Steely Dan's Royal Scam
Posted:Thursday, 12/06/2012 at 03:12am by Greg Easterling
Tuesday am, we spotlighted Steely Dan and their fifth album, The Royal Scam, released in 1976. Their biggest success was still to come with Aja but albums like this one paved the way for Steely Dan's core duo of Donald Fagen and Walter Becker to develop their unique hipster blend of rock and classic jazz. By this point, Steely Dan was more of a musical project than an actual band that toured as Becker and Fagen called on a number of talented session musicians and jazz players to help bring their musical visions to life. We listened to Side 2 which included the title track and "Golden Earrings".
