Rikki Don’t Lose That Number

This is my cover of a single released in 1974 by Steely Dan and the opening track of their third album Pretzel Logic. It was the most successful single of the group’s career, peaking at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the summer of 1974.

The guitar solo on the original is by Jeff “Skunk” Baxter who would soon go on to join The Doobie Brothers.

Donald Fagen revealed that the “Rikki” in question was simply a woman he’d had a crush on in college [writer Rikki Ducornet].

This version performed, recorded and produced at Baselines Designs Studio by Steve Keith.

  1. Nice take on this cover Steve sounds well mixed and pretty faithful to the original here on the Events.
