Condition: Brand New

Description

The brains behind the band project Steely Dan, Walter Becker and Donald Fagen were known for scaring their studio musicians out of the recording room with merciless criticism. Guitarist Dean Parks described their style as "one step beyond perfection". Arrangements have been refined to the point of absolute perfection - only to destroy the recording at the end and re-record it again so that the ease is not lost. In addition to the ingenious music, this will to perfection is one of the reasons why »Aja« could not be imagined without hi-fi demonstrations of the 1970s and 1980s. The recording team around the renowned sound engineer Roger Nichols consisted of greats from the audio industry: Bill Schnee, Al Schmitt and Elliot Scheiner. The meticulous recording with attention to detail draws every note crystal clear and all instruments are perfectly placed. Test your system!
