First Song - Baker Street

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:10 pm on 20 October 2015

In 2014, Raphael Ravenscroft who played the sax riff on the Gerry Rafferty hit 'Baker Street' died aged 60, of a suspected heart attack. He was only paid £27.50 for the 'Baker Street' session, and it has been reported that the cheque bounced and that it was kept on the wall of Ravenscroft's solicitors; by contrast the song is said to have earned Rafferty £80,000 a year in royalties.
