Steely Dan – Do It Again (1972)

Listening to the Danny Baker Show this morning, he repeated once again his assertion that Steely Dan are the second greatest band in history  (only The Beatles he rates ahead of them).

Not sure I could personally sign up to this conclusion but, deciding to have a bit of a Steely Dan afternoon, one does have to acknowledge that they’ve made some superb records.

And none is finer than the first track on their debut LP Can’t Buy A Thrill.

“Do It Again” is just a perfect record; Latin-esque percussion, killer keyboards, great lyrics and possibly the finest electric sitar solo in the history of  recorded music (hats off to Denny Dias).

The LP version and the a fantastic performance live on The Midnight Special in 1972.
