Steely Dan: The Royal Scam (Anchor ABCL5161)

Rosalind Russell, Record Mirror, 29 May 1976

STEELY DAN have made it in the way Poco should have done. After all, their music is similar. 'Don't Take Me Alive' is one of the best tracks, on a par with the material from Pretzel Logic which I think was their peak.

Total word count of piece: 126
