3 stars This CD makes a good introduction to the versitile music of Becker/Fagan/Steely Dan. I remember I bought this back in the day, before I was a fan of the band. It is a combination of their earlier work such as "Do it Again" up to later songs like "Peg" and "Josie". Like all greatest hit compliation albums, much is missing from the career of Steely Dan. I would have liked to see "The Royal Scam" for example. This album seems to be concentrating on the radio/hit friendly side of Steely Dan, which is certainly fine, but we all know they were capable of putting out some great jazz/prog numbers. Use this for Steely Dan newbies, and then dive in to their work with albums such as AJA, THE ROYAL SCAM, and CAN'T BUY A THRILL. You will not be dissapointed. (And check out Donald Fagan's solo work, by the way). 3 stars
