To Elliot Scheiner: Steely Dan

I am a huge fan of the Royal Scam and Gaucho and the Nightfly, pretty much all the Dan stuff.

What gives those albums such a clean sound? Is it all close mic'd and overdubbed a million times? Compression? Or just a combination of the arrangements and players etc.?

Thanks again!

I seldom used compression or eq while recording those records. It was more a combination of the songs, arrangements, production and the way I hear their music. There was a synergy amongst us that created the final product.
