Yeah, Alive in America. That's a great disc. I have a couple of bootlegs from their 1993 and 1994 tours. Un-fucking-believable.

I recently secured the special edition Gold CD for Kamakiriad. Much better sonics although the regular CD is very nice.

Is that from the Nightly Trilogy collection? Or was this a separate release? My favorite song off of Kamakiriad (and really one of my favorite songs, period) is Teahouse on the Tracks.

Florida Room is my fave. The lyrics correspond to some of my Florida experiences.

The gold version was a separate early release from around 1992 or so.

Yeah, that's a really great song. The part when Donald's voice arches over..."Walk a tropical miiiiiiile" always gives me goosebumps. He has a knack for writing music that really puts you in the right location. Snowbound is the same way...I was listening to it today (we got snowed/iced in this morning) and it just seemed so right.

The Nightfly is kickimng ass tonight IMO. How great is "Maxine"? and "Green Flower Street" is a stroke of genikus. Wish I saw SD on their summer tour this year... they did "New Frontier"!!!!!

Nothing beats Kamakiriad's "Teahouse on the Tracks." Possibly the hardest-grooving song ever. Features my fave lyrics. The siegel bros. were slammin out a baion So slick it should have been a crime Irene and flocko and little amy khan Lead off the big front line The crowd was bouncin in sync with the pulse You get a case of party feet (then the room turns bright And fills up with light) And then from somewhere deep inside you Some frozen stuff begins to crack Better hurry Take the t-line to bleak and divine Just above the good time flats Its your last chance To learn how to dance At the teahouse on the tracks

Steely Dan = a bunch of melodic geniuses that I would gladly push into a vat of acid.
