This city desert makes you feel so cold
It's got so many people, but it's got no soul
And it's taken you so long
To find out you were wrong
When you thought it held everything

Heavily influenced by some of some of our favourite musicians we been working hard on a brand new project... Watch this space... #inspiration #madness #bakerstreet #gerryrafferty #newmusic #cancerbats #soundtrack #watchthisspace #bringonthetrumpets #lifeisawesome - The Turning Tides Project

Union Jack stamper US pressing. I don't know how other pressings compare, but this is a looong album, cut very quietly to fit everything on there. If the original masters are any good at all, this could certainly benefit from being split into two discs at higher volume. Very clean copy though. #gerryrafferty #citytocity #vinyl #vinylcommunity

Queue the saxophone

So cool being on "the tube." Subways are usually kind of boring, but in London, The Underground has a personality. I can't imagine going to London and not riding it or a double decker bus!
I don't know what sticks out in my mind more when I think of Baker Street. Gerry Rafferty or Sherlock Holmes?

Way down the street there's a light 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 buying some land
He's gonna give up the booze and the one-night stands
And then he'll settle down
In some quiet little town
And forget about everything
But you know he'll always keep moving
You know he's never gonna stop moving
'Cause he's rolling, he's the rolling stone
And when you wake up, it's a new morning
The sun is shining, it's a new morning
And you're going, you're going home

Winding your way down on Baker Street
Light in your head and dead on your feet
Well, another crazy day
You'll drink the night away
And forget about everything
This city desert makes you feel so cold
It's got so many people, but it's got no soul
And it's taken you so long
To find out you were wrong
When you thought it held everything
You used to think that it was so easy
You used to say that it was so easy
But you're trying, you're trying now
Another year and then you'd be happy
Just one more year and then you'd be happy
But you're crying, you're crying now

Primarily remembered for #bakerstreet - and what a record to be remembered for, #gerryrafferty released several great albums in the course of twenty-five years*, but my favorite track is still #rightdowntheline. For reasons lost to time, in the US the master tape was speeded up a smidge, creating a bit more urgency that makes the tongue-tied chorus more poignant. *shameless self promotion: yours truly wrote the liner notes for the #vareseserabande compilation of Rafferty's work, which sounds amazing - with single mixes & b-sides not found elsewhere - and beautiful art direction by #billpitzonka. Check it out! #unitedartistsrecords #1978
