Gerry Rafferty is a popular music giant, thanks to the song "Baker Street". His career long predated that phenomenal fixture of top 40 radio. Indeed, by the time he cut "Baker Street", Rafferty had already been a member of two extremely successful collaborations: The Humblebums and Stealers Wheel.
The album City to City, which spawned “Baker Street” was released in 1978. It was a melodic, yet strangely enigmatic album and sold in millions around the world, topping the album charts on both sides of the Atlantic. This new and much awaited album--Life Goes On, features six unreleased tracks from Gerry, including two Christmas carols and a beautiful cover of The Beatles song “Because”. Sitting alongside these gems, Gerry has lovingly re-mastered some of his favourite tracks from his last three albums: “On a Wing and a Prayer", “Over My Head” and “Another World”.

Typical Gerry Rafferty, like all albums recorded by what I think of as the best singer/songwriter to come out of Scotland, the album is superb. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Eilidh

This was very interesting album as Gerry Rafferty was clearly getting ready to leave us and the album reflected that. Read morePublished on 2 July 2013 by Jenny - Healer
