City To City
Scottish singer-songwriter Gerry Rafferty tasted success as part of The Humblebums in the late 1960s, and in Stealers Wheel (“Stuck In The Middle With You”) a couple of years later, but it was CITY TO CITY that truly put him on the musical map – the album displaced SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER for the No.1 slot on the U.S. chart on this day in 1978. The collection's most famous song, “Baker Street,” is a bittersweet look at the music industry's star-making machinery (with an unforgettable sax solo by Raphael Ravenscroft), but from follow-up hit “Right Down the Line” to other originals like “Whatever's Written In My Heart” and “Home And Dry,” the set shines from start to finish with outstanding pop craftsmanship. Surely Gerry Rafferty's finest hour, CITY TO CITY is well worth another visit.
