'Baker Street' Singer Gerry Rafferty Dies At 63

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Now let's remember a musician whose instruments conveyed a lot of emotion. Gerry Rafferty died this week at 63. He might have been most famous for the song "Baker Street," including a soaring saxophone solo. But this morning, we'll play a song from the same album called "The Arc."

Rafferty sings here about beginning a journey and hoping to meet again.

(Soundbite of song, "The Arc")

Mr. GERRY RAFFERTY (Singer, Songwriter): (Singing) And we'll sail out on the water. Yes, we'll feel the sea grow. Yes, we'll meet out on the water, where are all strangers are known.
