  • Arranger: Tommy Eyre.
  • Often mistaken with Night Owl, as they both had similar subject matter and beautiful Patrick Byrne covers, the main difference is that this is the one with "Baker Street," probably the most flogged song of the past two decades, and one that now does his credibility no good. Missing out in the memory bank is the powerful "The Ark," and the often ignored, radio-friendly title track. It also includes two of his finest open love songs: "Right Down The Line" and the innocently profound "Whatever's Written In Your Heart"), with the line "so we agree to disagree, at least we got our memories."
Professional Reviews
Uncut (p.93) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he original 10 songs remain an essential expression of punk-defying soft-rock."

Q (Magazine) (p.123) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[M]ellifluous pop songs....Most of CITY TO CITY's 10 tracks present Rafferty as a restless soul."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "It opens with some sweet synth-thing meandering over floaty ambience, then in roars that sax fanfare, primal like the sea, until Rafferty's featherbed voice smooths it over..."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.101) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Gerry's intimate singing style bordered on the confessional: an unfussy delivery that never swamped the emotions of the songs."
