Reviews:

''Can't Buy a Thrill'' is the first album by Steely Dan. Originally released in 1972, the album was a huge success. It went gold, and then platinum, peaking at #17 on the charts. In 2003, the album was ranked number 238 on ''Rolling Stone'' magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Two songs were left out from the album and released as a single ("Dallas" and "Sail the Waterway"), but to date they have not been released on CD.

The album was originally released in two-channel Stereo and also in a special four-channel Quadrophonic mix. There are some significant musical differences between the two mixes, such as extra lead guitar fills in the Quad mix of ''Reelin' in the Years''.

The album cover features a line of prostitutes standing in a red light area waiting for clients, an image which was chosen because of its relevance to the album title. The cover was banned in Franco's Spain and was replaced with a photograph of the band playing in concert. The title is taken from a line from Bob Dylan's song "It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry". Becker and Fagen themselves commented on the album art in their liner notes to the reissued ''The Royal Scam'', saying the aforementioned album possessed "the most hideous album cover of the seventies, bar none (excepting perhaps ''Can't Buy a Thrill'')." - Wikipedia
