"Reelin' in the Years", Steely Dan

Yes, you've heard it one hundred, two hundred, maybe three hundred times, I understand that.  But hear it again, and watch the incredible musicians performing it in the moment.  A fine piece of video to have available forty years on...

(Also, I posted a poem by William Burroughs yesterday, and Steely Dan takes their name from an object in Burroughs' Naked Lunch - well, a strap-on dildo, in truth.  Utter coincidence, believe it or not, having these posts back to back - it didn't even occur to me until I was typing out the subject line just now.)

Reelin' in the Years...
