Pretzel Logic comments
Comments for the album Pretzel Logic by Steely Dan:
Steely Dan are one of the great bands, and this for me is their best album amongst many great ones
sit back and enjoy these brooklyn freaks at their best...with whatever poison you choose...it makes no sense but it's brilliant
Best track: Rikki Don't Lose That Number
nice but nothing is really standing out for me
ffud, you are correct. When listening to that song, make sure the recording includes the odd introduction that sounds like a marimba being played underwater. They go on to "sample" the introduction to Horace Silver's jazz classic "Song for My Father," another classic album.
There are many tributes to their jazz mentors here, including the only cover song (and only instrumental except "FM-Reprise")they ever did: Duke Ellington's "East St. Louis Toodle-oo," Ellington's theme song before "Take the A-Train." Plus, the song called "Mr. Parker's Band."
Isn't rikki don't lose that number on this album?
This is a seriously great album that would be on my chart if we had more room. It will probably be on my chart soon anyway. Ugh, 40 albums does not go very far. You explain whats great about Steely Dan really with two words; Jazz & Cocaine. The bands use of cocaine has been widely chronicalled. It is to cocaine what the Velvet Underground & Nico is to heroin or Surrealistic Pillow is to LSD. This is also one of those informed musicial experiences that just makes you feel smarter by the time the record is over, like you've spend 40 minutes picking the brain of some panel of jazz hepcats. It melds jazz with pop on a level Rumours did but just leaves out that records California country cool AM style. Please oh BEA admin guy increase our chart sizes soon.
