I am surprised to see Reeling in the Years in the set list. They've not done it in any concert I've seen.
Ziff, if your memory is clear :-), can you expound a bit more on the concert? Or, maybe just comment whether you agree with this review that I also found with respect to the July 23 concert:
"A new star entered the firmament of drum-lore tonight at Pacific Amphitheatre in Costa Mesa, California: Keith Carlock. Mark it in your calendars loyal Dan folk, he da shit and everybody smelt it. More on him later.
Here we go:
1) some jazz classic no doubt that only the real aficionados will know; sounded like Ellington to me. No D & W, just the band.
2) on our boys come and BANG --- AJA
3) Time Out of Mind (I was out of my head by now)
4) Godwhacker DF messed up some lyrics: rip & chop & slice became rip & slice & chop
5) Caves of Altamira
6) The Last Mall DF wails on "roll your cart..."
7) Do It Again - could have sworn there were hints of Rikki in the intro
8) Slang of Ages yes, Walt did it beautifully with the girls, then the band intros all behind slices and snatches of Wilson Pickett's "Midnight Hour"
9) PEG - the interplay between Barney and Carlock was spot-on, they really communicate with each other especially when Carlock goes to the bell on the ride symbol and Barney does that "Sanford & Son" pluck and snap--yeow
10) Reeling in the Years Donald doing a "recitative" quick-time reading, the girls were a little flat --it's basically the 1993 Alive version
11) The Steely Dan Show that little snippet of a tribute to their own selves concocted on the European leg of Y2K
12) Janie Runaway by now DF was loosened up, great rendition and together with the next song comprised the "Jailbait Medley" as Donald chortled
13) Hey 19 - nice stripped down version where he never sings, "hey 19" - the audience did it for him
14) wait for it........HAITIAN DIVORCE BY WALTER! F**kin great, he pulled it off wow tremendous effects by Herrington and together with the next tune comprised the "Divorce Medley"
15) Things I Miss The Most Donald's all over this one, the lyric really is cunning and fun.
16) The girls render PARKER'S BAND great groove and they sway soo good.
17) A JOSIE that BELONGED to Carlock. His two solos brought the crowd to their FEET, he's hitting rim shots and double clanging the cymbals throughout a blistering solo wherein he changes time so seamlessly when he goes into overdrive.
18) Kid Charlemagne
19) Don't Take Me Alive
20) FM with special guest Dean Parks from L.A."
