Rayman’s Song of the Day-Urgent by Foreigner [VIDEO]

(Photo Thinkstock)

Foreigner wanted a “Junior Walker-style” sax solo for this record. When they took a break from recording, one of the members read in New York newspaper The Village Voice that Walker was performing that night mere blocks from the recording studio. Walker accepted their offer to play, and the recording of the sax solo was swift and without a hitch.

NOTE: In his book Big Man, Clarence Clemons says that he is the one who recorded the sax solo in Urgent. I’ve  read the book several times, and I for one believe Clarence is correct, although many record books also say the sax player was Autry Dewalt- Mixam, better known as Junior Walker. It wouldn’t be the first time record books were incorrect.
