Album of the Day
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. 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 progressive-pop craftsmanship. Surely Gerry Rafferty's finest hour, CITY TO CITY is well worth another visit.
