My late father, Lewis Edgar Dyer, a Spanish Creole chap, originally from North Carolina, and a proud Penn Brancher, LOVED this song, Gerry Rafferty's moody, seductive, complex BAKER STREET. At the time of its release, its edgy sophistication left exotica, Motown, Woodstock and punk twisting in the rearview. There was nothing like it! It was ahead of its time, and it's no surprise that it inspired some of the most iconic music of the 1980s, ..or that it has become the Hipster Anthem... Even if the hipsters have forgotten that. Anyway, ..Daddy would play it, over and over again, on the family Victrola; so, naturally, it continues one of my favorite songs.
