The songs "Baker Street," "Whatever's Written In Your Heart" and "Bring It All Home" were remixed by Hugh Murphy, who produced the original sessions. When "Baker Street" was originally released in the U.S. by United Artists, it was mastered at a higher speed to insure more radio play. Therefore, this version, at the correct speed, may sound slow to some consumers.
Personnel includes: Gerry Rafferty (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars); Richard Brunton (acoustic & electric guitars); Nigel Jenkins (guitar); Ric Sanders (fiddle); Geraint Watkins (accordion); Raph Ravenscroft (saxophone, lyricon); Tommy Eyre (piano, keyboards, Moog synthesizer); Graham Preskett (electric piano, string programming); Pete Wingfield (organ); Alan Clark (organ, keyboards, synthesizer); Ian Maidman (bass); Arram Ahmun (drums, percussion); Maurice Pert (percussion); Betsy Cook, Joanna Carlin (background vocals).
Includes liner notes by Jerry Gilbert.
Originally released on EMI America.
Right Down the Line: The Best of Gerry Rafferty is an imperfect 15-track collection of the singer/songwriter's '70s and '80s albums that favors obscure album tracks to actual hits. Of course, his biggest solo hits, "Baker Street" and "Right Down the Line," are here, but instead of featuring his other lesser hits, the collection draws from his albums. Still, it's an adequate introduction and overview. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
