Gerry Rafferty - RIP 
Gerry Rafferty har avlidit, 63 år gammal, efter en längre tids sjukdom. Skotten Rafferty är mest känd för sin megahit ”Baker street”, utgiven 1978, en storslagen ballad med berömmelsens förbannelse som tema. Dessförinnan hade Rafferty framgångar med egna gruppen Stealers Wheel, bland annat med singeln ”Stuck in the middle with you”.

Enligt BBC hade Rafferty alkoholproblem, En sviktande lever anges som dödsorsak. Gerry Rafferty gick bort den 4 januari i sitt hem i Bournemouth i södra England. Hans dotter Martha vakade vid dödsbädden.

Det mäktiga saxofonsolot i ”Baker street” har en speciell historia. Riffet var avsett för gitarr, men när den tilltänkte gitarristen inte kunde komma till studion blev det i stället Raphael Ravenscroft som fick träda in med sin saxofon. Han var på plats för att bidra med ett mindre saxinslag när chansen att få breda ut sig dök upp. Ravenscroft var inte nödbedd, saxsolot spelades in och gav Raffertykompositionen speciell karaktär. Texten ger också en del att tänka på, lyssan gärna på låten och begrunda texten som det finns en lite bit av nedan.

Förutom albumet "City to City" rekommenderar jag också "Sleepwalking" och "North and South" som är av högsta kvalitet.

---

Way down the street there's a lad in his place
He opens the door he's got that look on his face
And he asks you where you've been
You tell him who you've seen
And you talk about anything

He's got this dream about buyin' some land
He's gonna give up the booze and the one night stands
And then he'll settle down there's a quiet little town
And forget about everything
