In 1978, Gerry Rafferty released the album that would establish his definitive fame. The album, called City To City, peaked at number 1 in the US album chart. Best known from the album is the song Baker Street, but the title song has also been a single, though only in Belgium and the Netherlands. It could have been the lead single, if Gerry Rafferty had not said United Artists could better release Baker Street. The song is about travelling between London and the home of Rafferty, Glasgow, in the time Stealers Wheel was falling apart. As this is 343.53 mile, he rounded it off to 400 mile. Enjoy

Mmm… I love this song! If there’s one song which is good, it’s this one. One of the best songs, instrumentally Brilliant and the text is good, too. Especially the saxophone is lovely, but that’s a strange thing which I have: I love saxophones in songs. And this song has it in the music all the time. If he sings, it is not there, but then it reappears, and again I’m happy! Yeah, this is a favourite song which I can hear a lot! Enjoy:
