With the release of their very first studio album in 1972 (titled "Can't Buy A Thrill"), Steely Dan (from NYC) were definitely well on their way to rock'n'roll superstardom. Delivering such catchy tunes as "Reelin' In The Years", Steely Dan became an instant critical and commercial success all across Canada, the USA, and beyond.

Headlined by the songwriting team of Donald Fagen (vocals, keyboards) and Walter Becker (guitars, vocals), Steely Dan's music was a sharp and finely-tuned fusion of rock mixed generously with the genres of up-tempo Jazz and smooth Rhythm & Blues.

But, alas, trouble and strong disagreement quickly began to brew over the musical direction that their tunes were taking. And so it was in 1981 that Steely Dan arrived at its inevitable break-up, with Fagen and Becker both pursuing solo careers.

This "Greatest Hits" CD contains 18 tracks in all which Steely Dan had recorded between the years of 1972-1978. Three of my favourites in this compilation are - Reelin' In The Years, Do It Again, and Rikki Don't Lose That Number (watch video).

Why can't I see a list of title tracks from the LP?
