Steely Dan To Reissue Classic ABC & MCA Records Catalog

Steely Dan will reissue an extraordinary run of seven classic albums released via ABC Records and MCA Records from 1972 through 1980.

The records catalog will return to vinyl with an extensive yearlong reissue program of the band’s first seven records, which is being personally overseen by founding member Donald Fagen.

The LPs, most of which haven’t been widely available since their original release, will be available on 33 1/3 RPM 180-gram black vinyl via Geffen/UMe and as a limited-edition premium 45 RPM version on Ultra High-Quality Vinyl (UHQR) from Analogue Productions. Analogue Productions will also release this series of titles on Super Audio CD (SACD).

The series will kick off on November 4 with the musical duo’s legendary 1972 debut album, Can’t Buy A Thrill, featuring the band’s breakthrough hits, “Do It Again,” “Reelin’ in the Years,” and the recently viral “Dirty Work,” with original lead vocalist David Palmer.

Additional albums will roll out periodically throughout 2022 and 2023 and will include the band’s sprawling 1973 sophomore LP, Countdown to Ecstasy; 1974’s jazzy Pretzel Logic; 1975’s swing-pop perfection Katy Lied; 1976’s guitar-driven The Royal Scam; 1977’s platinum-selling jazz-rock masterwork Aja; and their final album for MCA, 1980’s brilliant Gaucho.

Almost all albums are being remastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analog tapes.
