Steely Dan - Classic Live Radio Broadcast (1974)
This 1974 Steely Dan set was recorded live in front of a small studio audience at Los Angeles' famed Record Plant Studios. It was broadcast live on KMET-FM and has previously only been available in bootleg form. Compared to the Dan's signature studio polish, this set, while impeccably performed, is a bit unbalanced and contains some sonic flaws that might turn some listeners off. However, it would be a shame to miss this spirited set from the Pretzel Logic era; Going Mobile is notable not only for its casual offhand vibe and predictably heroic musicianship, but for the inclusion of a couple of prime rarities in the form of the previously unreleased "Your Gold Teeth II" and "This All Too Mobile Home." If the drums are a bit too up-front and the vocals occasionally dip in and out, the set itself is a flawless document of a great American band in its heyday.
