Gerry Rafferty – Baker Street

Gerald Rafferty (16 April 1947 – 4 January 2011) was a Scottish rock singer-songwriter. His solo hits in the late 1970s included “Baker Street“, “Right Down the Line” and “Night Owl”, as well as “Stuck in the Middle with You”, which was recorded with the band Stealers Wheel in 1973.

Rafferty was born into a working-class family in Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland. His mother taught him both Irish and Scottish folk songs when he was a boy; later, he was influenced by the music of The Beatles and Bob Dylan. He joined the folk-pop group The Humblebums, (of which Billy Connolly was a member), in 1969.

After they disbanded in 1971, he recorded his first solo album, Can I Have My Money Back?. Rafferty and Joe Egan formed the group Stealers Wheel in 1972 and produced several hits, most notably “Stuck in the Middle with You” and “Star”. In 1978, he recorded his second solo album, City to City, which included “Baker Street“, his most popular song.

DJ Funkshion – Beastie Grooves 2

My second Beastie Boys mix. This is fire. Hotter than the first one where I used instrumental versions only. This one has vocals and instrumentals as well. Took me a little more time to prepare this one. Enjoyed every moment in preparing and making this one though 😉

My first Beastie Boys mix:

Covid-Nonsense VS lemmings VS better listen to some Fela Kuti

Had to visit Babylon in my hometown unfortunately. Not on a voluntary basis of course. Conclusion: Covid-Nonsense attacked and destroyed Babylon seriously luckily. Pretty almost all things have it’s positive side as well 😉

“My children and I broke bread to this music the other day. Afterwards, we danced and danced. The energy was so real! We hugged and danced some more. My adult son had tears in his eyes, he felt it so strongly.”

“Only a legend like Fela Anikulapo Kuti, can play an instrumental and songs in one album for one straight hours plus and the listeners will not be bored….In fact, you will be sorry whenever the music ends. Rest on in peace,, ancestor Fela.”

” I can just close my eyes and VIBEE to this for hours and hours. Just close your eyes and listen. Nothing more”

“Fela has no comparison. Been listening to him for 40+ years”

“A king will always be a king even in death. You taught Africa and the world through your songs how to be right and just. RIP king of afrobeat.”

“There is something legendary about his horn, more like his voice. Nobody on earth plays this exact way.”

“I remember my dad played this,when I was about 5..Grew up searching for it and found him again.. Thx Fela sleep my brother….”
