Steely Dan: “My Old School”

This great version of the song is especially energized, perhaps because it was recorded in a small venue in Clarkston, MI.

Here are FMPearl of the Quarter, Daddy Don’t Live in that New York City No More and Cousin Dupree. The latter two are among the great lyrics in the history of rock and roll. Two other great Donald Fagen tunes are New Frontier and the title track from The Nightfly, his terrific 1982 album.

If I am reading this correctly, Fagen is married to the mother of the late Levon Helm’s daughter. This page at Fagen’s site was written after Helm died. Steely Dan’s site appears to not have been updated recently. Here is Walter Becker’s site.
