Steely Dan roxxored as usual! I was pleased!

The Set List - Steely Dan in Chicago 06-27-07

"Time Out of Mind"
"God Whacker"
"Bad Sneakers"
"Two Against Nature"
"Hey Nineteen"
"Haitian Divorce" (lead vocals - Walter Becker)
"Babylon Sisters"

"Dirty Work" (lead vocals - Carolyn Leonhart-Escoffery and Cindy Mizelle)
"Chain Lightning"
ENCORE - "Pretzel Logic" (harmonica - Howard Levy)
ENCORE - "Kid Charlemagne"

Nope, they didn't play "Deacon Blues" as usual. Yup, that was a disappointment, as usual. Yup, I heard other people bitching about that on the way out, as usual.

The drummer, Keith Carlock, was a complete f***ing maniac! I loved him! For some reason when I listen to "Aja" through my headphones, I don't notice how incredibly f***ing heavy the drums are. [Not that I expect he was the original drummer]

I am totally, completely, utterly envious of the "backing vocals" singers Cindy Mizelle and Carolyn Leonhart-Escoffery. If I could have any job in the entire universe, I'd have theirs! Totally! The Dan are touring all over the US followed by Europe, Japan, and Australia / New Zealand. I could hardly have any complaints if I could live one of their lives!

After all, literally every song was carried by them, and it's almost not fair to call them "backing" vocalists. I love Donald Fagen's voice, but during this concert his vocals sometimes seemed like an afterthought. Then again, I can't sing like freakin' Jennifer Hudson like they do, so I don't think I would qualify for that job anytime soon.

That's all I have to say about that!
