Lost Gaucho Restored is a project worked on by John Conquest (aka Sir Mix-A-Lot Rare Music on YouTube) that aims to restore the bad quality bootlegs from the album Gaucho by Steely Dan. This is a collection of what I've restored so far.
While there's still specific things that I don't have the know-how for to fix, and will update and upload the files to this collection when I do. I ask that if you have any information on the source of these, including physical copies, let me know in the comments. Thanks.

A Valuable Contribution to Culture & History
This unique audio restoration project by the dedicated Mr Conquest deserves recognition and reward, not least for the foresight of securing the results on Internet Archive where it can be freely enjoyed. Listen to the Brubeck-like harmonic modulations of "Talkin' Bout My Home"; the Latin infused "Kind Spirit" revealing Fagan at his most tender-hearted; or the sensational "Second Arrangement" - the unfinished masterpiece that nearly got away. Each track is a priceless contribution to late 20th Century contemporary songwriting, arranging and performance.
