Seeing all these Steely Dan/Donald Fagen fans here warms my heart.

I even went so far as to get my hands on a Steely Dan bootleg concert video, and alternative audio sources to make a surround-sound DVD of the concert. Probably my crowning achievement in editing.

Some dude ripped it and put it on youtube here, but you really need to sit down with a nice screen and a home theater to appreciate it.

Weather in my Head so far is my favorite. Guitarcentric Dan style tune.

Looks like I'll be doing a "Yacht Rock" marathon on YouTube tonight.

rickythepenguin: Walt_Jizzney: michael McDonald backing vocals on "Peg" makes me chuckle....


there's a cool youtube video of Fagen and Becker playing the multitracks from that session, with interview of the musicians. the bassist is like, "at the time, popping the bass was the new thing but they didn't want that, but......I popped all over that record" and they play it and you hear it.

Michael McDonald I think said he was singing in thirds for his backing vocals, and it was hard as shiat since that chord spacing / interval is uncommon in Western music but it is what Fagen wanted.

check it out. it is pretty awesome.


I've watched them before...it's really cool. I like how the bassist kinda ignored him and just stayed in the pocket. Worked out well!

On a semi-related note - this version of "Do It Again" is a proto-mashup; It came out in like 1986. It is the vocals of Do It Again over music to Billie Jean - it strangely worked. The vocals aren't too offensive. I was listening to it from aniTalo Disco compilation but you can find a similar version on iTunes here:

markie_farkie: The Nightfly was the very first CD I purchased way back in 1984. It's still in my rotation and ranks as one of my top ten albums ever.

Now excuse me while I go don my spandex jacket.


My first was Pretzel Logic. And a few weeks later The Nightfly. Probably around 85 or 86. I still think its a contender for best album of the 80s.

Get off my lawn, I bought Pretzel Logic when it came out on vinyl in 1974. First Steely Dan album I bought...then went backwards to get the others, then kept up with releases. First CD I bought was Steely Dan "Decade" since the full albums weren't available.

But let's not let this become a Steely Dan fan dick-measuring contest.

That came out in 1983 in the wake of Billie Jean, it was by Slingshot. The bass line and rhythmic feel in Billie Jean owes quite a bit to Do It Again.

I always liked Steely Dan growing up, but that Classic Album's doc made me into a huge fan. Albums like Aja really mark the golden age of analog recording.

I thought it was by Clubhouse?!?! Is this a cover of a cover? I owned the 12" back in the day - it was on Atlantic records.....

the_rev: I tried my luck at raising some baby ducks last year. I named the first four Becker, Fagen, Josie and Peg.

Later I added Dupree, Janine, Charlemagne, and Deacon. Maybe a couple more... I forget. But I live in a place with too many predators. My duck luck sucked.


Many years ago, I was put in charge of naming some of the computers at the school at which I was teaching. We had Peg, Josie, Cousin DuPre, and...Mr. LaPage.

My only real issue with the Classic Album's doc is that there was not a single mention of Steve Gadd's near legendary work on the title track (at least Purdie gets some interview time so it gets points there)
