiose horns in "Death Trip" - but no real soul to hang them on - plenty of tinsel but no tree.

The Human Menagerie is the debut studio album by Cockney Rebel, released in 1973. It was produced by Neil Harrison. After training as a journalist for three years, Steve Harley embarked on a musical career, beginning with "floor spots" in London folk clubs in 1971. He also had a brief spell as rhythm guitarist and co-singer in the folk band Odin, where he met future Cockney Rebel violinist Jean-Paul Crocker. Harley felt he was not suited to the folk scene. He decided to form his own band Cockney Rebel in 1972, as a vehicle for his own songs.

Indulging for the first time in Cockney Rebel's debut album - and one uses the word "indulging" deliberately, for like so much else that's this delicious, you cannot help but feel faintly sinful when it's over - is like waking up from a really weird dream, and discovering that reality is weirder still. A handful of Human Menagerie's songs are slight, even forced, and certainly indicative of the group's inexperience  . The Human Menagerie is a dark cabaret - the darkest.

All The Human Menagerie proves is that Cockney Rebel are a hype and a rather effete one at that. American magazine Billboard listed the album as one of their "Recommended LP's". It's about time The Human Menagerie was recognised as a classic. Andrew Thomas of The Westmorland Gazette wrote: "Cockney Rebel were big news in the early 1970s. Songwriter and lead singer Steve Harley's distinctive vocal delivery, the choice of electric violin rather than electric guitar and Milton Reame-James' inspired keyboards made for an inventive and new sound.

The Psychomodo is the second studio album by Cockney Rebel, released in 1974. It was produced by Steve Harley and Alan Parsons. Those first two albums were heavily orchestrated. I was 22 years old, at Abbey Road with a full orchestra and a choir for songs like "Sebastian". oh, it was magnificent for a young ma. Steve Harley recalling The Human Menagerie and The Psychomodo albums in 2013.
