40 Year Itch : Gatherin' Up The Tears

On April 13, 1973 Steely Dan performed their #11 US hit " Reelin In The Year"on the Midnight Special, hosted by Bill Cosby. The dual guitar solos by Denny Dias ( in purple pants) and Jeff "Skunk" Baxter is really quite extraordinary. Singer David Palmer was on his way out as Donald Fagen developed his vocal prowess ( and hopefully lost the 'flicking of his head after every line" tic).

 Fanny, Waylon Jennings and Billy Preston also performed that night.
