Формируйте собственную коллекцию записей Steely is track Nr. 9 on the fith album The Royal Scam by Steely Dan 1976. The Royal Scam is the first Steely Dan record that doesn't exhibit significant musical progress from its predecessor, but that doesn't mean the album is any less interesting. The cynicism that was suppressed on Katy Lied comes roaring to the surface on The Royal Scam - not only are the lyrics bitter and snide, but the music is terse, broken, and weary. Not so coincidentally, the album is comprised of Walter Becker and Donald Fagen's weakest set of songs since Can't Buy a Thrill. Although Scam was Steely Dans slickest album to date, it was also, in some ways, their ugliest. Its arrangements are a jungle of Rhodes stabs and the most aggressive-and finest-guitar work on a Steely Dan album since 1973s Countdown to Ecstasy. On Dont Take Me Alive, Larry Carlton seems to take up most of the space, snarling, feeding back, advancing the simmering tension at the songs stakeout in a 1979 radio interview, Gary Katz said theyd directed the guitarist to play as nasty and loud as possible.

Ever the primary conceit of mainstays Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, 1976's The Royal Scam marks the first time the Steely Dan duo actually owned up to the fact. Musically, it's their edgiest, most guitar-driven record thanks to Becker and a murderer's row of session greats that includes Larry Carlton, Elliot Randall, Dean Parks, and Denny Dias. How Steely Dan Pulled Off The Royal Scam. Frank Mastropolo. ABC Records. Expectations were high when Steely Dan 's fifth album was released May 31, 1976. The Royal Scam featured the band's most cynical lyrics to date in its tales of outlaws, drug dealers and cheaters. While the LP reached No. 15 on the Billboard albums chart, its two singles, Kid Charlemagne and The Fez, barely made a dent. Critical response was a mix of raves and disappointment
