David Robinson played drums on Tears Are Not Enough, Alphabet Soup and Surrender, before being replaced by David Palmer. He does not get a written performance credit but the lyric to Alphabet Soup states "Perfect rhythm is the sign of a true thoroughbred. Meet drum aristocrat, Mr. David Robinson. A sucker, a sucker for syncopation!". Part of this can be seen in the handwritten lyric on page 8 of the booklet, and his departure is mentioned on page 11.

At the end of The Look Of Love (Part IV) it fades out unlike all other versions on other pressings of the album.
