I don't recall hearing about Marvin Braxton... seems he is known as "Crazy
Marvin"  Braxton.
I will have to do some research on him.

The Gery Rafferty song you are referring to is probably "City to City" from
his Baker Street album.
I always loved that album... and that was around 1978 (?), about the time I
started playing harmonica.
I might not have even know that was harmonica on the album until a few
years later !
Yes, it was Paul Jones... somehow figured that out, as I have it noted in
my iTunes library.

I didn't find out Norton Buffalo's real name, until after his passing, and
his wikipedia information was updated.

I think Lee Oskar and Leslie are divorced... and Lee has a new bride.
