referencing Katy Lied, LP, Album, ABCD-846

Now I want you to close your eyes, smoke a joint if you’ve got one, step into the Wayback Machine and imagine it’s the year 1974. In the year 1974 there are no compact discs, there are only vinyl records and cassette tapes, both of which inherently have background noise; which more and more people are complaining about since the quality of home stereo equipment is only getting better and better by the day. Now ... imagine that there’s a make-believe band of quirky oddball perfectionists, well actually this band is really just two people posing as a band, and they’re on the verge of stepping through a futuristic door, behind which lies a brand new and nearly untested technology called DBX Noise Reduction. Of course there’s been a tried and true noise reduction technology called Dolby, and that’s successfully been around since the mid 60s, but DBX is newer, it’s the future, it’s bright and forward looking, relying on nothing from the past. So these two musical geniuses [or at least that’s what they’ve been told since they were 17] boldly step through this door that promises sonic perfection and decide to utilize the height of recording technology, and roll out their gold teeth, betting on DBX.

The process is straightforward enough, the DBX system compresses and encodes the recorded signal as this signal is committed to a master mixed analog tape, and then during playback, expands those compressed signals, thus reducing the dreaded background noise. The sessions are going wonderfully, the future is actually brighter than anyone could have imagined. The band recorded song after song, each better and more complex than the last, each laced with decisive nervous energy, each counterbalanced by the tracks that came before and after, with the album itself standing as a bridge between the highbrow conceptual rock of their past outings, and the jazzy blues infused concepts they envisioned for the future.

Sometime after the sessions were mixed and put to bed, with everyone sitting around rubbing their bellies filled with satisfaction, it was discovered that the DBX system had lost the ability to decode the mixes correctly, with absolutely no accuracy, and every single song sounded terrible. Folks were pulling their hair out, I mean literally pulling their hair out, as the DBX system could only be decoded by DBX equipment, and nothing was working as it should.

So what does this band do? With tapes under their arms they chart a course to Boston, a city made famous in one of their previous songs, where the mythological headquarters of DBX was located ... though before leaving, they make sure there’s gas in the car, they don’t wanna run out again, as Kid Charlemagne had done before. In Boston a team of professional technicians in white lab coats and gloves hover over the tapes trying to figure out how to save them, only to discover that they can’t, that all is lost.

Yeah ... I know, this all sounds like it could easily have been the pretext to one of Steely Dan’s songs. But it wasn’t, it was fact, leaving Fagen and Becker with the original tapes, which meant much too much time remixing and editing using Dolby Technology; and with mounting frustration, they actually considered shelving what was left and scrapping the entire project. Of course, in the end our two geniuses produced an acceptable mix, certainly not what they wanted or envisioned, and released the vinyl album. Though it would be a stoner’s delight to consider what would have happened had this album filled with transition refinement and texture never been released, and then the sheer delightful madness of pulling those tapes off the shelf some 40 years into the future, and filling the hole in the Steely Dan catalog … but that's just a vision we had while playing backgammon.

Now I thought the album was fine, perhaps a bit too shiny, with the drums and vocals just a bit off, other tracks were trebly in some aspects and dull in others. But the songs were enduring, and the concept of moving the band's sonic structure forward was in place ... an aspect which would have stood in stark contrast to their other outings had Katie Lied never seen the light of day; so I can only imagine how saddened Fagen and Becker were with the release, a release that should have shone like a brilliant star, yet instead is barely mentioned by the pair to this very day.

The thing about Katie Lied is that it all takes place center stage. The curtains open and every note is right in front of you, there's no stage left or right, just a saga that takes place in front of you at mere arm's length, and at times tumbles right into the audience. Yes, the entire process was utter madness, and in the same breath a testament to quality and endurance of Steely Dan material ... and all from an album that almost never was.

Although Katy Lied is a solid effort; it comes off as a band in the midst of rediscovering itself. Black Friday and Bad Sneakers are the highlights of the album but neither stack up to hits from previous efforts or the refined perfection that was to come. While I can't say anything bad about Katy Lied, I can't really say anything great about it either, except Jeff Porcaro's drumming is absolutely fantastic and possibly reason enough to check the album out. I'd recommend this for fanatics of the Dan, but everyone else can probably skip this.

let's talk about the music:
Even under torture I couldn't say,
which of the first 7 albums of this unique
band is the best, they all belong to a thing
called heaven.
Maybe this one is the weakest??
(But torture me on)
