92 Steely Dan – Part 1 of 2.

We had failed to notice that it was Mother’s Day in the US and so our audience was less than expected. Undaunted, a comprehensive show was presented covering Steely Dan from first steps to greatest triumph, the album Aja.
Preshow was mainly early demos, with the addition of a track from Jay and the Americans on which Donald Fagen and Walter Becker were in the group, and Kid Charlemagne, a taster for what’s to come, with a superb lead guitar track from Larry Carlton.
Postshow contained fallers, tracks from the albums that didn’t quite make it to the show (only for lack of time, or I’d have put them all in), plus Larry Carlton’s room 335, which was written after being beaten to the solo spot in Peg by Jay Graydon, and uses the same chords. A great show.
