Steely Dan - “Reelin’ in the Years” (live)
from Alive in America
This song has always been near the top of my own personal pop chart, and I was blown away when this version came out on the Alive in America album. It’s a terrific arrangement. I’m a Steely Danoholic.

Novos Baianos - “Mistério do Planeta”
If you like ’60s and ’70s rock but don’t know about Brazilian MPB rockers Novos Baianos, I recommend a thorough checking out of their music. This video is taken from the 1973 film Novos Baianos F.C. Featuring the electric lead playing of Pepeu Gomes and frequent loose collaborations with other artists and groups, Novos Baianos were active throughout most of the 1970s. They were quite popular in Brazil and enjoyed the friendship of bossa nova pioneer João Gilberto.
