Dawn of The Dan: Featuring songs from Steely Dan's groundbreaking first albums of the '70s — Can't Buy A Thrill, Countdown to Ecstasy, and Pretzel Logic — plus additional selected favorites and hits.

21st Century Dan: Featuring songs from 2003's Everything Must Go and 2000's Grammy Album Of The Year Two Against Nature — plus additional selected favorites and hits.

As you can see all Steely Dan albums except Katy Lied will be played in toto on special nights.
However, the nights that have the fans buzzing are the Rarities show. What songs could be hiding behind that title?
