  1. I saw the cover photo of Becker & Fagen and knew I had to listen to this one. These are some great, very diverse picks from 1972! I am a huge Steely Dan fan – It’s true that some people can’t stand them, but I think critics tend to acknowledge their musical talent and production perfectionism. I like “Reelin’ in the Years,” but it’s a bit overplayed for me. From this album, I’d have to go with “Dirty Work” or “Brooklyn.” Also, I couldn’t let a conversation of 1972 go without discussing The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. If I had to pick one tune, “Lady Stardust” is the one for me.

    I love this series!
