Stumbled over to this amazing composition.

Although its recent creation it sounds more 80s than the 80s itself.

There a whiff of Miami Vice theme too...

Its on my listening loop since morning.

Do have a listen

Steely Dan - Aja

I have an old pressing and it sounds OKish. There are MQA versions of it available now. Might try that for comparison...

Googled this out about this iconic album art:

“Before his days on Saturday Night Live, Phil Hartman was a budding freelance graphic designer who designed album covers for Crosby, Stills and Nash, America and Poco. He was commissioned by Steely Dan’s management company to design the album cover. Hideki Fujii took the photography and featured Japanese model Sayoko Yamaguchi.

The simple-yet heavy use of black allows for the woman’s face, red and white ribbon and her dress and the title to stand out. The less-is-more design was in stark contrast to the highly detailed music featured on the album”

On the lighter side (the cover is all dark though), he could have taken any woman if he was going to crop the face pic... why pay so much to a professional model? :p

A few pics of the late Ms Yamaguchi - Japan’s first supermodel:

And here are a few reasons why this album is considered so special:
