The cover is VG+ with slight ring and edge wear.  The lyric insert and generic MCA audiophil insert are M-.

The disc is M- with many spindle marks on the labels, but no marks on the vinyl.  It’s a clean disc that plays well.

A nice copy of a scarce Steely Dan LP.

BackgroundGaucho was the seventh Steely Dan LP and the group’s last album for 20 years.  The album reached #9 on the U.S. charts and #27 in the UK, helped by the single “Hey Nineteen.” gave Gaucho a 4 star review:

Aja was cool, relaxed, and controlled; it sounded deceptively easy. Its follow-up, Gaucho, while sonically similar, is its polar opposite: a precise and studied record, where all of the seams show. Gaucho essentially replicates the smooth jazz-pop of Aja, but with none of that record’s dark, seductive romance or elegant aura.
