Brand new sealed 7 X LP box set
A few weeks back, we praised Donald Fagen for coming up with the title of the box set that spans his entire solo career: CHEAP XMAS: DONALD FAGEN COMPLETE. Now we’re going to praise him again – although we’ll pat ourselves on the back a little bit, too – because in addition to the 5-CD version of the set, there’s now also a 7-LP version of the set.
If you know someone who’s a Fagen fanboy but hasn’t gotten around to picking up all of his solo albums, then this is a perfect bit of one-stop shopping. And even if you’re a fan who does have those four albums – which are, for the record, THE NIGHTFLY, KAMAKIRIAD, MORPH THE CAT, and SUNKEN CONDOS – there’s still something here to help sell you on picking up a copy: 10 EXTRAS, which features 10 solo Fagen songs that aren’t on any of the aforementioned albums.
Oh, and there’s something else special for the vinyl aficionados: this set offers the first-ever SUNKEN CONDOS release on black vinyl.
Now, granted, since it’s vinyl, the title could arguably be seen as ironic – suffice it to say that it’s a little pricier than the CD version – but it’s a perfect present for the Fagen fan in your life, and if you need to be reminded of the material that our man Donald has released under his own name over the years, here’s the full track listing for your perusal.
