Gerry Rafferty: “Coconut Tree”

5 Jan

Gerry Rafferty was best known, of course, for Baker Street, Right Down The Line and Stealers Wheel’s Stuck In The Middle With You — he made nearly $125,000 a year in royalties on Baker Street alone. But my favorite was a compilation of his music with the The Humblebums, a collection of short, snappy pop songs which hinted at the loneliness and demons which haunted him. Coconut Tree is from that album. RIP.
