Steely Dan beyond perfection

Finally got around to watching the Steely Dan documentary that's been sitting in my netflix queue forever, last night.

Outstanding! As one of their many hired session musicians says, their goal wasn't "perfection," it was beyond perfection. They wanted to create something we would want to hear again and again. Mere perfection is tiresome. Aja and "Deacon Blues" are better than that.
