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.

Steely Dan was that "underground" or FM sound that was almost mysterious, that out of body experience that people had never experienced before, their so to speak "first high". I was only twelve when Goucho was released and to this day their music has defined what music styles I find of interest to me.

This album sounds great. Solid bass and drums. Is there a better pressing?

Awesome sounding pressing. Don't look further. If this pressing doesn't sound good in your system, there must be something wrong :)

Found a copy of this with the gold promo stamp but can't seem to find a specific listing for that variation. Anyone have an idea of general range for a VG copy of that with the promo stamp?

No album was a product of the 70's crashing down on the band that made it more than Goucho. SD imploded during production and suffered irreputable damage. The question remains: How did this thing turn out so good??...coupled with: Wow this thing is bad...(not excluding the worst song they ever wrote: "Hey 19", blazing up the charts) Goucho polarized their fans more than any SD album...but with Babylon Sisters & Third World Man??...It's my 3rd fave SD LP. Knowing that the devastating lost track: "The 2nd Arrangement" was to be the 1st track adds to the legend of a Steely Dan masterpiece of Katy Lied proportions. Hey19 was the deathnell and a precursor to thing to come 12 years later w/ their solo CD's & more: - the dreaded blues. N

One of my favorite Dan albums. Although they borrowed a few motifs from Jarrett for the title song, it's my favorite one on the album, and some of Porcaro's most tasteful drumming on record.
