Vince Gill surreally gorgeous one two
Donald drove us right over a cliff.
Donald Fagen and Walter Becker will be back in NYC
Becker clearly stated at show start that they would be doing the hits
Fagen’s voice was never great, and the years haven’t been kind to it. Fortunately it is augmented by three slinkily clad background singers including Cindy Mizelle who is also an E Street Choir member. With their great voices Fagen didn’t really have to sing much. Becker contributed some fine lead guitar and some amusing stage patter.
Time Out Of Mind – Steely Dan – Dylan has an album with the same name, only 20 years later!

Ok, we’re all patiently waiting for guitarist alumni Larry Carlton’s solo on “Kid Charlemagne” and since this is “The Royal Scam” night where Steely Dan are to play one of their classic albums from beginning to end before a second act of greatest hits and it is as remorselessly perfect as on the album

“If it’s good to ya, it’s gotta be good for ya…” Jerome Aniton was the truck driver for Steely Dan during their early 70’s tours. It is June, 1974. Steely Dan is playing at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in sunny California). Jerome, intoxicated beyond the Milky Way, steps on stage to introduce the band…” – A
Watching The Wheels – John Lennon – This songs as a signpost and it reads the future of a great songwriter, able to turn the most personal aspects of his life and politics into a share . This is the acoustic demo featured on the end credits of “Funny People” – A
Walking On Air – Katy Perry – By the numbers disco cropper up to nothing much but what it does do, play off its drum patterns, should get the kiddies dancing – B-
Blondie at Highline were just incredible, you could feel Debbie’s star power tingling and X? And John Doe performing “Look How We Are”? Worth the price of admission in itself. Both bands on the same bill is a real thrill, so get thrilled at Roseland on Friday October 4th
