The old song "Shame" by Evelyn Champagne King has a most wonderful saxophone throughout. It matches the song perfectly, wailing accordingly.  To this day, it's one of my top fave sax displays all the way to the end!  Check it out Bob.  Another favorite of mine is the sax in "Can't You Hear Me Knockin" by the Stones. Great instrumentation section later in the song with a fantastic sax!

"The Working Hour" - Tears For Fears - On the original recording the sax by - William Gregory and Mel Collins, with Gregory doing the solo.

On a 2014 live Tears For Fears video a hauntingly beautiful job on sax by David Moyer. (I  love David's playing on this song.)

It is a great song either way.
