It spawned a number of hit singles, including "Peg", "Deacon Blues", and "Josie"

Steely Dan's "Aja" is the ultimate popular music album man can ever created. Incredible sophistication with amalgamation of jazz & rock. Maximum performance derived from number of top notch studio musicians crystalized into this master piece. 20 March 2011 ·. gdata. Home At Last - Steely Dan. See all. Posts.

Upon first listen, it may be difficult to actually pin down why Aja is considered to rank among the best albums that the legendary decade of the 1970's has produced

Tracklist: 1. Black Cow, 2. Aja, 3. Deacon Blues, 4. Peg, 5. Home At Last, 6. I Got The News, 7. Josie.

A coolly textured and immaculately produced collection of sophisticated jazz-rock, Aja has none of the overt cynicism or self-consciously challenging music that distinguished previous Steely Dan records. Instead, it's a measured and textured album, filled with subtle melodies and accomplished, jazzy solos that blend easily into the lush instrumental backdrops. But Aja isn't just about texture, since Becker and Fagen's songs are their most complex and musically rich set of songs - even the simplest song, the sunny pop of "Peg," has layers of jazzy vocal harmonies

Grarana
The masterpiece by Steely Dan. Not my fave but no doubt the height of their career. Goucho would follow and attempt to continue a logical trajectory and it worked albeit at the sacrifice of their very existance. 3 songs were a girls name, 1 song was the greatest jazz/rock track ever devised. But the greatest achievement of SD's career was Deacon Blues....one of the very very few songs that came from Fagen's heart and in every way created the snowcapped mountain of their career. I like Goucho much better actually but their ain't no Deacon Blue there or anywhere else in pop music. N
Opimath
Absolutely fantastic. This is one of the records I pull out when I want to demonstrate to a skeptic how good vinyl can sound. This is the definitive version to me as well. Beautiful.
NI_Rak
Black Cow sampled by Mf Doom for Gas Drawls word
BOND
I have the same problem as described by others here, and it sounds "dull" and not crisp like the original.
Bludworm
Lacquer cut by Kevin Gray, enough said; these MCA reissues have a bad rep, but I assure you that this one sounds superb.
Tegore
I usually go MFSL if available but the Cisco copy seems to have high praise - any idea which vinyl version is indeed the best sounding?
Iphonedivorced
mrmittens I usually go MFSL if available but the Cisco copy seems to have high praise - any idea which vinyl version is indeed the best sounding? The AB and Cisco pressings are the two fighting for the number 1 spot usually. The rest are worse.
Azago
I can tell you that, in my opinion, the MFSL copy is really overly bright. Unpleasantly so. I have both the AA and AB ABC pressings and they sound great and are pretty easy to find. I have not heard the Cisco pressing.
Vital Beast
The cover was designed by Phil Hartman, yes graphic artist turned comedy actor Phil Hartman.
Llallayue
TheAgeOfAnalog The cover was designed by Phil Hartman, yes graphic artist turned comedy actor Phil Hartman. Fun fact: he also did the artwork for several albums by country-rock pioneers Poco! Phil Hartman was more prolific as an artist than you'd think.
MisterMax
Some copies have a glossy laminated gatefold; others have a plain old garden variety Shorewood card-stock matte gatefold sleeve. I owned both variants at one point - still have the matte version.
Wire
This is one of the best original 1st pressings. According to the Hoffman vinyl threads this pressing with the AB1006 (re-3) -A and (re2 or re3) -B on the flip is the definitive original pressing to buy! Avoid all AA pressings. Not as good as the AB. Do your research.
Phain
Ooh, good to know. I just picked up an AB1006 (re-3) at a flea market in VG condition for $1.
Gindian
Above link to ABC labels is down so we can't check the label design.
Vizil
It is up, just make sure to remove the period at the end
uspeh
This is the Dan laying down some super-slick shit!People: shit don’t get slicker than this!
Tehn
My copy is exactly the same except: (last numbers at each end)Matrix / Runout (Side 1 (hand etched)): MFSL-1-033-A4 SR/2 ORTOFON A 27MAY80 142Matrix / Runout (Side 2 (hand etched)): MFSL-1-033-B3 A SR/2 ORTOFON 30MAY80 132I was so excited to find it in my inherited collection!
Galubel
Coloured vinyl can get a bad rap, but this pressing on yellow vinyl is excellent.
Mildorah
Hello! I'd like to ask you how about the sound quality of this release? Thank you.
Marr
Best sounding Japanese pressing. A must have for any collection
Hidden Winter
I have just noticed that my re-mastered cd of Steely Dan's Aja has a total misprint on the cd itself that says Stelly Dan! Yes, please reread, STELLY DAN and not STEELY DAN! Is this rare as I cannot find anything about it on Google, eBay or anywhere. Please, if anyone knows anything about this can you let me know, thanks in advance.
Magis
probably bootleg/counterfeit? whats the # on it did you look it up at all?
Arilak
Does anyone else think this reissue sounds a bit flat compared to the original? The original is the type of album you use to show off your system. This import reissue does not have same punch. If you are not used to the original I'm sure you would be happy with it. So far I am disappointed after spending $35 for a new copy. Does anyone know of a good website to refer to and get reviews before buying online. In the old days I could have walked this back to the record store and exchanged it for something different.
Hellmaster
Flat sound.....and clearly inferior to an original? Do you understand rating systems....you gave it 5/5?
LiTTLe_NiGGa_in_THE_СribE
What's about this one In comparison with others UK presses (1977)?
Cia
A Must Have in every serious record collection. Yacht Rock at its best.
Beranyle
Incredible pressing! Was lucky enough to come across a clean used copy.
Beazezius
Simply one of the best played and produced records of the 1970's.Soft rock-jazz fusion with incredible session players and guests. Infectious and memorable tunes with clever lyrics. Gets better with every listen. A must for every collection.
Phenade
This is one of the best sounding vinyl records I've ever heard... Worth getting one in good condition and shelling out a little more. I can't compare it to any other pressing (this is the only version I own), but I can def say this one is incredible, awesome dynamics and deep sound, not quiet or loud, just perfect. Packaging is quality too, and looks really good with the obi strip
Hirah
BarnyardOrbit So which is the best pressing in your opinion? I just listened to this one and with the exception of some clicks due to scuffs I was really impressed with its clarity. Every time I play a great pressing of a record, I'm reminded how good vinyl sounds when its done right at all phases. Even with some surface noise it was a delight.
