1971 Soundtrack Featuring an Early Incarnation of Steely Dan Reissued on Import Vinyl LP!
In the 1971 counterculture comedy You Gotta Walk It Like You Talk It Or You'll Lose That Beat, Zalman King tries to find the meaning of life. With Richard Pryor and Robert Downey, Sr. among the cameos, who better to cut the soundtrack than Steely Dan? Except that the Dan had not officially formed yet! With typical tongue-in-cheek touches, Donald Fagen and Walter Becker rise to the challenge as "The Original Sound Track," with fellow Dan guitarist Denny Diaz and drummer John Discepolo of previous vehicle Jay & the Americans; if you're a Steely Dan fan, you really need to check out this one-off soundtrack, cut just before they upset the rock applecart with Can't Buy a Thrill. Licensed from Cherry Red.
