I have three of this man's albums. (I suppose that in it self, dates me...ha-ha-ha). anyway, Gerry was one of the best little known artist to rock the airwaves. He had a simple way of just putting out great music!
This song is it. I agree the synth strings sound dated. But the chorus is so catchy and uplifting. Now on my play list.
I remember listening to this song and the rest of the City to City of Album in the summer in 1979. Too cool.
This album is in my vinyl museum and still gets pulled out and played regularly. Aspects of the production have dated a little, such as the synth string drone on this track and the vocal overdubs, but despite that it's still great listening overall and some of the songs are wonderful classics. If you only know Baker St have a listen to the rest...
