    Gotta agree with the other posters below, Aja gets all the love, but this is the better record.

      Wow, this might be the best sounding record I have.

        I was fortunate enough to score a promo copy. Love this album. Such amazing musicianship on it.

          Amazing sounding LP for sure. If you see Ludwig at MASTERDISK in the deadwax it's a blind-buy.

            Fantastic pressing! Unfortunately my copy was stored in a PVC envelope and now my vinyl record is a little bit cloudy. I've found a tutorial on youtube to remove (at least, clean and polish the record) this strange film.

            Added my variant.

              Yeah this Bob Ludwig Pressing is fantastic! This is the pressing to get.

                This is still the best sounding version I've ever come across. Dynamic, crisp and just all-around perfect. Don't waste time with any other audiophile pressings – this is the one to get.

                  Listened to Gaucho again for the 1000th time and it sounds as magnificent and alluring as ever.
                  Incredible mastering, quality of arrangements (horns!) and musicianship - not to mention the dynamic range is off the charts. Gaucho and Aja are 2 incredible albums in their own right - love them both!

                    My copy has a gold stamp on the cover with "MCA-37220".
                    Is there a separate page with this addition on it?

                      I listened to this tonight on the occasion of its 40th anniversary. This album is a masterpiece, their finest, and only relatively recently (in my opinion), finally, being recognized as equal to Aja. This time I played Glamour Profession, my favourite song of all time by anyone. Sadly I'm reminded of how mediocre this pressing sounds. High frequencies, including vocals, are just veiled and muddy. I'm surprised there isn't a good mainstream audiophile pressing.

                      But then I remember that Steely Dan benefited from the rise of digital music formats like no other band. This is a recording that truly sounds wonderful on a clean digital source. Just check out the drums on Babylon Sisters. Purdie does this really subtle roll that is crystal clear on CD but just muddy on vinyl.
