The ongoing Steely Dan reissue campaign jumps ahead to the sixth Dan album and arguably Donald Fagen and Walter Becker's crowning achievement: 1977's Aja. (No fear: Katy Lied and The Royal Scam will show up later.) Aja, featuring "Deacon Blues," "Peg," and "Black Cow," has been newly remastered by Bernie Grundman from a pristine, non-EQ'ed, analog tape copy. Lacquers for UMe's standard 33 1/3 RPM 180-gram black vinyl version will be cut by Alex Abrash at AA Mastering studio from high-resolution digital files of Grundman's new masters and pressed at Precision. The package replicates the original album artwork. Analogue Productions' 45 RPM UHQR vinyl box set version will be pressed at the label's Quality Record Pressings on 200-gram Clarity Vinyl, and housed in a deluxe box. This luxurious pressing includes a booklet describing the UHQR process along with a Certificate of Inspection.
