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.

Rafferty was born in Paisley, ... Read more in Amazon's Gerry Rafferty Store

Fantastic. I only bought this because it had Baker Street on it, but Gerry is a superb musician and vocalist. Ever listened to a song and wished it went on for longer than it did? This whole album is full of these songs. City to City is another excellent song but the surprise for me was that there are some songs I like even more than the irrepressible Baker Street. The Days Gone Down track is the pinnacle of the album for me. It's the kind of wistful road theme that engenders a desire to listen to it on some epic journey. A must have. Plus Mr Rafferty's history is amazing, from performing sets with Billy Connolly & the Humblebums to the Stealers' Wheel failed collaboration. I've listened to this album far more than most of any I own.

As others have said you need more than 16 tracks for the best of this man! Gerry Rafferty produced an unequalled catalogue of high quality work - well, maybe with the exception of Lennon & McCartney... maybe. I got this album for my partner who only knows Baker St and Get It Right Next Time so has the most amazing musical treat in store.

The one omission I regret on this compilation is the most excellent The Ark which even among such a superb body of work as Gerry's is extraordinarily superb. You may have gathered by now that I love Gerry Rafferty.

Enough! If you love great music - buy this! I guarantee you and yours will be delighted.

Since purchasing this CD it has hardly been off of the stereo. It is brilliant, he had such a beautiful voice. I love the whole CD. I hadn't heard too many of his songs apart from the well knowns but the whole CD is brilliant. I love it.

I ordered this because I heard 'Get It Right Next Time' as background music to a TV programme on the 70's and 80's; it is a fantastic track.
Having bought the CD, a also enjoyed most of the other tracks. This is a good compilation and good value.
Delivery of the CD was excellent

This must be one of the all time classic albums that has been missed by the music media or else they just don't appreciate what an outstanding artist Gerry Rafferty was. I first heard of Gerry when I was eighteen and did'nt fully get how melodic and intricate his music was. In my fifties it's a different story and sadly most people probably have only heard of the excellent 'Baker St', however there is so much more awaiting you with this album. Go on indulge yourself I did and was transported back some thirty years to simpler times.

There is so much more to Gerry Rafferty than Baker Street. Some of his genius features on this album, but the "best of", I don't think so. Dig out his CD's you'll be pleased you did. Find these tracks........"The Right Moment" "Garden of England" "Light of Love" "Barking at the Moon", and you're getting close to his best stuff - trust me!
