The third Steely Dan album,"Pretzel Logic" in February 1974, has always served as a distinct demarcation line in the evolution of the eclectic band led by my guests, songwriting duo Donald Fagen and Walter Becker. "Pretzel Logic" by Steely Dan is significant because it contained the #4 Billboard hit, "Rikki Don't Lose That Number", with the album Top Ten in sales as well. Rolling Stone magazine ranks "Pretzel Logic" at #386 on their Top 500 Albums of All Time.
