In 1973 when the songs below came out and I was a 10 years old, I asked for this record for a birthday or Christmas. My great grandmother, who we actually called Granny, went to the store to buy it and changed her mind. She told my mother that the album cover contained pornography. When I heard that I wasn't getting that record and nobody would tell me what pornography was, I really wanted to have that record even more. I collected enough pop bottles to trade in to buy that record, and became addicted to this obscure form of pornography known as Steely Dan. These songs are are just two of my favorites from the record. In fact I love them all and as a kid I could scat every riff of every song, and still can. The entire record went a long way toward shaping my love for music.
