Funky Friday - Steely Dan Edition

Yesterday was my 15th wedding anniversary. As a present to ourselves my wife and I are going to Chicago for the weekend. Tomorrow night is dinner @ Blackbird. There is a Calder exhibit to see. There are a couple of Rick Bayless restaurants to consider. And to top it all off, on Monday night we are seeing Steely Dan live at the Chicago Theater. They are playing "Aja" in it's entirety, followed by a set of greatest hits. To say I'm psyched is to put it mildly. It is one of the first albums I bought with my own $ back in the day - Herbergers in Rice lake WI, yo! I love it dearly and can't wait to hear it played out. A kid free (I'll miss 'em a bit...) weekend in the big city doing grown up stuff? Priceless.

Steely Dan - Kid Charlemagne
Steely Dan - Babylon Sisters
Steely Dan - I Got The News
Steely Dan - The Fez
DJ Ransom - Peg (Edit)

So I'm thinking that these guys are so dated.....I mean I dug 'em, but it is so late 70s.....Then I listen to kid charlemagne and it is still, still, still spectacular. Enjoy.
