Steely Dan: Rainbow Theatre Finsbury Park, London, England - May 20, 1974 - 2CD set
Date: May 20, 1974
Venue: Rainbow Theatre Finsbury Park
Quality - A Soundboard recording
With just two albums to their name, Steely Dan arrived in London to promote their third, Pretzel Logic.
The Dan are with the classic lineup of Jeff Baxter, Denny Dias, Jim Hodder and even Michael McDonald on piano. The melodic songs from Can’t Buy A Thrill and Countdown To Ecstasy are played for all their worth. It’s unknown why this show in London was recorded. This source is from a tape of the soundboard recording. It shows its age, the drums are poorly miked, but thankfully Donald Fagen’s voice is nicely centered and you can hear all the guitars and keyboard parts.
Taking the opening bars from Horace Silver’s Song For My Father, Becker and Fagen create the fantastic pop hit Rikki Don’t Lose That Number. Silver was not amused and demanded they remove it. None of the current CD releases with this song retains that special piano intro. Luckily it survives on this live recording. The Dan have never released a live recording from this era. And despite about 56 seconds missing from My Old School (tape flip?), the Dan are in fine form this show. A MUST for the Steely Dan diehard
