Fantastic sounding and pressing, although in my case a record cleaning (seemingly never ending in this "new" era of vinyl pressings) is in order. I agree with everything said already here...but what gives with the paper sleeves housing each vinyl ? Do we not understand anti static sleeves are needed, especially at vinyl this price point? And of course,my pre-order fromthe SD website arrived with both inner sleeves being split with the records shifting during shipping. Also, one of the worst Jacket/Inner Jacket designs yet in a Steely Dan labeled release. Fagen has remarked how legal wouldn't allow a Fagen release much like touring...the SD name just does better business. I wonder how true that is...considering the amount of other successful artists who proved this wrong. Still, soild music and pressing, and that's what counts.

Warm, Full and flatly pressed album with little to no surface noise. Another one for the fans with great mastering from Bernie Grundman.

Often times I wonder how many members may leave a band and still have the moniker remain. In this case, the only original member is Donald Fagen.

Let’s begin with the facts, for all intent and purposes, this should be considered another Donal Fagen album, as all of the songs have been romantically smoothed out to his wasted jazz perfections. That said, all of the material is nicely done, scripted a bit differently, but that’s a welcome change after hearing some of these tracks for nearly fifty years now. And finally, someone has gotten around to miking out an overly enthusiastic audience, meaning the songs on this, the finest live Steely Dan album, just flow with that live stage presence, captured at peak form. The album was recorded at several venues (the Met Philadelphia: Tacks 2 & 6, The Beacon Theater: Tracks 7 & 10, Mohegan Sun Arena: Tracks 1, 3, 5 & 11 and the Orpheum Theatre: Tracks 2. 8, 9 & 12), nevertheless, it offers up tight genuine editions by a midsized jazz band that does know how to rock n’ roll.

This is one of those tasty cases that requires a double album, as each number pushes the five minute mark, so if you prefer the vinyl, you’re not jumping up every couple of short numbers to flip these heavy pieces of wax that are housed in a flimsy jacket rather than a gatefold, which would feature images and insights that are inherently missing here. So yes, it’s one of those releases that requires a dedicated listen if vinyl is your choice, though the CD seems to work best for my demented hour long listening pleasure.

Certainly there are songs missing that one would wish were included, but hey, that’s what a live adventure is all about, and this one is top-shelf first rate.

As to the lineup, you’re in for an almost scandalous splendid listen, as it should come as no surprise that people who are so finicky about their studio sound would do anything less when it comes to reproducing these numbers on stage: Donald Fagen: lead vocals, piano, melodica, Freddie Washington: bass, Keith Carlock: drums, Connor Kennedy: guitar, Jon Herington: guitar, Jim Beard: piano, keyboards, Roger Rosenberg: baritone saxophone, bass clarinet, Ari Ambrose: tenor saxophone, alto saxophone, Walt Weiskopf: tenor saxophone, alto saxophone, Jim Pugh: trombone, Michael Leonhart: trumpet, flugelhorn, percussion, Carolyn Leonhart, Catherine Russell, Jamie Leonhart, La Tanya Hall: vocals, percussion.

Still, when all is said and done, as grand as this outing is, it’s not a Steely Dan release by any stretch of the imagination …

First live Steely Dan album since 1995 and this one does not disappoint! Another high quality Steely Dan recording that plays and sounds terrific. It started off a bit rocky with “Black Cow” where Fagen’s voice sounds a bit frail and weak. Thankfully his voice gets better after that and considering he’s in his 70’s, he’s doing great. The background singers seem to take more of a prominent role to help out with the vocals as well.

These oldies from the 60’s, 70’s, & 80’s like Donald Fagen aren’t getting any younger. Enjoy all of them while you can, once they can no longer perform or they’re gone, all we’ll have left are these great recordings from legendary musicians where music was actually music.
