From 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!
