Steely Dan’s sixth album, Aja, is the group’s all-time best-selling album. Aja was the band’s first platinum album, selling over 5 million copies worldwide. In 1977, Steely Dan’s efforts on Aja were deservedly rewarded with a Grammy. The acclaimed album’s three hit singles, including “Peg,” “Deacon Blues,” and “Josie,” all remain classic rock staples to this day.
In this episode of Classic Albums, Steely Dan founding members, Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, recall the history of Aja, an album that was a year in the making. The two bandmates remark about the album’s imminent path to success and the risks they took during the recording process. Tune in for the season premiere of Classic Albums: Steely Dan – Aja Wednesday, February 7th at 9/8c on AXS TV.
