speaking of my old school . . .

I picked up The Dan's Countdown to Ecstasy yesterday, finally, and it's an amazing album. I'm working slowly at establishing my collection. It's always kind of difficult to do with older bands who aren't really releasing anything anymore, because the collection is all there, and I don't know where to start. Especially with Steely Dan, since I know a fair amount of their stuff, and thus like a song or two on every album, and the rest is a crap shoot (Pretzel Logic? Okay, but not great. Aja? Awesome.)

But seriously. The vibes. The synth. The cheezy jazz guitar solos. The "Skunk." What more could I ask for? I shall be driving my roommates slightly edgy for weeks, I suspect.
