For all us wounded souls, a love song straight out of Heaven
Thank-you, Mark for posting this. It's from a much better time. Better music, too.
How did you not hear that before? Shocker. It's awesome - haven't heard in decades. Thank you! Does a wounded soul good. Best to you.
The late great Gerry Rafferty - the first cassette I ever bought when I was a poor student in Glasgow, his home city I believe.☘️
It's like Wallensky is singing this to me right now. I am suffused with warmth knowing the CDC loves and cares for me
I grew up with it too. Even have one of his
Records. His best song “is stuck in the
Middle with You”
Better than Kneel Young.
Seriously!!!😆🤣 Sr. are you in this planet 🌎 😬 just kidding 😉❤️love this song 👍 thanks 🙏
Always loved this song!
I inherited a bunch of albums from my uncle and sister (who is eight years older than me) over the years - hundreds. One of them is Rafferty's 'City to City' and so I know this song. I remember recording it on a cassette tape from my turn table. He had such a smooth, soothing guitar sound. Awesome stuff.
Songs like this are why those like Nirvana existed:
Several good songs on that album.
Love it! ♥️
I’d like to share my own labor of love... I am separated from my husband - not because we broke up - but because I had to move into my mother’s home in another state to care for her after she had a debilitating heart attack. The last few years have been filled with mishap and grief (as you have all experienced). I wrote this song for my husband just before the world turned upside down. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=wGepZUucDxY I miss him and this song post by Mark prompted me to share... take care everyone. Keep speaking the Truth!
It is on the "City to City" album with "Baker Street," which has one of the top 3 saxophone solos I've ever heard. He also did the song "Stuck in the Middle With You" with his band Stealers Wheel.
Thanks for sharing, Mark! I love Gerry Rafferty. I enjoyed punk at the time too, but even in the late 70s, soft rock could be generous and thoughtful. Did you ever listen to Al Stewart? I mean, really listen?
Keep up the great work!
The 70s..... Anaheim Convention Center. Saw Traffic - Stevie Winwood. Wish I'd also seen Blind Faith. Lord don't we need it now.
