    Missing only one of his five charted singles, One More Dream serves as an effective gathering of Gerry Rafferty's adult contemporary-styled pop. Known for his smooth midnight sound and calming voice, Rafferty began his solo chart success with "Baker Street" in 1978. Supported by the famous saxophone solo of Raphael Ravenscroft, the single reached the number two spot and held that position for six weeks, while Rafferty's follow-up single, "Right Down the Line," peaked at number 12 only three months later. Both singles came from the platinum selling City to City album, easily his most solid release. One More Dream covers all of Rafferty's finest moments, with "Night Owl," "Days Gone Down," and "Get It Right Next Time" representing 1979's Night Owl album in which the latter two were Top 40 singles. No hits collection would be complete without acknowledging his brief career with Stealers Wheel, which is where Rafferty had his inaugural rub with the Top Ten chart, achieving a number-six placing with "Stuck in the Middle With You," resurrected again on the 1992 soundtrack to the movie Reservoir Dogs. But even the unfamiliar material is wonderfully subdued and comfortably wholesome, brushed with relaxing acoustic guitar and laid-back, lenitive lyrics . Both "Tired of Talkin'" and "Moonlight and Gold" stream with late-night enchantment, and the bouncy guitar enthusiasm of "The Girl's Got No Confidence" is a solid pop effort. Even though "Home and Dry" is left off of this compilation, One More Dream is still a suitable assembly of this quieted performer's best work. ~ Mike DeGagne
