live stuff: stealing dan & don at the bull's head, 7/3/06

In their blurb Stealing Dan & Don, playing their monthly residency tonight at the Bull's Head, are described as "London's only Steely Dan tribute band". Presumably Nearly Dan, who I've seen previously at the Jazz Cafe, are from out of town. Very tight, very proficient, as they'd need to be to do justice to the music. Covering the usual favourites from the 70s albums, as well as quite a few from the first Fagen solo records, they also serve up jazz versions of "Deacon Blue" and "Do It Again". Personally, I'd prefer if they stuck to the original arrangements. They can play though...
