Hearing this jam now, I can hear that Donald Fagen copied it on Rikki Don't Lose That Number (1974). Compare the intros...

Wait, what? Both sides of an already very ambient album at half-speed?

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Well, I'm thinking Tijuana, some Bolivian marching powder, tequila, strippers and a donkey, or else a quiet soiree at the Boca Cheeca Lodge, just some red wine, food and the sunset.

https://www.cheeca.com/

I say option A, but I'm notoriously bad at life decisions.

Option B! USD $280 for a double queen for a night? I've had cocktails on the pier there (in the early nineties), it is gorgeous. You can wade out from there 200 yards or metres or whatever in swim-trunks with a cocktail in hand, put your face in the 3 feet (un metre) water with a swim mask on and you will drop your drink, a barracuda will be 8 feet from you, staring, full profile. Those bitches are all teeth and silver.

That is a masterpiece, historically unique.
Listening to it & knowing how old it is was a revalation for me.
It predates the sound I liked to listen to in the 90s by at least 10 years.
OK, that's complicated: I liked to listen to guitarry late 80s stuff in the 90s - think Sister of Mercy, Smith's etc. (*) - and Don't Fear the Reaper is like a blueprint for that sound, and predates the typical bands by 10 years.

(*) I know the history books cite other, very different bands as being influenced by them, but there's a very particular guitar/band sound emerging in that time, and Don't fear the Reaper is the blueprint for that, historically.
Another kindof obvious example is The Cult.

I see what you mean by The Cult being obvious...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8g6h1vI4Xv0

But complicated, indeed.

You're losing me with Sisters of Mercy, that sounds very Brit new-wave to me...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-RVJyNpfDk

And if you mention "unique Smiths guitar sound" I immediately go here...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnpILIIo9ek

Which leads me to guitarists like Andy Summers of The Police, Bono from U2, and especially this album by Cocteau Twins (a fave of mine, this would be in my "stranded on a desert island in the Pacific" collection)...

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P … JevyYvrzDn

-edit- I get it, you mean the short lead guitar solo, not the general guitar soundscape. That does indeed remind me very much of Andy Summers (completely different style, similar lead guitar breakout)...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6wiWXw3voY

Ladies and gentleman, the greatest studio band of all time, The Police. I love U2, U2 sucks in comparison. U2 doesn't make my top 100. The Police, The Beatles, The Who, Hendrix, The Clash, that's my Top 5.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Yipes, thanks! Boner and The Hedge I used to say to my best friend back then. So pretentious, The Edge. You play with chorus and effect pedals. Bugger off, mate.

The Hedge at his studio best, IMO. Really flipping evil...
