Offered for sale is an original Japanese white label promotional copy of the 1980 LP Gaucho by Steely Dan, including the original obi.

About this copy: This copy of Gaucho is an original 1980 Japanese pressing on the MCA label.

The cover, obi, and insert are M-.

The white label promo disc is M-.  There are a few spindle marks on the labels, but the vinyl is pristine with no marks whatsoever.

While the album plays well, it’s not dead-quiet and has some surface noise during soft passages.

A beautiful copy of a terrific (and great-sounding!) LP that’s quite hard to find as a first pressing.

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.
