Long long lonely taxi ride

Mark-Almond, Other People's Rooms (A&M 1978)
Jazzy soft-rockers go fusion and reach beardo heaven (somebody should loop up that intro). This must have been Mark-Almond's favorite song they ever wrote because I have three versions of it without really trying (self-titled debut, live on 73, and this one). Aggressively mellow.
