While waiting for the bus this morning I was musing over what certain pieces of music remind me of. This was prompted by Sarah Kennedy saying that they wanted to play Pretzel Logic, by Steely Dan, but couldn't find it.

Can't buy a thrill reminds me of the hot summer in 1976. Specifically, from that album, I remember being in the back of DaJo's car driving down Magazine Lane late at night with Reeling in the years blasting away. Do it again reminds me of MaPa at the record stall in the market hall one Saturday. He wanted a copy of the single as he didn't like the plastic organ solo on the album track.

Katie Lied reminds me of the middle room in the Albion Hotel, though I don't know why. It also reminds me of RiFi's music room where I first saw and heard it. This was also the room where I first heard I believed in Farther Christmas and it's B-Side Humbug.

My old school, from Pretzel Logic, reminds me of some party at the Chelsea Reach. I don't remember what the party was for but AnMa asked the DJ to play the track.

Hey-ho, back to work.

What to do now?

I've reached an impass with the 3 faults I was working on. One has got the nod and is on its way out of the door on the latest special. Of the other two, I think the CS/2AR one is now OK and needs checking, though on my previous performance I may well be wrong. The Band E Restriction/DHP change is in, but again, needs to be checked. So, without LyTo, I'm stuck.

After lunch.

Lunch was OK, it was basically a ham sandwich & chips.

Still no help with the faults I'm working on. I wonder if the hellkites that invent all these strangled rules understand the complexities of implementing them?
