Steely Dan is an American jazz rock band formed in 1972. I think in New York. Also, I didn't know that jazz part but after just finishing the album at number 386, it makes sense.
Pretzel Logic (ABC, 1974) is the third studio album by Steely Dan and was a commercial and critical success at its release. Maybe you've heard Rikki Don't Lose That Number. Maybe? Please say you have! Anyway, it got lots of radio play and is possibly the best thing about the album. At least my ears think it was the best thing about the album. The album charted at number 8 on the Billboard 200 and was gold certified, and by 1993, the album was platinum certified.
I will probably never listen to it again. But Rikki, don't lose that number! You don't wanna call nobody else. Send it off in a letter to yourself.
