Musicalia: RIP Gerry Rafferty
*One likely responsible for the entire sax solo binge that happened in decade that followed.
Rather than wax ecstatic about the genius that was Gerry Rafferty, I'll let his music do the speaking. First, the stirring "Whatever's Written in Your Heart" from City to City.
Here is a link to one of the three singles off of his follow-up to City to City, "Get it Right Next Time" from Night Owl, and here is a session video for its title track.
And last but not least, one of my favorite songs ever...
I can say with confidence that I'll be wearing my Gerry Rafferty shirt in remembrance of you, Gerry. Now if I can only dig up that photo of me at the Baker Street Underground station...
