It's a baritone sax solo played by Herb Hardesty:Charlie wrote:16. Fats Domino, Blue Monday (Lee Allen, I think)
If I have to nominate one to throw out to accommodate Jr Walker, let it be "Baker Street". The sax solo is certainly notable, but it's too sacharine and lacks spark and spontaneity for me, I've never liked it.
Baker Street' is so unusual in being an easy listening classic with a very unusual sax part, I think it should stay there to confirm we are not completely adrift from reality. Apart from which, I really like the record.

I just spoke to Richard, who is near-to-certain it was Steve Douglas who played the tenor sax solo on He's a Rebel. Jay Migliori was a baritone sax player.Charlie wrote:+ In his book about producer Phil Spector, Richard Williams notes that the usual sax players on Spector's early LA sessions were Steve Douglas and Jay Migliori, so it's unlikely that Plas Johnson was on â€˜Heâ€™s a Rebelâ€™, as Norman guessed.
