Brian Protheroe :: Pinball

We may or may not have a playlist entitled Let’s Have Sax — one entirely comprised of vintage pop tunes with choice saxxy interludes. We’re not saying we do… but if we did, the elegant one-hit wonder that is Brian Protheroe’s “Pinball” would surely slide in midway through. Released in 1974, “Pinball” scratches that mid-decade McCartney itch, much in the same way as, say, Emitt Rhodes or a nice, sweet hit of Gerry Rafferty.
