Vinyl #14 – Baker Street


In 1978, Gerry Rafferty released Baker Street. The song was edited down to 4:08 for the single from the 6:01 album version on City to City by cutting it down and speeding it up. It was omnipresent on Top 40 radio in the summer of ’78. I remember when I was at West Point for a summer program it seemed like every other song on the radio was Baker Street. And I never tired of it. Play the sax solo loud!
