^^^The first three? Much more rock... even country rock oriented. That was Hodder and Baxter. Denny Dias was into C&W too.
Becker and Fagen were DEEP into ja-- and Fagen was as much a blues man as he was a Ja-- man.
If you listen to both "Two Against Nature" AND "Everything Must Go" you'll hear a SERIOUS Ja--/Blues fusion with a lot of FUNK thrown in for good measure.
I love ALL their stuff... from the beginning to the end.
And while I ALSO love Fagens solo work just as much, Beckers solo projects were straight GARBAGE.
I mean, when he titled his first solo album "11 Tracks of Wack" he wasn't kidding.
But in listening to Fagen's NYC Trilogy + 1 (The Nightfly, Kamakiriad, Morph The Cat, and Sunken Condos) you hear EVERYTHING that you love and loved about Steely Dan. The spare but complicated arrangements, tight composition, beautiful instrumentation, FANTASTIC performances, Fagen's nasal but emotive vocals, and thought provoking lyrics.
His work without Becker is as good as he work WITH him, but that doesn't negate Becker's contribution to one of the greatest musical collaborations of adult life.
Really enjoy this show. Finally caught up on season 2 on Netflix last week. Great characters and clever writing. Darkly humorous!
Having said that...I know this is a "Breaking Bad" prequel and that show got all kinds of accolades, but it never held my interest. I've tried watching that show several times and I always lose interest.
Maybe I'll give it a try again soon.
well that's interesting. So you've never gotten past season 1 on BB ?
I just need UK knocked out. I can't stand them either.
I'm just mind boggled!!
No One mentioned the MASTER of the Fretless Bass?
That dude did magic tricks on the bass!
