Offered for sale is a limited edition half speed mastered U.S. pressing of Katy Lied by Steely Dan, issued by Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs.
About this copy: This copy of Katy Lied is a 1978 U.S. pressing on the Mobile Fidelity label of an album that was originally released in 1975.
While this is technically a U.S. release, the disc was pressed in Japan by JVC using their proprietary “Supervinyl” compound.
The cover is VG+ with slight edge and corner wear. The posterboard stiffener is M-. Included are a sheet to send in if the record is defective, a warranty sheet, and a Mobile Fidelity catalog, which at that time only had 8 titles!
The disc is VG++ and close to M- with a couple of very faint sleeve scuffs and a few spindle marks on the labels. It’s a clean disc that has had relatively little play.
A nice copy of a scarce Steely Dan LP.
Background: Released in 1975, Katy Lied was the fourth studio album by Steely Dan.
The album reached #13 on both the U.S. and UK album charts.
Building from the jazz fusion foundation of Pretzel Logic, Steely Dan created an alluringly sophisticated album of jazzy pop with Katy Lied. With this record, Walter Becker and Donald Fagen began relying solely on studio musicians, which is evident from the immaculate sound of the album. Usually, such a studied recording method would drain the life out of each song, but that’s not the case with Katy Lied, which actually benefits from the duo’s perfectionist tendencies. … It’s another excellent record in one of the most distinguished rock & roll catalogs of the ’70s.
