Tom Robinson – Rikki Don’t Lose That Number (12″)

numberfrontcovFrom 1984 and it finds Tom Robinson using synths! “Rikki…” was originally written by the Steely Dan duo of Donald Fagan and Walter Becker. Yes, there is a synth bass bubbling along in the background, Robinson succumbing to technology. The 12″ version is produced by the legend that is Robin Millar and like a lot of the posts on this blog sank into obscurity! Expect and receive saxophone remember it is the 80’s. It was taken from his album , “Hope & Glory.” This is backed by the innuendo filled , live version of “Cabin Boy” as quick as the album version with the band in full swing, jeez Tom, calm down!
