Dukes of September

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83IX8iKd_28

With Donald Fagen, Mike McDonald and Boz Scaggs
While a big fan of Steely Dan, but not ever seeing them live, I figured I was at least following their careers with tours and projects. Guess Not. I had never heard of this tour until this DVD release.

Iím torn going into this. Iím uber excited to hear any Steely Dan material. And on the opposite end, I detest Mike McDonald. I donít like his music. I donít like his voice. Boz Scaggs had less than a handful of hits and they are included here. So about a 3rd of the songs are throwawayís to me. Iíve never heard them and none caught my interest.

The band is tight. Jon Herington (guitar) does an amazing job covering all styles of music. His covering Steely Dan leads is top notch. As is Michael White percussion. In fact, I think he upgrades some of the songs quite nicely. The rest of the band and singers excel as well. The audio captures everything in a full and balanced level. Crank this mutha up

The video is pristine. Nice slow camera movements. The editing could have been better. At times a little too much quick change.

I think the performance was a little too chaotic. Jumping from the 3 artists material really didnít have cohesion.

In the end, Iím glad I got to see it, but have no desire to own to watch over.

I don't know what it is, but I ALWAYS get a kick out of you slamming MD. I love it. It has been going on for as long as I've known you and this was at the start of that OTHER site. Seriously, the day you start liking MD is the day I will truly be sad. You ROCK Mac!! I think I'm gonna go pop in an 8 Track of the Doobie Brothers......just for you.  ;D

The 40 Year Old Virgin - Michael McDonald Scene

Whenever you bash MD, I immediately think of this scene in particular.
