A nice copy of one of the world’s rarest Steely Dan LPs.  It’s the first copy we’ve ever had for sale.

Background: Released in 1978, Steely Dan is a compilation album that was released only in Japan.

The album is noteworthy as being the only LP to include “Dallas” and “Sail the Waterway,” the two tracks from the band’s 1972 non-LP single.  For whatever reason, Donald Fagen has not been eager to see the two songs reissued.

The front cover has a photo of Japanese model Sayoko Yamaguchi, who had also appeared on the cover of Steely Dan’s 1977 LP Aja.

Tracks are:

  • Do It Again
  • Dallas (mono)
  • Sail the Waterway (mono)
  • Black Friday
  • Aja
  • Kid Charlemagne
  • Rikki Don’t Lose That Number
