43. Steely Dan - Reelin' In the Years

Found on: Can't Buy a Thrill (1972)
Picked by: WA, RN

Save the crisp production and instrumentation, Reelin' In the Years is not terribly representative of Chevy Chase's old band. They definitely got more obtuse and jazzy as they progressed, so this one stands as one of their few genuine rock numbers. Dig that solo!

Agreed. Finest guitar solo in rock history.


Not just insanely brilliant musicians, but these are songs whose dynamics, moods and lyrics can match any group's best work. Epic!~E
