Steely Dan Information Continued
Steely Dan's debut album, Can't Buy A Thrill, was released in 1972 and made an immediate impression with the hit singles "Do It Again", "Dirty Work" (later covered by Max Merritt) and "Reelin' In The Years", all of which soon became staples of FM radio. Steely Dan returned to prominence with their classic third album, Pretzel Logic, in early 1974, a diverse but superbly realised set that produced another huge hit single, "Rikki Don't Lose That Number", a US Top Ten hit which became yet another enduring FM rock radio staple.
In 2000, Steely Dan released their first studio album in twenty years, Two Against Nature. It was not only a brilliant return to form but proved to be one of the surprise successes of the year and in February 2001 it earned them four Grammy Awards. They won in the categories for Best Engineered Album - Non-Classical, Best Pop Vocal Album, Best Pop Performance by Duo or Group with Vocal ("Cousin Dupree") and Album of the Year. Their win for Album of the Year came as a shock as they defeated Eminem and his highly controversial album The Marshall Mathers LP. In March 2001, the original members reunited on stage for the first time in decades when Steely Dan was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Steely Dan will embark on a 32-date tour in the summer of 2006, partially in support of Fagen's first solo album in 13 years, Morph the Cat. Also featured on the bill is former collaborator Michael McDonald and his band.
