Out 9th October
Joe jackson is one of the most unique musicians in british pop history.
at the end of 2010, he went back on the road playing shows as a trio (with graham maby on bass and dave houghton on drums) all over europe. as always, joe jackson enriched songs spanning his whole career with new arrangements, making the old songs “new”, once again. classics such as ‘steppin’ out’, ‘got the time’ or ‘a slow song’ but also original cover versions of some of his idols’ tunes - david bowie’s ‘scary monsters’, ‘inbetweenies’ by ian dury and the blockheads and a stunning version of the beatles’ ‘girl’ with joe jackson alone on piano and vocals. the title “live music” is not a coincidence. mixed with extreme care, ensuring a warm and rich sound, the performances you can hear on this record are exactly what happened on stage - a rare thing in an era of re-recorded live albums. it is one of the best documents of joe jackson live, giving you the feeling of only being a few meters from the stage. now available as a limited edition on orange translucent vinyl for national album day.
