Royal Scam album for sale by Steely Dan was released Nov 23, 1999 on the MCA (USA) label. Digitally remastered by Roger Nichols (Digital Atomics, Miami, Florida). It was the year of America's bicentennial celebration, but on 1976's THE ROYAL SCAM, Steely Dan masterminds Fagen and Becker did not share in the exultant spirit of the times. The title track--a vision of fallen America from the point of view of immigrants--has a mock-celebratory chorus: "See the glory of the Royal Scam," which typifies SCAM's heartfelt cynicism. Royal Scam CD music contains a single disc with 9 songs. ...See Full Description

||GREAT PIECE OF EXCELLENCE|
the previous review says it all. one thing i would like to add is the great guitar work by larry carlton and others.

||"So Good To Be "Scammed"'|
Every fantastic story posing as a song in this album, showcases losers and rogues; yet the musicianship is, absolutely, as good as Fagen/Becker and company, could and have, possibly produced! The guitar work alone is a tutorial on nearly every song (the wow-wow solo on 'Haitian Divorce' is so chilling and legendary, it alone is worth the cost of the disc!).

||Strange Van Morrison connection to this Great Album|
I have great difficulty in rating Steely Dan albums as I find they are created to such very high standards -no real flaws.

||Dark, Sophisticated and Fabulous|
The album cover gives one a glimpse of what to expect inside. A down-and-out guy, catching a few winks on a concrete bench amid the mean and menacing skyscrapers, in a dark and nightmarish setting somewhere in urban America.
By sirjack10 (Atlanta, GA, USA)
||Prescient and Acerbic|
This was Steely Dan's most venom-filled and morose studio offering. Though released in 1976, the majority of the songs could very well have been ripped from today's headlines.
