Steely Dan: Gaucho

Andy Gill, New Musical Express, 22 November 1980

THE COVER to this, the seventh Steely Dan album (discounting the Greatest Hits compilation), features a painting or anaglyph of a dancing couple of presumably latin derivation. It's charged with a kind of flamboyant, ritualized melodrama (a touch of macho in the hands?), and it fits the title well.

Total word count of piece: 747
