Musical Interlude: Baker Street (1977)

Former Stealers Wheel frontman Gerry Rafferty became a solo act again with the release of "City to City" in 1977, and that album produced a pair of hits, "Right Down the Line" and, of course, "Baker Street". As the video suggests, the song was written as a homage to the area's most famous ficticious citizen, Sherlock Holmes.

"Baker Street" is still getting good airplay on radio today, mostly on adult contemporary and oldies channels.
