Let us know which song you like the most and if you want to recommend more music for our next show, please share here and let us know why.
I love when people tell me why this music piece is special for them; whether it is personal experience, just sound great to test audio gear, one thinks this is the greatest music artist, or the simply the best band.
Late night listen to KSAN, SF legendary AOR station....'bout 2~3am-ish, don't remember Why I was 'up' @ that time....but, obviously, old habits tend to 'beg to stick around'....
DJ between cuts has a fit on air....
"NO! I am NOT going to play Freebird Again this morning! Once is Enough....If you're that drunk or f'd up that you need to engage in some sort of 'my girl just broke it off on me and I need to go get in my car and go smack it into an oak... DO IT AND STOP CALLING! This is radio...not psycho therapy!"
...and launched an entire side of an album...
Don't remember Exactly what that album was, too busy laughing...
(Not an exact quote either, it was +/- 50 yrs. ago...)
Freebird....The perfect song for a drunk punk to get all whiney and pissed off at every thing and anything within a roundhouse swing....can't resist singing to it off-key and badly rendered....
"Ah kan't channnng....my pants are staiiiinnned e aaannndddd..." Etc. you get the pic? ;)

@asvjerry it's not sad, it's a good piece. There are bunch of pieces I love, but trying different songs that I haven't played at the show. We played this at AXPONA 2023. Maybe I will at CAF 2023 as well.
@re-lar-kvotheNew to me, but interesting piece. I am playing this on my headphones. 😀
@arafiqI dig any Nils Lofgren music. Tingvall Trio's album is beautiful. I am not familiar with Michael Wollny's music, I will make myself aquainted this week. Thank you so much for your recommendation.
I agree that "Aja" has reached cliche status as a demo song. After I obtained either Japanese imports (SHM's) or hybrid SACD's of Steely Dan's first 7 albums ("Can't Buy a Thrill ' - "Gaucho"), I decided to come up with a playlist of the 20 most "sonically interesting" Steely Dan songs. The only rule was "Aja" is excluded. I won't bore anyone with the whole list; but, I've listed one track from each of those albums that made my list:
1) Change of The Guard; 2) Razor Boy; 3) Night By Night; 4) Daddy Don't Live in That New York City No More 5) Sign in Stranger 6) Home at Last 7) Babylon Sisters.
It was a fun and interesting challenge for me; and, I'd recommend any serious Steely Dan fan to give it a shot.
