I was a lead vocalist in a Steely Dan cover band for a couple of years in the late 70's, outside the Chicago area. We were very lucky to have had gifted musicians in the band. You cannot play Steely Dan music and suck. Bar owners did not like us, not exactly dance music and disco had become the big thing. It was a great time. Love Steely Dan. Timeless music.

The Bodhisattva isn't what we expected, but the Dan is; long may they run.

Steely Dan DID play this tune on American Bandstand. I've seen the footage. Roughly '73 or early '74. The band that had David Palmer on vocals, Denny Dias and Skunk Baxter on guitar. They quit touring shortly after this era. They were some rough looking dudes back then!

I have a memory of watching Steely Dan ( I can't recall who was playing with Fagen and Becker) actually perform this song ("Bodhisattv a ) on "American Bandstand." No kidding. Is this possible? Can anyone confirm such an outrageous recollection ? ("...the shine of your Japan, the sparkle of your China...")
