And the thing is unlike so many other artists you can play their tunes to death and they never get stale. Obviously the details and thought put into everything they recorded.And my favourite of their albums is constantly changing but currently I'd say this was my number 1. Hey Nineteen and Babylon Sisters are the very definition of cool,adult, intelligent jazzy popular music. And the rest aren't far behind.
Steely Dan have always been a group that even those who think they're too cool for conventional rock have always admitted to liking (many of those in the electronic dance, funk or jazz worlds)and have never got out of fashion with those who appreciate quality music.A good way of finding out if a person's ideas about music were worthwhile or downright embarrassing was to see what their opinion of Steely Dan were. Probably because in the popular music of the last 60 or 70 years things never anymore well-crafted than Steely Dan.
Interestingly given the obsessive perfectionism (and bad luck) that plagued this album, it features fewer session players than previous albums, and Becker & Fagen perform on more tracks.
Babylon Sisters is as good as anything Becker & Fagen ever recorded. Bernard Purdie's drums are incredible (and were the basis of Jeff Pocaro's famous Rosanna beat), but there are amazing details in what is an apparantly minimal arrangement, including bass clarinets, muted clavinet, as a serpentine chord progression that no one else could have dreamed up. It's also extremely funky!
Hey Nineteen is borderline embarassing - the humour just on the wrong side of funny - and features Roger Nichols' peculiarly static Wendel drum sequencer programme, even though a drummer is credited (as is the case with Glamour Profession and My Rival).
Glamour Profession lasts rather longer than the musical interest can sustain but is rescued by an amazing guitar solo by Steve Khan.
Gaucho is, along with Babylon Sisters and Third World Man, one of the three great tracks here. It has a Keith Jarrett inspired chord sequence and solo tenor sax line (for which the erascible Mr Jarrett sued & won a share of the writing credit) but again it has a deceptively simple arrangement and extremely funny lyrics about a socially aspirant queen and his partner who is unduly interested in a bit of Brazilian rough.Read more ›
