Hugh Burns on playing the lead guitar on "Baker Street" and City to City:

I first met Gerry through working with the band Stealers Wheel (Right or wrong album)
At the time I did "City to City" I was touring with Jack Bruce, so I was playing in that slightly harder Rock blues style, which worked well with the songs. Gerry looked at the songs in a number of different ways before deciding on the final arrangement. It was a great lesson for me to see the amount of care taken to get the result he wanted. I have a feeling 'Baker Street' was one of the first songs I played on that album. The sound of the solo is a Les Paul through a Music man and a Fender Amp. Later I did 'Right down the line', 'Waiting for the day' and 'Stealin time', which are all really great songs. Working with Hugh Murphy (Gerry's producer) was inspiring for me because he created an atmosphere where you felt comfortable and could give your best. Its been my good fortune to work on a number of other albums with Gerry, including "Night Owl" with the classic song 'Get it right next time.' His recent album "A wing and a prayer" shows yet again what a wonderful songwriter he is - one of my favourite songwriters, bar none, and a great guitar player too.
'Careless Whisper' came from the Wham album "Make it big". The guitar parts are electric rhythm (A strat through a Fender amp) and Spanish style lead lines (A nylon strung Kohno.)
