Get this crazy baby off my head!


Steely Dan

Steely Dan - VH1 Storytellers TV Broadcast Audio Only - 2000

This show was first taped at New York's Sony Studios on February 1st, 2000. The band played ten songs, including three from 2VN. The recording also included an audience Q & A session. The show was originally broadcast on April 24th, 2000, with the eight songs listed here. The DVD has bonus footage of interviews and jam sesions on CNN, Today Show, E, Letterman, and Rock and the Dan's Roll Hall of Fame induction

N.B: Track 1, "FM" is not the complete song; more a TV doccumentary type intro. Track 6, "Do It Again" is the same. The broadcast's ad breaks accounted for this. The show is one 192kbps mp3 audio file, and sound quality is ok. In between tracks, there is some good banter between the audience, and Don, and Walt.


1 FM [intro]
2 Peg
3 Kid Charlemagne
4 Bad Sneakers
5 Josie
6 Do It Again [part]
7 Cousin Dupree
8 What A Shame About Me

All songs composed by Donald Fagen, and Walter Becker

Hi, Eric. "Brass Monkey" weather where I am too. The album is good. Ad breaks were intrusive, but the band sounds good. TTU soon...Thanks

Thanks. Haven't heard this one before. The more Steely Dan the better.

Hi, Mike. It's ok. Two of the tracks are incomplete with TV ad breaks, but better than nothing! Steely Dan recordings of decent quality are as rare as hen's teeth! TTU soo, and thanks
