    Steely Dan's Aja, Awesome Music!!

    For me, Steely Dan's "Aja" is the best music for relaxing in the middle of a sunny day, it's just awesome. I wonder if Steely Dan is blind or not? no offense but, he just looks like one especially if he's wearing his glasses, but I don't know if it's Steely Dan though, maybe it's...

    What A Shame About Me

    One of the things I like about Steely Dan is that Becker and  Fagan have a soft spot for losers.  Who else would write a song that was sympathetic to someone who pi**ed his life away? I was grinding through my day gig Stackin' cutouts at the Strand When in walks...

    Chinese Music

    Aja alone is enough to put Steely Dan in the rock and roll hall of fame. It was the most perfect album.  But their music was the sound track to the 70s to me.  They were mellow without becoming elevator music.  And there was a certain amount of fun in the lyrics, as well...

    The 1957 Tail-fin Fiasco

    Steely Dan fans - Check out London based band The 1957 Tail-Fin Fiasco. A massive doff of the cap to Mr Fagen & Becker. Not sure how to post the link but you can find them on Soundcloud - It's a terrific thing x

    Aja Tour

    Gorgeous Cover Of...

    Daddy Don't Live In That New York City No More by Steely Dan. The notation under the clip says arrangement by Tom Aversano. I just found this on YouTube. I usually don't like cover bands...especially of SD. But this is an incredible exception.  Very haunting...I simply love...

    Reeling In The Years

    I may be getting old, but Steely Dan never does. In fact, their old albums, especially, Aja, and Can't Buy a Thrill, sound better to me. These days, Fagan and Becker even seemed to be happy to perform live. Dirty Work, Black Cow, Peg, FM, My Old School they are classics.I can...
