from allmusic: Countdown to Ecstasy wasn't half the hit that Can't Buy a Thrill was, and Steely Dan responded by trimming the lengthy instrumental jams that were scattered across Countdown and concentrating on concise songs for Pretzel Logic. While the shorter songs usually indicate a tendency toward pop conventions, that's not the case with Pretzel Logic. Instead of relying on easy hooks, Walter Becker and Donald Fagen assembled their most complex and cynical set of songs to date. Dense with harmonics, countermelodies, and bop phrasing, Pretzel Logic is vibrant with unpredictable musical juxtapositions and snide, but very funny, wordplay. Listen to how the album's hit single, "Rikki Don't Lose That Number," opens with a syncopated piano line that evolves into a graceful pop melody, or how the title track winds from a blues to a jazzy chorus — Becker and Fagen's craft has become seamless while remaining idiosyncratic and thrillingly accessible. Since the songs are now paramount, it makes sense that Pretzel Logic is less of a band-oriented album than Countdown to Ecstasy, yet it is the richest album in their catalog, one where the backhanded Dylan tribute "Barrytown" can sit comfortably next to the gorgeous "Any Major Dude Will Tell You." Steely Dan made more accomplished albums than Pretzel Logic, but they never made a better one.

LIVE IN THE GOLDEN STATE APRIL 1974 Partly because of Donald Fagen's reluctance to sing onstage, partly due to he and Walter Becker's perfectionism, and partly because the pairs compositions and arrangements were so complex - requiring all manner of studio hardware to reproduce - Steely Dan played very few live concerts during their early career, indeed by the middle of 1974 they had given up touring entirely. The one album they did promote on the road however was their third masterpiece, the enigmatically titles Pretzel Logic , released in the USA on February 20th 1974.

Recorded Live January 2000, New York City.
The act that defined an era in sophisticated pop, Steely Dan, in a rare, intimate concert appearance from the year 2000.
Walter Becker, Donald Fagen, and their tight, sharp ensemble of advanced players and smooth backup singers have not lost a step - if anything, these renditions of Steely Dan hits, with their their tasteful licks, jazzy harmonies, funky grooves, and compelling and mysterious lirics, are even fresher and cooler than they were on record.
And the hits are certainly here: "Green Earrings", "Cousin Dupree", "Josie", "Pretzel Logic", and many more. An ear-opening evening of great music from one of the most tasteful, intelligent, and overwhelmingly popular bands of our time.

A Decade of Steely Dan was one of the first compilations designed for CD, so it was intended to showcase digital sound as much as the music itself. Consequently, it's balanced to showcase at least one song from each of the band's albums, leaving off the compilation such minor hits as "Pretzel Logic," "The Fez," and "Josie." Nevertheless, the songs here — including "Do It Again," "Reeling in the Years," "My Old School," "Rikki Don't Lose That Number," "Kid Charlemagne," "Peg," "Deacon Blues," "Hey Nineteen," and the non-LP "FM (No Static at All)" — provide a good overview of Steely Dan's career, making the disc a fine introduction to the innovative jazz-rock group.
