Miss You
Every once in a while one of these supergroups will bring in guest musicians to just mess around and have fun. So Billy Preston was in the studio with Mick Jagger and they were just jamming, playing some stuff, singing, and horsing around. And they came up with this, which ended up being a huge number 1 hit for the Rolling Stones, it’s from the album some girls. It features of course Mick Jagger and the whole group, Billy Preston didn’t play on the recording, but he was an inspiration for “Miss You.”

Baker Street
The singing artist Gerry Rafferty use to sing with group called Steelers Wheel, and then he was done with them. He wanted to go out and do his own thing, have his own solo career, but he had these contracts he with Steelers Wheel he had to do deal with. So he would travel on the overnight train from his home town of Glasgow, Scotland down to London to meet with Lawyers. Every week he would take this train. And he had a buddy that lived off a street in London called Baker Street. So he’d go and meet with lawyers and then go to his buddy’s house on Baker street and sit around and play guitar in the night and talk about how things are going, which was a bummer. Finally he got it all done and released an album called City to City and this is the song by Gerry Rafferty off on his own. On this date it reached number 2 on the Hot 100 charts .
