RIP Walter Becker

I always liked Steely Dan records, as far back as the Dead.  They rarely played live, but I like this little set from March 1974 in Los Angeles.  Give it a listen here

RIP Walter

If memory serves, at one of the Academy of Music shows from immediately before Europe 72, someone in the crowd shouts out Steely Dan, and I think Bob responds questioningly. Maybe 3/26? I'd have to relisten.
