Book Description

Written in 1985 and never before released in book form, Do It Again: The Steely Dan Years recounts the story of one of the best—and most fascinating—rock ‘n’ roll bands in pop history. Extending back to their days as touring members of Jay & The Americans, Do It Again details all the glorious minutiae that would compel band members Donald Fagen and Walter Becker to meet, write songs, attempt to write a musical, and—eventually—form a pioneering rock ‘n’ roll band that would take its name from a sex toy featured in William Burroughs’ classic novel Naked Lunch.

Featuring direct interviews with many essential players in the Steely Dan saga—including group members Denny Dias, Jeff Baxter, the late Jim Hodder, producer Gary Katz, and a host of others who were there from the beginning—Do It Again examines the band’s rise to fame, and the impact that fame had upon each band member.

Featuring a full appendix detailing the band’s complete discography and featured sessions through the release of Donald Fagen’s first solo album The Nightfly, Do It Again: The Steely Dan Years is a compelling retelling of the Steely Dan story—personality-filled, quirky, mysterious and, like the band itself, kind of odd.

Surface treatment of the men behind Steely Dan. Lots of third party perspectives and little insight into what really makes the founders of Steely Dan tick or their roots..

I am a huge, huge Steely Dan fan, so this book would have to really suck for me not to like it. It did not suck and I did like it!
