Number One is the first album released by indie rock band Racine. The band was fronted by Wendy James, who was notable for previously being the lead singer of the late 80's pop/rock band Transvision Vamp.

After the disbandment of Transvision Vamp in the early 90's, Wendy James ventured into a short lived solo career, culminating in the release of her debut album Now Ain't the Time for Your Tears in 1993. The album was not a success and James dropped from the music scene for many years until re-establishing herself as an independent artist with new band Racine. The band, fronted and nurtured by James, also consisted of Singh Birdsong on guitar and Ray Sullivan on drums.[1]

Number One was released in late September, 2004 and provided Wendy James with her first music release in over a decade. A single, "Grease Monkey" was released soon after.
