Excellent doctor's waiting room music. Makes the actual exam pleasant by comparison.
But who is "sweating" this, and in what way?
But who is "sweating" this, and in what way? Not as a collector's piece, so much as an influential album. Off the top of the head, i think Tim Maia included it in his list in a recent issue of wax poetics.
Morph The Cat
Peg "When I opened up the hihat just a little bit I'd never heard that kind of thing on a record before.."OH JESUS FUCKING CHRIST SHUT UP YOU BORING STUDIO MUSICIAN DOUCHEBAG!!!AND YES PHILL I'M 36 I HEARD AJA WHEN IT CAME OUT - I REMEMBER IT WELL - IT WAS AN ADULT CONTEMPORARY RADIO AND DOCTORS WAITING ROOM STAPLE JUST LIKE BARRY MANILOW AND WAS ABOUT AS NEXT LEVEL AS PONG. THERE'S A REASON PUNK WAS INVENTED AND STEELY DAN WAS IT.
It's not even a dollar album.
It's not even a dollar album. I'd say its exactly a $1 record, and I'd drop $2 on the red vinyl shit.
I just check the Steely Dan threads to watch Marco go off."is that... "Hey Nineteen?"
Does it get the SS stamp of approval? So many people sweat it, especially producers. Don't get me wrong, it's by no means a bad album, I just don't see it...:wd
ClassicTimeless Are any of yall old enough to actually remember "Peg" when it came out? I am. That schitt was like back then. BIG f**kin' record all up in the hood. RIDICULOUS. I couldn't believe it when De La sampled that schitt a decade later. I didn't fully appreciate the whole album probably until the late 80's or early 90's, but no doubt that's a classic. Would yall Steely Dan fans consider that to be their best album?Don't sleep on that recent Donald Fagen album too (Morph The Cat), as endorsed awhile back by my brutha from anutha mutha Big Stacks and other esteemed Strutters with good taste.
Im sorry... Studio doods fucking noodling thier asses off, coked out doing 100 takes to the cleanest system in the world is just not my shit, nor will it ever be. I hate clean rap, I hate clean punk, but I extra 'specially hate clean doctors offices.
