Steely Dan – Ellis Auditorium Memphis April 30th 1974 (CD)

Ellis Auditorium Memphis April 30th 1974 (CD)

Recorded by the band’s definitive line-up during the legendary Pretzel Logic tour, this awesome live set finds Messrs. Fagen & Becker leading their outstanding musicians (including 20 year-old drummer Jeff Porcaro) through several of their best-loved compositions, as well as a couple of rarities. Recorded for FM radio broadcast, it’s presented here in superb fidelity, with revealing background notes and images, and stands as a remarkable record of a unique band shortly before they abandoned touring.
