Gerry Rafferty is God
Many one hit wonders fall away as novelty acts. But every once in a while an unsung artist--a musician that is as good or better than others in their genre of music--goes barely heard. Gerry Rafferty was such a musician. With a voice like a prophet, he sings of large themes, life themes, and every song shines hope and meaning as if a beacon of joy. So much more than Baker Street and Right Down The Line, Mr. Gerry Rafferty.
It's a shame that he had to pass away for me to play his catalogue of songs, and to discover a dusty attic trunk full of songs that will have meaning for my life from this day forward.
