'Baker Street' is a great story and a fantastic piece of music with brilliant guitar and sax solos.
I toured with the Doobie Brothers last year and really enjoyed hearing them play this song. It's got a laid back groove and the lyrics reflect my sentiments about music too...just let it flow. They are all wonderful people and gifted musicians.
I used to sing this song in my very early teenage band days. A masterpiece composition.
One of the coolest records ever made...in my humble opinion. If I knew what makes it so cool I would bottle it and give it away.
My man...Albert King. I love this song, his singing and his playing -- incomparable...deep blues infused with soul.
When I performed at the 2007 Ahmet Ertegun (celebration of life) concert in London at the O2 arena (some referred to it as the Led Zeppelin Reunion concert), they played 'Kashmir' -- the relentless drum beat, amazing vocals, and Indian-influenced strings. Add Jimmy Page and it was pure magic.
Damn I wish I'd written this song. A great chorus.
Sex on a six-string. One of the greatest 12-bar blues on record.
My feeling is that this song came direct from planet Lennon, so unique and otherworldly.
