Rev 5/1/21

Roger Nichols (Dan''s main engineer) made a back-up copy ("safety master") of each of the original stereo analog masters for Dan''s early studio albums, when each one was new. He stored the safety masters in his personal archive, preserved them well, and made a 24-bit digital copy of each one as soon as he obtained a studio-grade 24-bit A-to-D converter (an Apogee AD-8000, S/N 1) and gained confidence in it. These 24-bit masters are the basis for the 1999 remasters. He probably used an Apogee UV-22 to convert the 24-bit masters to CD-masters which sound as if they have a 20-bit dynamic range.

The 1999 CD-remasters for Thrill, Katy, Scam, Aja, and Gaucho are the excellent (Aja is awesome), but I haven''t heard Countdown''s or Pretzel''s yet.

In previous revisions of this review, I claimed that the 1985 Katy Lied digital master sounds much better than the 1999 KL CD, but I was apparently just hearing what I subconsciously wanted to hear. After further listening, I realized that the 1999 CD is slightly better than the 1985 digital master. However, the other 1985 digital masters are awful, mainly because most of the other original stereo analog masters were in lousy condition when they were digitized in 1985. Aja is tolerable but the high end had to be boosted and doesn''t sound so hot. Gaucho''s master was in fairly good condition, but it was played too fast when it was being dubbed to digital, so that the slower cuts on the digital master sound rushed. Katy Lied''s original stereo analog master was dBx-encoded (so the safety master is too), which apparently isolated the recording from the tape (and its deterioration) to some extent. So, even though KL''s original master deteriorated quite a bit by 1985, its recording wasn''t affected very much.

The fact that the two KL CDs sound so much alike, although the 1985 digital master was made with a 16-bit, 44.1 KHz digital deck with Apogee aftermarket input filters, is a testament to the quality of the Apogee filters, which are very complex, expensive active filters, due to the required steep cutoff at about 20 KHz. The typical stock filters had phase nonlinearities, which produced dry recordings with mediocre imaging, as can be heard in the Citizen and Very Best Of compilation-CDs. The Apogee AD-8000 used for the 1998 digital masters samples at a high frequency, so it uses very simple passive input filters which would take very little toll on the input signal.

Everyone loves "Aja, " but you are not a true Dan fan until you own , listen, and listen again to this brilliant , jazz-rock album by Steely Dan. There are no bad songs on this one, the musicianship alone is great, but the songwriting and lyrical strength of Becker and Fagan, well, enough said.

I own this album, the outstanding "katydid"/Katy Lied cover never gets old, the lyrics, the music, this one just does not get old. Even the recording was perfect. Just outstanding.

Other Dan albums are great, don''t get me wrong, but for a single marvelous Dan package from soup to nuts, well this is the one for me.

Steely Dan released their 4th album, "Katy Lied", in/ around March of 1975. "Katy Lied" stands apart in the Steely Dan discography--apart from "Your Gold Teeth II" with its fairly brief instrumental intro, none of the songs are over 4 minutes long, and also, unlike the previous album "Pretzel Logic", none of the songs here are considerably under 3. Additionally, they temporarily do away with extended instrumental solo passages--as good as the solo passages are on earlier songs including "Do It Again", "Bodhisattva", and the first "Your Gold Teeth" (from the "Countdown To Ecstasy" album), this album simply represents a somewhat different approach that strongly emphasizes Donald Fagen & Walter Becker`s incredible knack for sophisticated, focused, and supremely tuneful songwriting. "Katy Lied" contains some of Steely Dan''s most gorgeous songs ever--"Bad Sneakers", with its lyrics of desperation & defeatism, has a calm, yearning quality; "Doctor Wu" is a moving, meditative song of betrayal sung from the point of view of a Vietnam veteran with references to finding escape through drugs, and it has graceful chord changes, terrific piano fills, and an affecting vocal from Fagen; and the extremely bittersweet "Any World (That I''m Welcome To)" is wistful and uplifting, with music that uncannily conveys the feeling of the "misty nighttime" that Fagen mentions in the song''s lyrics--it also has excellent background vocals from Michael McDonald. The Dan''s characteristic pessimism and penchant for focusing on very dark subject matter is solidly in evidence on tracks such as "Black Friday" and "Daddy Don''t Live In That New York City No More", both great, bluesy tracks. "Chain Lightning" is a slow-blues given a good ol'' Steely Dan makeover, and it''s irresistibly grooving & has cool harmonies. The calypso-flavored "Everyone''s Gone To the Movies" was previously recorded in 1971 and appears here in re-recorded and somewhat re-written form, and it''s got a snaky, amusingly `seductive'' saxophone part which fits in perfectly with the, uh, "interesting" (*cough cough*) lyrics--it''s actually about a guy showing pornographic movies to juveniles--this may not sound like very pleasant subject matter for some listeners, but the execution is sly, and the feel-good chorus is undeniably catchy. The album ends with the amusingly corny and ''dumb'' "Throw Back the Little Ones". Overall, "Katy Lied" is a splendid Steely Dan piece & is essential for any serious collection.

The 1999 "original recording remastered" version has superb sound quality as you''d expect (with Fagen & Becker having long been the consummate perfectionists)--it also, in utterly characteristic fashion, adds some supremely sarcastic liner notes written by Fagen & Becker themselves, and the layout of the original vinyl LP is splendidly recreated as well. In the end, this is the most desirable version of "Katy Lied" to have.

This is primarily a review of the CD release than a critical review of its contents. About the music...what more can be said about 10 superbly crafted songs featuring creme-de-la-creme studio musicians and vocalists (particularly Michael McDonald). Hard to believe this is (now) 35 years old! Katy Lied: Timeless quality evidencing serious studio musicianship with a fun, wry approach to lyrics.

You''ve probably heard about the dbx noise reduction failure that compromised the transfer of the master tape version to vinyl (this was 1975 after all and unfortunately predated studio digital by some four years (Ry Cooder''s Bop Til You Drop being the first all digital commercial release in 1979)). Anyway, the record never sounded right and everyone knew it, despite the fact that Steely Dan went back in and retransferred the tapes to vinyl via a Dolby process (this per their guitarist Denny Dias). This also resulted in some additional remixing, also reported to debug Katy, but still the LP never realized the potential of the recording.

The transfer on to a medium with fewer persnickety limitations, such as CD, was anticipated to finally unlock Katy. Well, I''m here to report that the CD sounds terrific, detailed, balanced and not the least bit dull / lifeless. I''m listening to the CD directly from an older RCA 8x oversampling player into my Sennheiser HD 414SL headphones and it sounds like I''m listening to the studio feed. I don''t know who did the transfer to CD but it certainly rivals what I''ve heard from transfer wizard Steve Hoffman. Enjoy.

My Steely Dan rankings: Pretzel Logic, Gaucho, Can’t Buy A Thrill, Royal Scam, Two Against Nature, Katy Lied, Countdown To Ecstasy, Aja, Everything Must Go. But Donald Fagan’s Kamakiriad is better than Gaucho.
