Steely Dan

Can’t Buy A Thrill, the debut album by the cryptically sarcastically sneering yet jazzy rock/pop group Steely Dan, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.

Released in 1972 and starting off right out of the gate with the now-oft played, loved, and remembered musical paean to Las Vegas gambling over-indulgences, “Do It Again,” the sound and style of what made Steely Dan one of the benchmark groups of the 1970s is already evident. Coming to the fray with a more musical literary, erudite approach in their arrangements and lyrics and spearheaded by the duo of Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, Can’t Buy A Thrill is much more than an embryonic version of the later Dan. It’s also a smart, sharp record, with tight ensemble playing; hard rockers blended with soft yet still punchy ballads and radio friendly and Billboard charters like the aforementioned “Do It Again,” “Reeling in the Years,” “Midnight Cruiser,” and fan favorites, “Dirty Work,” “Kings,” and “Brooklyn (Owes the Charmer Under Me).” A worthy debut by a very worthy hall-of-fame caliber group.

Steely Dan

Aja, the consummate release from the jazz/rock/quirky genre stretching group Steely Dan, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.00.

By the time the album was originally released in 1977, Steely Dan had been already around for a handful of years, hits and successful albums under their belt (“Do It Again,” “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number,” “Dirty Work,” etc.) and it all crystallized with the release of Aja.

Donald Fagen Nightfly

This month, the Donald Fagen album The Nightfly is on sale for only $5 in MP3 format.

Released in 1982, The Nightfly was Steely Dan co-founder Fagen’s solo debut following the breakup of the band in 1981. The album is a bit of a concept piece, as it explores Fagen’s optimistic upbringing at the cusp of the post-war atomic age, when science would bring us colonies in space, better living through chemistry, and “more leisure for artists everywhere.” It’s the perfect soundtrack for your retro-Mad Men chill pad.

FYI – Steely Dan’s Aja is also on sale this month for only $5 in MP3 format. Browse all 1,000 albums on sale this month for only $5 each, as well as several albums on sale this week for only $2.99 each.
