The lovely and always amazing Brigid seems to be going through an 80's flashback.
So I will play. It has been said that the Eagles chronicled life in California in the 70's. Steely Dan picked up doing it for the early eighties.
So although I love the Eagles, I tend to gravitate to the technical precision of two people that hired studio musicians for everything else. Much like The Alan Parsons Project. I know. I dated a piano player hired for "The Turn of a Friendly Card" album. She was amazing. Made me walk in the rain with her. It was never to be, but those were times I fondly remember.
Here is Steely Dan with one of my favorites from them.
