Snakes and Ladders is the fourth album by Gerry Rafferty. It was released in 1980, following the success of his previous two albums, City to City and Night Owl. The album charted at No. 15 in the UK but only reached No. 61 in the US. The album was released on CD in 1998 [EMI 7 46609-2] but deleted soon after that, and it got reissued on CD on August 2012 as a 2-CD set with "Sleepwalking." Some of the songs are available on compilation albums. One of the songs, "The Garden Of England", was recorded at Beatles producer George Martin's AIR studio in Montserrat. All the songs were original Rafferty compositions, though one – "Johnny's Song" – was a remake of a song which had been previously released by his former band Stealer's Wheel, and another – "Didn't I" – was a remake of a song from Rafferty's 1971 album Can I Have My Money Back.

Though they eventually rose to enormous success in the hair metal era, Whitesnake toiled long in hard rock purgatory as a hard-working, road-ragged group. Little Box 'O' Snakes: The Sunburst Years 1978-1982 goes deep into the band's early catalog for the Sunburst label, offering up five studio albums and three live albums from various concert broadcasts, not to mention the 1978 Snakebite EP, which was previously available only on vinyl. Studio albums include Trouble (1978), Lovehunter (1979), Ready an' Willing (1980), Come an' Get It (1981), and Saints & Sinners (1982).
