8-Track-to-Day 21: Steely Dan - Can’t Buy a Thrill (ABC, 1972)
My stepfather always played Steely Dan in the car when I was growing up. “Do It Again,” more like play it over and over and beat it to death! But I later came around to this terrific album which Rolling Stone rightly included in its 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list in 2003. The sounds of the 70s live within this beautiful, and still working 8-track cartridge. Favorite cuts: “Do It Again,” “Reelin’ in the Years” and “Dirty Work,” but just listen to the whole thing - and if you’ve got an 8-track it’ll loop forever, and do it again to the other side of never!
