1982 debut solo album reissued on 180-gram LP!

Includes "I.G.Y.," "Ruby Baby" and "New Frontier"

Donald Fagen, the Grammy award wining voice of Steely Dan, since the '80's has continued to make an impact. His innovative 1981 release, The Nightfly, an instant classic was one of the first major pop releases to use the new digital recording technology, and also drew an Album of the Year nomination at the Grammy Awards and won France's Grand Prix du Disques.

This was Donald Fagen's first album project post-Steely Dan. Marking a considerable departure from his earlier work, The Nightfly eschewed that outfit's ironic distance in favor of autobiographical intimacy. The album, one of the best-produced ever, was recorded with the painstaking attention to detail that was such a part of Steely Dan. In fact, Fagen used the same top session players.

Produced by Gary Katz (Can't Buy A Thrill, Gaucho) and engineered by Roger Nichols (Steely Dan, John Denver, Beach Boys and many more), many of the musicians on The Nightfly had also played on previous Steely Dan records, including Jeff Porcaro, Rick Derringer and Larry Carlton. Similar to the Aja and Gaucho albums, a large number of studio musicians were employed, crediting 31 musicians as having played on the record.

This classic album received several Grammy nominations and produced two hit songs, "I.G.Y." and "New Frontier."
