I love lists like that but I gotta make two corrections ...
Roy Buchanan famously played Vibrolux Reverb amps (way different than a Deluxe Rev).
Josie (from the SD album Peg) is Walter Becker on the all the lead guitar stuff on the recording and most likely into a twin or a deluxe. *Also, throughout most of Larry Carltons tenure with SD - especially all of his 'famous' solos - he didn't play Dumble amps. He used modded black face Fender Princeton reverbs.

I love the first two Roy B. albums and I'm a Steely Dan 'freak'.

They're decent. So is the re-issue Deluxe Rev and Princeton. The Deluxes can have kind of a nasty top end with OD and Distortion pedals unless they're slightly modded - actually a really easy fix if you can solder a little bit.
But, if you're looking for the real, iconic Fender clean tone still w/in a realistic budget ... try to find a 70s Silver Face (preferably with out the pull for boost switch on the volume control unless the amp is really low priced) or, an 80s Deluxe II, Concert, Twin II (even a super Champ) - these are known as Rivera era Fenders. As in Paul Rivera of Rivera amplification.

Something that this highlights to me is that it's pretty difficult to identify which type of amp is being used from the tone on a record; even on my own recordings, unless I've made a note somewhere, it's difficult for me to tell whether I was using the AC30, Fender or Marshall type amps!
Which guitar or which speaker cab is being used tends to be a lot more obvious.
Live in the room it's a different matter, probably due to the wide dynamic range allowing subtle nuances in response to be apparent; when pushed into overdrive the different amps/tube types seem to have their own characteristic way of compressing / reacting to touch and pick attack.
However, once it's recorded and mixed down those nuances are all but lost.
