I n the olden days, luxuriating in the bounty of free time that befalls a bachelor, I might have spinned you a yarn about the difference between this four-minute version of Rikki and the original elpee version. But I’m married now, and I can’t begin to explain to my more practical half how listening to “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number” four times could possibly be more important than building yet another bookcase for the basement, so you’ll just have to use your imagination. Of course the vibe intro is gone. You knew that already if you remember this one from the radio back when. It also sounds faster, but that could be because the intro slowed things down so. Anyway there’s only about a half minute missing, no great mystery worth idling over. And surely there’s shelving or bookcasing or a discrete tunnel to the local pub that needs tending to.
