I know people who love the Eagles and I know people who love Steely Dan and they’re not the same people. Maybe it’s the way the bands were marketed. Steely Dan: peddling Beat prose, poetry and soft porn. Eagles: electric urban cowboys in designer jeans. East Coast intellectualism versus West Coast wisdom. But the difference between their music is marginal. Take “New Kid In Town” for example: a meticulous, self-contained story that deals with the transitory nature of being at the top. Strip away some of Dan’s veneer, and you could be listening to “Razor Boy” or “Haitian Divorce.” Just a personal observation, mind you, and not the sort of thing meant to rankle Steely Dan fans. Note that the single version runs fifteen seconds shorter than the 5:04 elpee version; just enough time to squeeze in one more radio commercial.
