Reelin' In The Years is the acclaimed biography of Steely Dan, now updated to include details of Walter Becker and Donald Fagen's work during the Nineties and beyond, including the latest Steely Dan masterpiece 'Everything Must Go'.

The only book ever to have been published on Steely Dan, it tells the strange tale of how Becker and Fagen, a couple of cynical New York jazz fans, wormed their way into a record contract and astonished critics with their superb debut, Can't Buy A Thrill in 1973. Seven albums later, after Aja had topped charts everywhere, they are among the biggest selling acts in the world. Then they quit, only to reform in 1993 more popular than ever.

But Steely Dan were different from the rest of rock's super-sellers. They rarely gave interviews. After some early bad experiences on the road, they refused to tour. They didn't have their photographs taken. Few people even knew what they looked like. Steely Dan weren't even a proper group; it was two musicians and their producer, yet every top notch player in the world lined up to appear on their albums. They were perfectionists. They were enigmatic. They were very rich. Their music was the coolest around.

In Reelin' In The Years, Brian Sweet, editor and publisher of Metal Leg, the UK based Steely Dan fanzine, draws back the veil of secrecy that has surrounded Becker and Fagen. Here at last is the true story of how they made their music and lived their lives.


This is an updated edition of the bestselling biography that draws back the veil of secrecy that has surrounded Walter Becker and Donald Fagen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Best Dan biography out there 10. Juni 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Brian Sweet isn't the best stylist on the planet, but with this biography he provides the best available overview of Steely Dan's career and a lot of inside information you probably won't have read anywhere else before. Well done!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Through With Buzz? 10. November 2008
Von Karl J. Hanson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
If you're looking for information about Steely Dan, we can assume that you're either (1) a Baby Boomer or (2) a musically inclined teenager/twenty-something who is doing serious research about 1970's music. As a member of the "Boomers", Steelye Dan's music became hard-wired into my brain as a result of listening to their LP's for countless hours. Sweet's book is just about the only resource out there about this great group. Buy it.

Walter Becker and Donald Fagen are pranksters who rarely gave interviews. When they did talk, they liked telling fibs, intentionally to mislead the interviewer. These guys are two slippery dudes to write about.

I think that Brian Sweet did a great job referencing this book. Even though Sweet wasn't able to interview Becker and Fagen, he interviewed a whole lot of people who have known them and have worked with them. He has compiled information from many articles. And what if Sweet had obtained an interview with B&F? No doubt they would have fed Sweet a scam of lies, laughing "sucker!" behind his back. It was probably best to write about B&F as though they're dead, just to keep the facts straight.

The only critism I have of Sweet's book is extremely minor: He says that the song "Through With Buzz" on "Pretzel Logic" was Steely Dan's worst. Give me a break! That was a very cool song, a lot like the Electric Light Orchestra's stuff. Somebody has to defend this song!

Pretty interesting book. Good book for Dan fans. Goes over every album, track for track with quotes from Becker and Fagen as well as Katz and other band members from the past and present. I was glad I read it.

Book is interesting for Dan fanatics, but a bit esoteric unless you're a very experienced musician. Too much musical jargon without any translation for the common man.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Steely Dan: Reelin In The Years 19. Mai 2009
Von R. W. Powell - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Not enough recording details for me. Several pages on the 1968-1972 period, but not enough detail to put the Becker-Fagen "demos" into chronological order. The index section is useless, as virtually none of the listed topics can be found on the pages specified. About  of the way into the book I started wondering if there is a better Steely Dan book out there.
