I'll have to give the album a fresh listen. I was familiar with the DBX problem, but at the time of release, I wasn't nearly as focused on the band as I was when Can't Buy a Thrill and Countdown were released. (The latter album has always seemed underrated to me). I never understood why Aja is so highly regarded sonically (I'm not talking about the music or performances). That recording sounds dry and borderline antiseptic, to the point where the Cisco, which is even more "precise" sounding, has a very arid quality. That two LP Greatest Hits RL is a great sounding compilation. Can't Buy a Thrill is, to me, one of the best debut albums ever released- every song is different, most of it is radio friendly relatively short tracks; it is a musician's musician album- the playing is masterful despite the tuneful catchy songs. Elliot Randall's leads on "Kings" are absolutely lashing (and I believe first takes). Brilliant band -- at the time those early albums came out, nobody was even close to those guys. (Except, maybe, The Band, a different kettle of fish, and some of the early Little Feat stuff, which still gets play here when I'm in a mood).
