Musical Interlude: Urgent (1981)

Right before I graduated from high school, Foreigner released the album, "4". The first single, "Urgent", was in heavy airplay on local radio throughout that summer. But what you might not know is that the sax solo on the track was actually performed by Motown legend Junior Walker. A then-unknown Thomas Dolby, a year away from his debut record, contributed to the track as well. Neither Walker nor Dolby appeared in the video, however.
