When it was released back in 1976, a line from the seductive ballad "Tonight's the Night"--"Spread your wings and let me come inside"--was racy enough to get the song banned in some quarters. That may seem quaint by today's standards, as does "The Killing of Georgie," a lament over the murder of one of Stewart's gay friends. In fact, both songs, and particularly the latter, were as daring as they were accomplished, helping to make A Night on the Town Stewart's best effort of the mid-'70s. The distinctions "slow side" and "fast side" (originally assigned to the LP's A and B sides) are meaningless in the age of CDs, but they point out how adept Stewart is at any speed, reeling off a gorgeous rendition of Cat Stevens's "The First Cut is the Deepest" and the raucous original "The Balltrap" with equal aplomb.
