This week's Seven O'Clock Sample is focused on the music of Steely Dan.  In 1976, the group released THE ROYAL SCAM.  The album's lead single was "Kid Charlemagne", a track who's lyrics were loosely inspired by the exploits of the infamous 1960s San Francisco-based LSD chemist Owsley Stanley.

This song was sampled by Kanye West on his 2007 album GRADUATION.
