Listen To David Crosby & Steely Dan Perform ‘Wooden Ships’

On October 15 and 16, Steely Dan was joined by David Crosby for “Wooden Ships” and “Reelin’ In The Years” during their concerts at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. Croz shared soundboard audio of “Wooden Ships” from the second night of his collaboration with Steely Dan via journalist and JamBase contributor Steve Silberman’s Twitter.

The concerts were the first two nights of Steely Dan’s five-show residency at the Beacon Theatre. Steely Dan performed Aja in its entirety on October 15 and The Royal Scam in its entirety on October 16. David Crosby initially emerged towards the end of Steely Dan’s main sets to front the group on “Wooden Ships.” The two-time Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer co-wrote the tune with Paul Kantner and Stephen Stills. “Wooden Ships” was originally released by Crosby, Stills & Nash on their eponymous debut studio album in 1968. Crosby returned to the stage each night to add to the “Reelin’ In The Years” encores.

The soundboard recording David shared via Silberman was taped on the second night, as Steely Dan frontman Donald Fagen references how well the previous evening went in his introduction of Crosby. Stream “Wooden Ships” below or click on the link in Silberman’s tweet to download:
