The following email is from a friend in the UK who is helping me with a project about saxophone solos in Top 40 hits from 1955-2011.

Does anyone know who played the tenor sax solo on this version?

Thanks
John Laughter


"There's a version of this that has no sax. I just heard it played on the radio with a sax and assume the UK version may be different to the US one. Perhaps the version on Youtube is later one that was used in a film (Streets of Fire).
Album credits do not name the sax player - though Ernie Watts appears on a different track.

Thanks. I will add a footnote in the book about Ernie Watts & Amo Hecht. I sent an email to the producers and will send one to Watts' manager to see if she knows.
