Walter Becker has died at the age of 67....
This just out:
One of the "Ultimate Guides" I've always hoped for. I have all the Dan, and solo, albums but know very little about them or the stuff behind the music. The piece on The Nightfly alone (#26 on my all-time albums list last year) provided a stack of info that I had no idea about. Fascinating and essential reading. Plus the section at the back, with collaborations and features, brings up yet more surprises and things to investigate further.
These issues seem to be getting less frequent, interspersed with (rather pointless and expensive) rehashed "Deluxe Editions" of previous publications (Tom Waits appearing as the latest), and the cover price has risen a bit, but they really are worth it. We've had Joni, Prince and now the Dan in the last few months!
Thanks for alerting me Eric. Will pick that up next time I am in Easons.
