Many goodies in this directory.

Lots of interviews and personnel listings.

I not only remember it, but own it on DVD. I also have the soundtrack on cassette. I don't remember where I saw it, but it would have been at the Meridian Mall or at Frandor in Lansing (now a Rite Aid).

I remember it well, and I still have my original gatefold promo LP in great shape. Someone at WTAC gave it to me when I was about 14 or so. I heard that Donald Fagen actually revolted at Steely Dan having to record "FM" for the soundtrack album. that sounds about right for Donald Fagen though. He's, like, the quintessential king dweeb of progressive rock. If you've never seen the "Yacht Rock" videos on the internet, they had a perfect depiction of what I'd imagine Fagen to actually be like in real life. Well, a bit less "scatty" perhaps.

Edit: Donald Fagen *always* had that puty scowl of "Leave me the fuck alone, dude!" on his face. I can't recall seeing a pic of him smiling, ever!

Did you ever hear a custom job for "AM"? The "a" sound in "Aja" is in the same key as the "f" sound in "FM". Can't remember exactly where I heard it, but somebody in an analog production room was pretty slick.
