The Entire Steely Dan Catalog is to be Reissued on Vinyl

The reissue series will take one year

The popularity of Steely Dan’s thought-bending jazz-rock is on a new rise, which is prompting Geffen/UMe to reissue the band’s complete catalog on 180-gram vinyl. The reissue program will take a year, starting from November 2022.

There will also be a limited-edition premium 45 RPM version on Ultra High-Quality Vinyl (UHQR) from Analogue Productions, the audiophile in-house reissue label of Acoustic Sounds. Analogue Productions will also release this series of titles on Super Audio CD (SACD).

The series will kick off on Nov. 4, 2022, with the album that started it all, Steely Dan’s legendary 1972 debut LP, Can’t Buy A Thrill, now in its 50th anniversary year, featuring the band’s breakthrough hits, “Do It Again,” “Reelin’ in the Years,” and the recently viral “Dirty Work,” with original lead vocalist David Palmer.

According to the press release, all albums are being remastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analogue tapes except for Aja, which will be mastered from an analogue, non-EQ’d, tape copy, and Gaucho, which will be sourced from a 1980 analog tape copy originally EQ’d by Bob Ludwig. (There’s no evidence that the original tapes containing Aja and Gaucho‘s flat mixes were delivered to the record label and it’s presumed the tapes no longer exist.)
