The guy plays a pretty mean flute.
And who comes here to wish me well? A sweetly-scented angel fell, She laid her head upon my disbelief, And bathed me with her ever-smile.
It appears the store is now closed...Amazing performance by Rajeev Raja Mumbai’s Rhythm House record shop prepares for its swansong Rhythm House LINK With music consumption an increasingly online experience, sales at Rhythm House, which has been around for seven decades, have been declining and its owners recently admitted defeat and made the decision to close down. “It has been on the cards for some time,” says Mehmood Curmally, who owns and runs the storeas its managing director, while his uncle, Amir Curmally, is the chairman. “Online sales of music, be it digital, streaming or physical sales through e-commerce, mean our sales are going to keep going down.”
geostrehl: Do you guys and gals think Ian likes Steely Dan? I've been thinking about this recently. Ian has stated that he doesn't listen to much music, but I'm sure he's heard a lot of the Dan.

tryin2b: Hi Geostrehl U gotta luv Steely.have u heard "everything must go"? but i gotta say as a player, I don't feel the same groove. It's the difference between Cajun and Appallacian. I love them both

geostrehl: Everything Must Go is a fantastic album. Behind Tull, Steely Dan is my fav. It's busy and complicated, but not in a prog way (like Tull), but more in a jazz way. I just wonder what Ian thinks of Donald Fagen, and the other way around.

nonrabbit: Steely Dan were a huge part of my teenage years in the early 70's. Had every album - listened daily - dreamed of seeing them Live.
