5.0 out of 5 stars Simply beautiful 2 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Barbara was a friend of Gerry Rafferty and sang backing vocals on several of his recordings in the 1970's and has frequently performed his material in her concerts over the years. This album is a perfect tribute to the beautiful song writing and lyics of Gerry Rafferty. The album opens with Baker Street - a brave move, considering this is the song so closely associated with Gerry and well known to all. The famous sax instrumental is replaced by strings and the whole approach is stripped back - simple arrangement, with strings, piano and voice - nothing more - and indeed nothing more needed - you can focus on the songs and lyrics and not the production. The album has a very real sound - strings, piano, pipes on the majority of the songs and a celtic/folk feel, in keeping with Barbara's colloboration with Troy Donockley. It works very well indeed. The title track, To Each and Everyone for example features only harmonium and pipes. The Light of Love is sublime, Barbara's rich and expressive voice accompanied only by grand piano. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into this album. The result is fantastic. Simply beautiful.

To Each and Everyone: The Songs Of Gerry Rafferty
Have just received this CD - lovely, especially "Family Tree" and "The Ark". I loved almost all of the tracks, but then have been a fan of Barbara Dickson's since she first appeared on TV.
Just chill with a glass of wine and listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely tribute to Gerry 2 Sep 2013
By Mark
Format:Audio CD
Barbara has brought new life to some lovely songs written by the late Gerry Rafferty. This collection is mostly of songs I haven't heard before. It is more to my taste than some of her more recent folk albums. I like them, but I like this better! Personal favourites are Family Tree, As Wise As A Serpent, Mary Skeffington, The Ark and Another World. I am not very keen on Baker Street or the songs featuring the harmonium, it's just an instrument I don't like, however I am sure lots of other people will love them, it's just personal taste! All in all a great collection of lovely songs beautifully produced. Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely 1 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a huge fan of Gerry Rafferty since the early 70s. His music has given me an enormous amount of pleasure over the years. Being a fan of Mike Batt and one of my favourite songs being Caravan sung by Barbara Dickson, I thought I'd give this a whirl, not expecting that much really. First listen I thought not bad. Second listen I thought this is nice. Third try, mmmm this is good. Subsequently, this has become the most played CD of the year in my car, work, house, ipod etc. etc.

The songs have been stripped right back to basics, some with only piano and voice, but this is the essence of the album. It allows the full meaning of Mr Rafferty's writing to shine through. I've learned a lot about the songs from listening to this, most of which I didn't really hear on the original recordings.

The production and arrangements by Troy Donockley are superb. The Celtic/Scottish feel really adds to the beauty of the songs.

The last track on the album, Another World, which I had never heard before, is quite simply one of the most meaningful songs I've ever heard. It brings a tear to my eye every time I listen to it.

If you're a fan of Gerry Rafferty's music you must give this a try. Not at all what I was expecting but absolutely stunning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gerry Rafferty Shines On 27 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This collection of Gerry Rafferty compositions reminds us of the great talent that we have lost. The songs are lovingly rearranged and Barbara Dickson's affinity with this material shines through her immaculate delivery. This is a real must for any Gerry Rafferty or Barbara Dickson fan.

Wasn't sure about this when I saw the track listing but the almost 'unplugged' approach really shows the wonder of the lyrics and the grace of dicksons singing. An especially beautiful and desaxified Baker Street is the highlight the real strength of the lyrics shines -- wonderful if this version was released as a single and was a hit all over again. Other standouts Wise as a serpent, Mary Skefington, The Ark and the wonderful Family Tree.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect tribute to a great singer/songwriter 19 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A most enjoyable album where Barbara and her fellow musicians capture the spirit of Gerry Rafferty's songs, sung in her own unique style. From Baker Street through to the beautifully simple arrangement of Another World, it is Barbara Dickson at her best.

Love Barbara Dickson, love Gerry Rafferty; This is an excellent tribute to the man and his music by what must be his biggest fan; Dickson's rendition of Baker Street (minus the Sax solo) is brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars successful present.
Received quickly as was required. Perhaps packaging a bit thin but it survived. It made a fantastic present for my partner who has been a long time Barbara Dickson fan.

I bought this album as a present for my husband. He likes it very much but I personally think it is a bit boring with all the songs sounding very alike.

A very good interpretation of Gerry Rafferty's songs. Barbara is at her finest with an excellent sound and very good backing.

The sheer musicality of the late great Gerry meant that the first time I listened to this album I did not appreciate Ms Dickson's interpretation of most of the songs therein. Read more
