to take the place of the mud shark in your mythology...

No special order.....

Reelin In The Years
My Old School
King Of The World
Rikki Dont Lose That Number
Night By Night
Dont Take Me Alive
Dr Wu
Any World
Bad Sneakers
Aja

Been a fan since day one....hard to choose only 10 tracks...I think they were an extremely talented duo with great sidemen...biting incisive satirical lyrics with simply stellar sophisticated pop rock with a healthy tribute to jazz. I have read over the years that other musicians were also big fans.
I suppose my avatar name gives it away.  ;)

Of all the Gaucho tracks, My Rival is probably the one most like their Pretzel-Royal Scam era.
