    To the great selections mentioned above I'll add Billy Joel's "Scenes from an Italian Restaurant" and the "Chicago II" album (it was released in 1970).

    I can't believe nobody's mentioned Pete Christlieb's gorgeous solo on Steely Dan's "Deacon Blues."

    In my opinion it's the benchmark for pop-rock sax.

    Mockingbird - James Taylor, Carly Simon, M. Brecker, absolutely astounding solo .... pure sound .... no technique ....

    If the Crusaders count .... Put It Where You Want It.... any band with a sax should do this tune .... wicked ....

    How about Huey Lewis Trouble in Paradise? You've probably never heard it...kind of obscure. It was recorded live and featured on the "We are the World" album. Screaming altissimo work. Check it out.

    Did anyone include:

    Just the Two of Us - GW, Jr.
    Young Americans - Bowie
    One More Night - Collins
    Smoke from a Distant Fire - Sanford Townsen
    1952 The Martin Tenor Silver - RPC 110R
    1928 Buescher TT Soprano (straight) - Selmer Super Session H

    +3 Crusaders... they were all over the '70s (still doing it)
    My wife, whose ears I trust, said that my sound is much fuller, richer, more powerful and resonant on this set up.
    ... but really folks... my wife said, " It sounds like a saxophone ".

    I'll second that! Turn the Page is my favorite Seger song, and it is also one of those that helped me pick up the sax. I also love anything of the Springsteen songs.

    Another of my favorites is anything by George Thorogood with a sax solo. Just got that great sound to me .

    Default 70's stuff

    Since growing up mainly in the 70's I'll go ahead and list just those years. Actually there are too many to list them all, many already posted. The great thing about that time is that it was not uncommon to have a sax playing in a song that was at the top of the charts or played alot on the radio. Not to mention the bands with horn sections such as Chicago, Earth Wind and Fire and yes even KC & the Sunshine band.

    My old school - Steely Dan - 1973 - alto, tenor
    Jazzman - Carol King - 1974 - tenor
    Young Americans - David Bowie - 1974 - alto
    Listen to what the man said - Paul McCartney & Wings - 1975 - soprano
    How sweet it is - James Taylor - 1975 - alto
    Pick up the Pieces - Average White Band - 1975 - tenor, alto
    Give a little bit - Supertramp - 1977 - alto
    The year of the cat - Al Stewart - 1977 - alto
    Just the way you are - Billy Joel - 1977 - tenor
    Decon Blues - Steely Dan - 1977 tenor
    FM - Steely Dan - 1978 - tenor
    Shame - Evelyn Champagne King - 1978 - alto
    Ooh Baby Baby - Linda Ronstadt - 1978 - alto
    I love the nightlife - Alicia Bridges - 1978 - alto
    Baker Street - Gerry Rafferty - 1978 - alto
    Feels so good - Chuck Mangione - 1978 - flugal horn, tenor - try long version
    After the love is gone - Earth Wind & Fire - 1979 - alto
    Street life - Crusaders - 1979 - tenor

    The solo that first popped into mind was Lenny Pickett's solo on Elton John's The Bitch is Back.

    When I was a kid Dire Straits were the best band in the universe.
    Your Latest Trick has the nicest sax that I can think of, it's a tenor.
    On an opposite note I hated Baker Street for many years, just really hated it, not sure why and i'm not wanting to upset all those that like it. I'm ok now.
