<<< BACKWARD ("Home At Last") ||| ONWARD ("Josie") >>>
*** STEELY DAN SUNDAY INDEX ***
Shifty, start-stop rhythms, suddenly erupting musical asides and two guitar soloists (Becker and Larry Carlton), “I Got The News” has an irresistable, non-stop energy. The magical part comes on the first bridge, with chorus vocals led by Michael McDonald, quickly followed by a crisp guitar lead that I’m guessing was performed by Carlton. As the only song not discussed on the Aja documentary, this B side to the “Peg” single is more overlooked than even “Home At Last.” Being the “weakest” track on Aja is no weakness, and “I Got The News” puts to shame so many rock albums’ strongest tracks.
