Reelin In The Years

Well we ran our first 60s flashback Tuesday. Today is our first look back at the 70s. Kickin' us off is Steely Dan, often referred to as a jazz-rock outfit, who wryly named themselves after the steam-powered dildo in William Burroughs' novel The Naked Lunch.
The mainstays of Steely Dan were Walter Becker and Donald Fagen each of whom have issued solo albums throughout the years. The group was very popular during the 70s in particular, issuing 7 albums throughout the decade, beginning with their debut rlease Can't Buy A Thrill. Here's a performance of a cut from that album "Reelin' In The Years"...
