Steely Dan - Gaucho (1984)

Gaucho was Steely Dan's last album before the band's 10-year breakup from June 1981 to October 1991. The album, originally released in 1980, was also the band's last studio album until the 2000 release of Two Against Nature. Despite exceptional difficulties in the album's production (e.g., Walter Becker getting hit by a car, a dispute over what company had the rights to the album, attempts to get the record company to lower the price from $9.98 to the original $8.98 and the accidental erasing of an entire track - "The Second Arrangement" - by a recording engineer ), the album reached #9 on the charts and went platinum. "Hey Nineteen" reached #10 on the singles charts. The album is a departure from their previous works, even the heavily Jazz influenced Aja. Gaucho relies even more on the Jazzy sound of the previous album, and the crisp productions differ greatly from their initial rock sound.
