Like most people, I became aware of the music of Gerry Rafferty through the song Baker Street, buying the album City to City many years ago and enjoying it ever since. I have added slowly to my collection of his albums over the years, stymied only by their rarity and consequent high price. Rafferty's death early this year re-kindled my enthusiasm and my purchase of this album completed my collection. I have read other reviews of several of his albums with interest, buying several with trepidation and always being surprised, as I have unfailingly enjoyed every one of them. It would be true to say that those people who were perhaps just looking for a repeat of Baker Street itself might find some of his other albums less interesting, but the album City to City itself is full of contrasts, from the rock of the afore-mentioned song and the title track to the more folky Matty's Rag. This album, the rarest, is another gem. The tracks cover a variety of styles once again, from the rocky "The Waters of Forgetfulness" to the Country & Western-sounding "Wrong Thinking" and "Down and Out". "The Girl's Got No Confidence" is a joyful up-tempo romp, whilst "Lonesome Polecat" and " Late Again" are more reflective. " Clear Day" is another of those laid-back smooth rock tracks which Rafferty does so well." Out the Blue" reminded me very much of John Lennon, while a new version of the early track " Her Father Didn't Like Me Anyway" is a worthy closer to the album. "Bajan Moon" is an off-beat opening track, but, once you're drawn in, I defy any Rafferty fan to find anything less than satisfying on this lesser-known masterpiece. Expensive, yes(come on, record companies, get a re-issue out!), but worth every penny! Highly recommended.
