Biography

Gerry Rafferty was a popular music giant at the end of the '70s, thanks to the song "Baker Street" and the album City to City. His career long predated that fixture of Top 40 radio, however; indeed, by the time he cut "Baker Street" Rafferty had already been a member of two successful groups, the Humblebums and Stealers Wheel.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great ensemble of his tracks 5 April 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Being fairly young (17), I don't know too much of Gerry Rafferty's music, being introduced to him by Baker Street. Therefore, this album is a great way to experience more of his music, and I think it encapsulates him and his style very well, as there is a good spread of different tempos, rhythms and tracks that are either exciting or a little more peaceful, some verging on melancholy. I won't pretend to be an expert on music, but this really is a great work.

The Amazon download was flawless as usual, and provided the tracks in an easy to use and high quality format.

This CD is one of the best ever sound quality CD I'v ever heard. Maybe it's just that I been listening to far too much crap mp3 soundings. Great sounding CD well worth the buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 15 April 2014
By Alitw8
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I had all the original vinyls back in the 70s....long since gone. So finally got round to replacing them with this brilliant compilation. Gerry Rafferty was a great singer songwriter, sadly gone before his time. Some really great songs here, well worth buying, his voice was soulful and the music is timeless - always a sing of great writing. Get this, you wont regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great classics and less known discoveries 10 July 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My all-time favourite track from the 70s is Baker Street - and given how frequently it's still played on the radio, it's a classic that has stood the test of time. I was familiar with several of the other Rafferty songs on this compilation, but a few new discoveries have given me much pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this CD 22 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Only really new Baker Street before I happened to watch a documentary and memorial concert on BBC4 and loved the songs. Have not stopped listening to this since I got it especially the wonderful Days Gone Down and Right Down the Line. The musicians are brilliant too, you can pick out every instrument clearly. It's not often I like every song on a CD straight off but with this one I do. Don't know why I have only just discovered him now as I am in my 50's. Only wish I had appreciated his music when he was alive as I would have loved to see him in concert.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gerry Rafferty - Essential album 6 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
You won't get a better album than this one for under 5 and it is one of the best albums I possess. You can also get the excellent City to City and Night Owl albums as a single package for under 7.
