Question regarding 'Kamakiriad'

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by fretlessb1, Jul 9, 2003.


  1. Just how much if any synth-bass is used on the recording.
    In recent months I listened to the recording numbers of times over, there still sounds like a number of tunes have it.
    It's tough to name specific tunes at this hour, and seeing that I am at work(supposedly working).
    I'll have to check the liner notes later today.

    Thanks..LenG

    It's been a while since I listened to it - but I can't rememebr any - I'm pretty sure it was all BG?

    And produced! No mention of synths there - I'm sure it sounds like WB all the way through - although I remember some of the bass lines sounded pretty good!!?? ;)

    I'll have a listen when I get home, but I gotta admit, I haven't really got into this album. I've only listened to it a couple of times, I think.
     
  6. Moley & Bruce, many thanks...
    All of the postings regarding the newest Steely Dan really got me thinking about all of their recordings: collective and/or solo.
    I've never bought Becker's solo stuff, always ran into some other recordings that called my name a little more.

    I thought Becker's solo, "11 Tracks of Whack", was decent. I still listen to it. There are about 5 songs on there that I really like.

    Becker played bass and produced.

    As far as I am concerned it is a Steely Dan album.

    I wish they had hired someone else to play "Snowbound", but otherwise I love the album.

    Are those the 5 with Fima Ephron on bass?

    I see that Walter gives kudos to "the supreme Roger Sadowsky" in the disc's liner notes.

    Becker is playing a Sadowsky guitar, right?

    And a Sadowsky bass as well.
