-- Katy Lied is such a great album. --

You can't have a discussion about Steely Dan's Katy Lied without also touching on the infamous dbx debacle, obliquely referred to in Becker and Fagen's 1999 liner notes, but explained with some gory details by Dias. The mysterious dulling of the sound during the mixing process so frustrated everyone -- even reducing the `immortal' engineer Roger Nichols to a mere, dumbfounded mortal -- that the task of remixing and mastering fell to Dias by default, because no one else wanted to do it. To the great credit of Dias and Becker (who stepped in late into the process), the album was salvaged sufficiently enough for release.

I never noticed ;-)

Contains Gold Teeth II, the piano/guitar solo gives me goosebumps.
