This episode of the CLASSIC ALBUMS series offers a vivid portrait of the making of the canonical 1970s record AJA by Steely Dan. Band members Walter Becker and Donald Fagen recall the history of an album that was a year in the making, but rewarded with a Grammy Award and three hit singles. British songwriter Ian Dury, the Doobie Brothers' Michael McDonald, and music producer Gary Katz all add their fascinating anecdotes to this highly involving rockumentary.

This is a marvellous DVD on the making of Steely Dans great album Aja. All of Walter Becker and Donald Fagans legendary perfectionism is on display. Fortunately for us all the tapes of their sessions were saved, so we are able to hear some of the fabulous guitar solos they rejected for Peg; but then when you re-hear the original you understand why. There are interviews with many guest musicians: Jazz Tenor great Wayne Shorter. Drummer Bernard Purdie who demonstrates his uniquely funky drumming style. Michael McDonald talks about some the fiendishly difficult backing vocals he multi-tracked with himself. This is an essential purchase for the Dan fan or for anybody generally interested in the music making process by two of the most fascinating musicians in the business.
