The late singer-songwriter's daughter, Martha has agreed to loan Paisley Museum a selection of items - including the famous guitar painted by celebrated Scots artist John Byrne and the original hand-written lyrics to Rafferty's biggest hit, Baker Street.

The exhibition will run from March 7 to May 9 and is part of the Bring It All Home Festival, organised by Renfrewshire Council in conjunction with the Rafferty family.

John Byrne designed the covers for many of the singer's solo albums, as well as the record sleeves for Stealers Wheel, which Rafferty formed with fellow Paisley songwriter, Joe Egan and had a worldwide hit with Stuck In The Middle.

Long-time Rafferty fan and owner of the Apollo Music record store, in Paisley, Mike Dillon said: "This will be a must-see exhibition for Rafferty fans."
