• The Second Arrangement

    6,907 views 3 years ago
    My sister and I are huge Steely Dan fans, so for her birthday I recorded that long lost Becker and Fagen classic : The Second Arrangement. It took a few hours to figure out the chords from the demo I heard but I think I got pretty close. It would be great if B&F actually went in and re-recorded this gem but I guess the Beacon performance of 2011 might be as close as we get.
    The performers on this recording are :
    John Tabacco : Lead vocal, bass, acoustic, keys, programming
    Susan DeVita : backup vocals
    Anthony Pomes: Electric Guitar
    Recorded at Suburban Hermit Studio2, Stony Brook NY
