Gaucho is 30 - Part 3 of 4

Our Album of the Month for November 2010; Gaucho from Steely Dan, inspired us to buy a book. And it's all due to the stoy behind the cover:

The cover is yet another one not featuring any band members. This time they went with a photo by one René Burri of a dancing couple found on a mural in Buenos Aires' La Boca district.

René Burri is a Swiss working as a professional photographer since the late 1940's. Among his best known work are the photos of the South American cowboy; the gaucho.

We found ourselves a second hand copy of The Gaucho from 1968.
