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.

This Australian-only box set covers the period of the band's peak in popularity (1980-1984). Beginning with True Colours and ending with their swan song, See Ya Round, it shows the band in perfect pop form. While this is too ambitious for the casual fan, the devoted will find this essential for considerably improved sound and the bonus disc of previously unreleased tracks.

"I Love You" is arguably the highlight of the album. You either love the song or hate it, but I'm with the majority who loves this simple, beautiful song penned by Climax Blues Band bassist Derek Holt.
This isn't a typical Climax Blues Band song, as it strays from their core Blues-based format; however, the Climax Blues Band, whether they were willing to admit it or not, began straying in the mid-70's, incorporating a disco-based sound ("Couldn't Get it Right," a disco hit from 1976 wasn't much in the blues vein).
