The documentary about Gerry Rafferty on BBC2 Scotland tonight was just wonderful.
The first one is the wonderful Frankie Miller. The second by Stealers Wheel featuring Joe Egan on vocals. Frankie was a highly respected artist whose songs have been covered by many artists including Bob Seger and Delbert McClinton. Sadly he didn't become the superstar he should have. He's still alive but unable to speak after major illness a few years ago.
The Stealers Wheel clip is from a time when Gerry Rafferty had (temporarily) chucked it and had gone back to Scotland. He and Joe Egan were great songwriters and recording artistes and whilst Rafferty went on to great solo success, Egan simply faded away after a couple of solo efforts. I intend to do a feature on Stealers Wheel/ Gerry Rafferty at some stage. Check the hairdo's of the band!
