Aja

LP (Item 33628) ABC, 1977 — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold
Also available
Steely Dan — Aja ... CD 4.99

An undisputed masterpiece, and a record we never tire of hearing – unabashedly the inspiration for our years of jazzy exploration as adults, even though it was probably the closest thing we ever got to the genre as wee lads! Walter Becker & Donald Fagan raise their already-high bar to new heights here – creating one of those rare records that flows together so beautifully, it's hard to remember where some songs begin and others end. There's a sense of perfection in everything about the record – the sound, the songs, the instrumentation – all woven together beautifully without any sense of self-consciousness. One majestic flow that starts with "Black Cow", and runs through classics that include "Aja", "Deacon Blues", "Peg", "Home At Last", "I Got The News", and "Josie".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(70s pressing with AB matrix, in the gatefold cover. Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has some surface and edge wear, and unglued top and bottom seams.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Gordon Waller

And Gordon
ABC, 1972. Near Mint-
A really great solo record from Gordon Waller – way way different than any of the 60s music he made as half of the Peter & Gordon duo – with a mature, rootsy vibe that really holds up all the way through! The notes point out that Waller's a farmer at the time of recording – ... LP, Vinyl record album
