The last of the truly classic first four Steely Dan albums, the 1975 Katy Lied also sounds like the best. While retaining a solid rock foundation, the music finds Walter Becker and Donald Fagen engaging their jazz influences more successfully than ever; Fagen's piano fills alone are some of the most impressive music laid to tape in the 1970s. The songs, too, rate with the team's very best, whether coolly anticipating global financial collapse ("Black Friday"), celebrating the legacy of a mob-hit victim ("Daddy Don't Live in That New York City No More"), or letting the Dan's guard down with a pained three-minute survey of life on Earth ("Any World [That I'm Welcome To]"). --Rickey Wright

This album was strangely overlooked on first issue in the 70s, and had a look-and-feel of being a bit thrown together. Turns out the sleeve design (and notes) were supposed to mimic 50s jazz albums of Walt and Don's acquaintance, a fact that passed most of us by at the time. Whatever, the songs, shorter and slighter than a lot of the Dan catalogue nevertheless contain all their hallmark quality. "Bad Sneakers" contains their most sardonic guitar solo bar none, "Daddy Don't Live" has a nastily-infectious hook and "Doctor Wu" contains one of their most beautiful melodies. Snappy and clever lyrics are in place as usual (no 'Moons and Junes' for these guys), and the whole thing reeks of class. I've lived with it for 20 years but it still sounds fresh, and it makes great listening in the car. Turn the volume up, open the windows and give the neighbours a treat.

I bought Katy Lied over 25 years ago and was a bit disappointed. After Can't Buy a Thrill, Countdown and The Royal Scam I found it a bit dull and 'muddy'. It was the Steely Dan album I played least. It was only years later that I learned Becker and Fagen were so depressed about the sound of the album even they would never listen to it.
The remastered version is a revelation. It's like seeing an Old Master that's been restored after gathering centuries of dust and grime. The colours are suddenly vibrant and the scene full of life. The sun has been let in, making Katy Lied sound much more like the precursor of The Royal Scam.
Despite its roll call of drug dealers, gangsters, paedophiles, pimps and prostitutes, it represents some of the most beautiful music ever created, by one the most underrated partnerships in rock.

Format: Audio CD
They couldn`t possibly keep it up, could they? A debut any band would kill for, an even better follow-up, a third masterpiece of a darker hue - now the intriguingly titled Katy Lied, with its murky, insectoid cover.
They`d lost the great Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, whose guitar adorned and uplifted their first trio of albums, but the main event in the Dan itinerary was always the joint talents of songwriters Walter Becker & Donald Fagen, the latter`s drawly, sardonic vocals, and their brilliant arrangements, often with hints of a jazz sensibility, all wrapped up in the catchiest of melodies, a dash of melancholy, a sprinkle or two of deceptively sun-dappled irony, as well as a jaded, impressionistic view of post-war, post-sixties America that is a cousin to the sarcasms of Randy Newman, and (I would hazard) will outlive by decades the far less musically and lyrically timeless posturings of the Velvets or the arch pomp of the Doors.
Katy Lied is closer in feel and spirit to Countdown To Ecstasy, with still an echo of the edgy sound heard on its successor, the superb Pretzel Logic. Fagen`s voice is to the fore and the songs are as memorable as ever, each of the ten songs as ear-gladdening as any pop/rock music being made back then - or any time.
This is one album that feels like a coherent whole, with no `highlights` as such, though it`s worth mentioning the marvellous Doctor Wu with its terrific alto sax solos by jazz musician Phil Woods (no stranger to more commercial waters, having had a paddle with Paul Simon and others).

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Somewhat oddly, if the rest of these reviews are anything to go by, this was the first Dan album I ever heard or bought. Although I can take or leave a couple of the tracks - I've never really got into either "Daddy Don't Live...." or "Everyone's Gone...." - the album is worth buying for three reasons:

1) The soaring Denny Dias guitar solo on "Your Golf Teeth II" - which is the closest thing to aural paradise ever recorded
2) Michael Omartian's piano triads right at the end of "Throw Back the Little Ones"; and
3) The all-round excellence of "Doctor Wu"

So don't be put off by the cover - just buy the album and enjoy it!

(By the way, I'm not sure that the Amazon reviewer is right to praise Donald Fagen for the piano fills. I think that Michael Ormartian played piano throughout, and that Fagen hardly touched the Bosendorfer that they had bought specially for the album sessions.)

Having owned most of the Steely Dan catalogue for some years this album was a hole that I had never felt the need to fill, maybe its the odd cover thats off putting. This however ranks at the very top of the Steely Dan tree, the lyrics are just as clever as one expects but there is an easy accessability that can be missing when Becker and Fagen get too clever for their own good. From the wildly prophetic Black Friday through the catchy Bad Sneakers, the gorgeous but silly Doctor Wu, and one of my personal all time favourites in Any World. I have only one minor minor quibble, not being a fan of Michael Macdonald I find his backing vocals intrusive given his distinctive voice. If you only ever get two Steely Dan CDs make it this and Cant Buy a Thrill.
