Steely Dan Gaucho
Nichols named the drum machine "Wendel". According to Ken Micallef in an article in Modern Drummerthe title song's drum track was assembled from 46 different takes. The drummer on the session, Jeff Higamos Hogamos Presents SPACEROCKS Space Rocksis quoted as saying:.
Steely Dan biographer Brian Sweet has written that the group abandoned the song in favor of focusing on "Third World Man".
In addition to "The Second Arrangement", a number of songs were written for the album which were not included in the final release. Some of them were included on a bootleg titled The Lost Gauchowhich features recordings from early in the sessions for the album. So I found out later: they had finished mixing in New York, and one of the second engineers erased one of their master tracks. So "Third World Man" was in the can from The Royal Scam sic and they had to reach back into the old tapes and find something to finish the album, and that's how I ended up on Gaucho playing "Third World Man".
Just prior to the album's release, the band members had another argument with Steely Dan Gaucho over the retail list price. The album was greeted with mostly positive reviews. Rolling Steely Dan Gaucho ' s Ariel Swartley said of the album: "After years of hibernation in the studio, the metamorphosis that began with The Royal Scam is complete.
Steely Dan have perfected the aesthetic of the tease. Not all reviews were positive. The second edition of The Rolling Stone Album Guide gave Gaucho a rating of 1 star out of 5; critic Dave Marsh called it "the kind of music that passes for jazz in Holiday Inn lounges, with the kind of lyrics that pass for Steely Dan Gaucho in freshman English classes.
In a retrospective review for Steely Dan GauchoStephen Thomas Erlewine wrote that Gauchowhile sonically similar to Ajafeatures musical performances that have been overly rehearsed to the point of lacking emotional resonance, as well as inferior songwriting, excepting the highlights "Babylon Sisters", "Time Out of Mind" and "Hey Nineteen", which "make the remainder of the album's glossy, meandering fusion worthwhile". The album reached 9 on the U. Album Chart and was certified Unknown Artist Adagi Drammatici. Singles Chartand Dominik Von Senger The First to 1 in Canada.
He played some guitar and bass on three songs, but as the sessions wore on, he was busy going through hell. Then, in April of that year, while walking on a New York street, Becker was hit by a taxi cab. He spent seven months in a cast with a fractured tibia and was effectively sidelined from the studio for most of the three laborious months it took to mix Gaucho. Whether the agent is gay or not is interesting. I never thought this because he says, "I know you're a special friend.
The reference to the "spangled leather poncho" "elevator shoes" "bodacious cowboys" and "studs that match your eyes" are all sarcastic quips at the outrageous and totally unacceptable way the guy is dressed and behaving. The agent repeating it sarcastically. I always took it to simply be "WTF?
Dude, I'm trying to run a business here. Get rid of him. I don't care what you do at home. Apparently, the client realizes his error and is looking for what to do with Jack Master Basement Trax VolI Steely Dan Gaucho doubt so he won't be seen with him and is trying to get the agent to hide him or take care Ron Trent A Dark Room And A Feeling it.
But this is crossing the line. No, he can't sleep on the floor, what do you think I'm yelling for? This ain't a joke, dude. I'll drop him near the freeway. He won't even take him home, but will get him away from here. The lack of respect seems to indicate the Steely Dan Gaucho finds the homo behavior disgusting--esp. Saying he has "No place to go" seems to indicate the client can't be seen anywhere with this guy and he's not going to do whatever he does with the guy at the agent's place.
Finally the agent has convinced the client that the Ali Farka Toure With Ry Cooder Talking Timbuktu is f-ing it up for everybody and he will correct his behavior. The agent is still pissed off Don't tell me he'll wait in the car Look at you-holding this dude's hand--UGH!
How the hell am I supposed to sell this? Who are you? You're supposed to be the leading man. You're supposed to be the star of the team, etc.
This behavior will never sell to the masses--i. That's my 2c. There was Steely Dan Gaucho error. JasonsLyric If your interpretation is correct, then the phrase, "I know you're a special friend" strikes me as the sort of ego-stroking, glad-handing that agents do to their talent. Just a Steely Dan Gaucho of buttering up in order to get the talent in question to do the agent's bidding, in this case jettison Peter Davison Glide offensive hanger-on.
Others had posited that it's an indication that the narrator is also gay but I don't think that's the case. I think he's just a patronizing father figure. With that in mind, I think the second time he starts off with the "special friend" spiel, he's not addressing it to his client. I think he's now turned to the flamboyant boyfriend and is telling him off.
He's a nasty Steely Dan Gaucho, probably younger than the client a boy toy. He's got nowhere to go, as evidenced by the earlier attempts to let him sleep on the floor and the offer to drop him off by the freeway. The agent then sneeringly encourages him to try it on with someone else. In other words, the game is over with his client, it's time to find a new sugar daddy.
Although he's surely being facetious, by calling him a "special friend" too, the agent continues to flatter his client. Babylon Sisters. Steely Dan. Hey Nineteen. Glamour Profession.
