Steely Dan - One Hour Sale - 2003 - Reprise/Terra Nova PRO-CD

One Hour Sale! is a 2003 Us 15-Track Promo-Only CD featuring an Interview with Walter Becker & Donald Fagen (Steely Dan), and 6 tracks from the "Everything Must Go" album. These "Limited Edition" hour long releases are exclusive "conversations" with various artists issued to radio stations and reviewers ahead of the actual release date. CD's usually feature songs from the newly released CD as well as "live" bonus tracks unavailable elsewhere. The artists are interviewed by Jody Denberg, the program director at Austin's 107.1 KGSR radio. The projects are mastered by Jerry Tubb and Bill Johnson at Terra Nova. This album was aired on 6/10/03, from KGSR radio , Santa Monica. Interspersed between interview and advertising snippets, there are six full tracks on this album from the official EMG release. The tracks "Green Book", "Pixeleen", & "Lunch With Gina" from the official album are not featured on this promo. There is nothing on this particular release as regards bonus or live tracks, and it may only be of interest to die hard Steely Dan fans. This is a 128 Kbps version, but sound quality is quite good. This album is also available on this blog at a higher bitrate. Check out full details of the EMG album @ EMG

I like "Everything Must Go" a lot. It's amazing to me that "Two Against Nature" was the Grammy darling a few years earlier, and yet this album, which I think is almost as good, didn't get a single nomination. I think the title track is one of the best songs they've ever done, and one reason is because it's one of their very few that expresses emotion! Thanks for posting this.

Hi,Memo2Self. The guys have been overlooked for years. If you listen to this promo album you will hear some of their sardonic comments. They actually couldn't care less about awards. However, they always cared about their fans. Interesting point you make about emotion in their songs. I think their Deacon Blues track from their Aja album is full of pent up emotion. It's my favourite SD track, and I have often choked up when I listen to it. Maybe it's because that particular song reminds me of a very special time in my life when I met a girl I love back in 77. Thanks for comment. Keep in touch...P.
