Allan Clarke, of course, made his name as lead singer with The Hollies, Manchesters answer to The Beatles, who enjoyed huge success across the 60's and early 70's. In 1972, he embarked on a solo career on Epic Records with his debut album My Real Name Is Arold (a reference to his true Christian name, Allan being his middle name). The following years, he moved to EMI and stayed for four years and three albums, which have been out-of-print on CD for some time. Headroom, the first of Allans EMI albums, sported a Magritte-styled cover and opened with Complete Controllable Man. Clarke produced the album himself, sang and played guitar, with help from guitarist Ray Glynn and keyboard player Kirk Duncan (both ex-The Mirage and Jawbone), Elton Johns bassist Dee Murray and legendary session drummer Tony Newman. It spawned the single Who?. After a non-album single, a cover version of Bruce Springsteen's Born To Run in 1975, Allan returned with his third and final EMI album, Ive Got Time, in 1976. It opened with another Springsteen song, Blinded By The Light " indeed, the LP consisted entirely of cover versions. Living In Love (originally by The Sutherland Brothers) was chosen as a 7."
