Can I Have My Money Back? is the first solo album by Gerry Rafferty. The distinctive cover design was by John Patrick Byrne and was the start of a long working relationship between Rafferty and the playwright. The LP was well received, but performed poorly in charts and sales, in part because Rafferty had just left a well known band, The Humblebums. The album also saw Joe Egan come on board, and the pair formed Stealers Wheel shortly afterwards. The album was subsequently re-issued on digitally remastered compact disc (CD) in an expanded version, with the same title (albeit subtitled "The Best of Gerry Rafferty") and a different cover design, by Castle Music, Ltd. (UK) in 2000 (Serial# ESMCD-879). Released only in the United Kingdom, it features an additional 12 tracks taken from his 1974 eponymous compilation album, Gerry Rafferty.
"Take My Time" is the debut album by UK pop singer Sheena Easton. Released in January 1981, the album reached #17 in the UK and earned her a Gold Disc. Two months later, a ten track version of the album was released in the USA and Canada as "Sheena Easton". The album went Gold in the USA and Platinum in Canada.
