About this album

“City To City” debuted the first week of May 1978. It quickly rose to #1 the week of July 8, 1978 taking 10 weeks to hit the top and ending the 24 week reign at #1 by the Soundtrack to “Saturday Night Fever”. The album was boosted by the first release “Baker Street” which hit #2 on the Billboard Singles Chart for 6 weeks. It had an 8 week stay in the Top 10 and a 23 week ride in the Top 40. “Right Down The Line” followed that single into the Top 40 A third release “Home and Dry” hit the charts in early 1979 which kept the album on the chart-for a lofty 49 weeks.

This was Gerry Rafferty’s first solo album, apart from Stealer’s Wheel. 2 subsequent albums followed but he was never able to match this albums success. A true classic from 1978

    wunderbar, diese differenzierten Pecussions. Und inder Mitte der mehrstimmige Satzgesang. Schööööön.

    I still have the vinyl of this one. Then I got the CD, of course. Baker Street is such a timeless song, it never grows old.

    This song reminds me of riding my first Harley Sportster when I was 17. You give it a little gas and take off. After a while you feel a little more comfortible and rip the throttle a little more open. After a while, you're riding down the highway at full speed and yet you know you're in compleate control. Damn! Whatta Rush!
