burroughs musing . . .
Anyone else think that Fagen is the postmodern Dracula? SD has long been lechery's finest hour. My favorite of Gaucho's many favorite tracks. Long years ago in Austin, my crush on Julie Christensen was sustained by her cover of this with the heartbreakingly short-lived Minor Miracle. JC went on to a long-lived collaboration with Leonard Cohen, which I suppose is better for her, but I've always preferred SD's decadence to LC. While we're into the chisme, I should mention that author Rikki Ducornet (whose writing class at Gemini Ink I took several years back) is the inspiration for SD's less than iridescent (compared to Aja and Gaucho) "Rikki, Don't Lose That Number." RD and Fagen (and I think Walter, too) were all at Bard College together.
