A formidable onslaught of 60s threw our 70s music into disarray. But now the 70s regroups, launches a counter-assault, and takes back some ground. There is partial frontal exposure in one picture but it appears as a photographic negative so you won’t notice at all . . .
I’m very glad Nightsky reintroduced me to this group. Not that I ever forgot them, I just never stopped and listened much before. Lots of things to listen to here, but I’m noticing the awesome level of the arrangement and rhythm section. This and probably Aja were my other favorite songs (besides Deacon Blues, posted below).
Steely Dan Youtubes seem to be a real labor of love. They also tend to match my color scheme real well. Win win.

Someday that copyright issue is going to create a quandary for this joint, which seems one degree removed from the gritty reality of Toob copyright infringement issues. The thing about Youtubes, though, is that they lead me to purchase music. In the past few years I’ve bought about 200 CDs directly as a result of hearing music on Youtube, and this includes Aja. A lot of the music here I either bought or plan to buy. In a sense you can think of most of the music on this blog, outside of the Sunday specials, as a record of my music purchases.
