Album of the Day

Donald Fagan: The Nightfly. After the break-up of Steely Dan in the late 70s, Donald Fagan went on to produce this gem of a solo album. As you might expect, it shares a lot of musical DNA with the Dan. It's almost a concept album (so the liner notes say), dealing with growing up in the 50s and 60s - hence songs about the International Geophysical Year ("I.G.Y.") and parties in bomb shelters ("New Frontier"). Oh, and the B3 in "Walk Between the Raindrops" is too sweet for words.
