Steely Dan- Pretzel Logic 50th- Donald Fagen, Walter Becker 2-19

The third Steely Dan album, released in February 1974 as Pretzel Logic, has always served as a distinct demarcation line in the evolution of the eclectic band led by 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.

Donald Fagen and the late Walter Becker of Steely Dan are my guests for Pretzel Logic‘s golden anniversary the week of February 19. -Redbeard
