This showcases all that is good in multichannel audio. I have the SACD and the DVDA, has anyone else noticed the menu on the DVDA spells the album Goucho.......Ouch
Maybe they were watching some Marx Bros. movies when authoring the DVD-A
Now that I have the DVD-A , there is this much more improvement over the SACD, which is still great (any MCH is good with me)...
BTW, anybody want the SACD?? I'm selling it!!!
This is one of my favorite, well, scratch that, it is MY FAVORITE SD record....get goosebumps every time "Time Out of Mind" plays....awesome stuff!!!
Kamakiriad is a great album, as is Gaucho. I believe that Fagen has yet to top Nightfly, which I prefer to Gaucho. Morph was pretty strong. I saw him live on that tour and again that year as Steely Dan w/McDonald.

The SACD of Steely Dan's 'Gaucho' is easily one of my all-time favorites. I have always been very surprised to not see 'Aja' in the same format. I did just recently get the new Japanese SACD (of Aja) which sounds phenomenal, but it's not in surround. Gaucho got me back into Steely Dan and resulted in my getting both "Last Mall" and "Everything Must Go". While in my opinion not as good as Gaucho, they both sound excellent in surround. I haven't noticed much of a difference between the SACD & dts CD (of Gaucho). Maybe I will give them both a spin tonight to see!
Some of the "Aja" albums' multi-track masters are missing (the title track and 'Black Cow' I believe) hence no 5.1 DTS cd, DVDA or SACD
Yes and there is a reward being offered for them by Mr Fagen. Now that would be the album to hear in HR 5.1!
who knows maybe they will turn up. How do you loose something like that?It's been stolen.
You lose something like that because ABC, and later MCA didn't run the tightest ship.
When I bought this I thought it was a Gaucho Marx album. I checked the credits and he's not on it.
Hooray for Captain Spaulding, the African explorer! Did someone call me schnorer?
