... and i had this one lined up for a future "It Doesn't Get Much Better Than..."


there's nobody that doesn't dig "Baker Street", surely?

the sax, the keyboard curlicues, the little shiver and twinkles of synth, the guitar break

pure quality

#2 US, #3 UK - 1978 - a different era... when pop could be simply adult (see also Rumours) ... all craft and substance

(c.f. the "children's entertainment" (Alan Kirby) that largely comprises today's "digimodernist" (Alan Kirby) pop culture)

let's have it again, full length and stereo (with crap imagery to boot)

they don't make em like this anymore do they?
