    WOW McDonald & Giles! I practically wore that record out! Love the early King Crimson stuff. Ever hear “Lizard?” Highly recommended.

    I was always amazed at how perfect that one note solo is. Brilliant.

    I prefer Cities on Flame With Rock and Roll. Much more daring. And better lyrics! "Marshall will buoy but Fender control."

    Bet me to it! I agree it's one that I listened to repeatedly.

    Oh I have the CD. That is why I don't need radio. I am a collector. :)

    But I don't <i>think</i> it was a single take. There's a documentary on the making of that album where Fagen and Becker talk about all the many passes they'd have someone play and then edit to something they liked.

    What I heard is, they tried a bunch of different guitarists (all great, of course), but none of them could get the “just right” solo Fagen and Becker were looking for. Finally, Jay Graydon came in and just nailed it on the first take.

    Ah, that explains my initial take on the various guitar work, they just beat the life out of it in production.

    You think that solo is lifeless?

    Yeah kinda, but excellent phrasing, notes etc. I like solos that sound like they are ready to go off the rails at any instant , like Otis Rush , Page, Beck, Hendrix or Clapton's live Spoonfull , Fripp, Mahavishnu etc.

    Years ago I was taking guitarists w a friend ; how I really liked Claptons emotional content, and found Page devoid of any emotion , but I really got off on his great raw energy. For him, he found Page was very expressive but Clapton was just mechanical, but dug his high energy.

    Steely Dan didn t use anyone but grade A, A+ guitarists but some of the work, tho I realize is good , just doesn t do anything to me the way a high energy solo does.
    Music is close to 100% subjective even in terms of how you evaluate the elements let alone the whole.

    OK I see what you’re saying. John McLaughlin played like that when he was with Miles. Although I have a ton of his albums and still love his playing, it’s missing that crazy energy he had with Miles. Miles was known for bringing out the best in any musician who played with him.

    According to her she only looks like a little Jewish girl from New Jersey. She's really Emily Remler. Actually she said she was really a 50 year old heavy set black man with a big thumb. Here's a guitar solo I hope to always remember.

    She was my age, so I found her very interesting.
    It was heartbreaking when she passed.
    I always thought she was from New Orleans.
    RIP, ma’am.
