I know there's another Dan thread on here but I thought this was sufficiently different to warrant its own thread.
My friend wants me to make him a compilation CD as an intro to Steely Dan after I dragged him to watch Nearly Dan and he enjoyed it. I did spend about an hour working out an 80-minute tracklisting but thinking about it, 12 tracks is a better, more digestible, length for an introduction.
So... what do I put on it? I only have Pretzel Logic - Aja i.e. albums 2 to 6. Or should KI just copy him The Royal Scam instead?
