Steely Dan - Gaucho download album

Gaucho is the seventh studio album by the American rock band Steely Dan, released on November 21, 1980 by MCA Records. The sessions for Gaucho represent the band's typical penchant for studio perfectionism and obsessive recording technique. To record the album, the band used at least 42 different musicians, spent over a year in the studio, and far exceeded the original monetary advance given by the record label.

saw the light of day, along with new ears who now heard an emancipation in what The Dan were laying down

Steely Dan. Babylon Sisters is perhaps their crowning achievement. Followed closely by Hey Nineteen. In addition, aside from their "clean sound", these guys have some pretty dirty ideas of what is fun. This album rocks out. Reply Notify me 3 Helpful.

Gaucho is the seventh studio album from Steely Dan and their last album before they disbanded. It had been a three year period between their last album Aja ( 1977) and Gaucho which was a bit unusual because Steely Dan had released albums every year between 1972 and 1977. The music is business as usual which means that itīs jazzy and laid back pop/ rock. Itīs very commercial music but still sophisticated enough to slightly interest me.

Its follow-up, Gaucho, while sonically similar, is its polar opposite: a precise and studied record, where all of the seams show. Gaucho essentially replicates the smooth jazz-pop of Aja, but with none of that record's dark, seductive romance or elegant aura. Instead, it's meticulous and exacting; each performance has been rehearsed so many times that it no longer has any emotional resonance

Just when I say "Boy we can't miss You are golden" Then you do this You say this guy is so cool Snapping his fingers like a fool One more expensive kiss-off Who do you think I am Lord I know you're a special friend But you don't seem to understand We got heavy rollers I think you should. Can't you see they're laughing at me Get rid off him I don't care what you do at home Would you care to explain

My thoughts-the whole Gaucho Album is about Life in Los Angeles/Hollywood and the Entertainment Business. I see Dan as exploring themes in albums-each song playing on the overall theme/idea-the way a novel does with chapters. So to figure this song, I see it as it is, but also in the context of the overall album. To me, this has always been fairly obvious song. I came here because I've been on a kick to listen to Steely Dan lately, and I've always liked Gaucho cause of the music, but also the lyrics and Donald Fagan's voice modulation is so cool. I couldn't remember what the song was about, so I cruised this blog. I remember back when the album came out it was rumored Fagan was pretty pissed at Walter's addiction problems, so you are correct on the assessment.
