Gerry Rafferty is one of Scotland's finest songwriters and musicians, with a long list of hits to his credit.His hit song, "Foggy Baker Street," and his sound, a perfect blend of traditional folk, rock, and blues, and his melancholy melody lines have captivated music fans around the world, and he has made his mark on music history. Now, three of his classic albums released between 1978 and 1980 are being reissued in analog format, mastered at half speed by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios.
