Background: Released in 1993, Kamakiriad was the second solo album by Donald Fagen.
The album reached #10 on the U.S. charts and #3 in the UK. The original U.S. release was on cassette and compact disc only; vinyl was issued only in Germany for distribution throughout Europe.
Donald Fagen’s second solo album is a song cycle of sorts, following the adventures of an imaginary protagonist as he travels the world in his car, a brand-new Kamakiri. It is an odd concept, and one that is not obvious to the listener, but reflection upon Fagen’s liner notes while listening to the album does tend to evoke a vision of a non-apocalyptic near future, where swingers sip cocktails and fresh vegetable juices as they groove to synthesized jazz-rock. …Kamakiriad is pleasant as background music, but in the end it doesn’t provide enough interesting moments to rank as a must-have. The static grooves, coupled with the long song lengths, and general lack of dynamic movement makes this record one of the least essential of Fagen’s recorded output. However, Steely Dan completists will certainly find enough here to keep them happy.
