Format: Audio CD
The release of this album in 1989, just when the world of recorded music was becoming digitally-obsessed, showed that Karl Wallinger was years ahead of popular taste. In interviews at the time, Wallinger described how he'd lovingly preserved an analogue studio set-up from the 1970s to record "Goodbye Jumbo", and the album has a chunky, thick, analogue sound of the type that has recently returned to favour. No horrible echo-ey drums or digital 'shine' on this recording. It just sounds great in the context of current music, which can't be said of that many albums from 1989.

None of this would be of the slightest interest if Goodbye Jumbo didn't have cracking songs, but it does. The songs here are pretty much wall-to-wall classics, with the possible exception of the "Hello Trees, Hello World" naivity of the closing track. Elsewhere, however, on "Love Street" and "Sweet Sould Dream" Karl does blue-eyed soul with far more success than many more famous names, he does down 'n' dirty JB/Prince funk on "Ain't Gonna Come...", euphoric pop on "Take It Up", and moist-eyed singer-songwriterly masterpieces like "And I Fell Back Alone". All graced with the lightest instrumental touch where required, or big, thick guitars where they're required.

What we need now is a nice, remastered deluxe edition of the album with some of those excellent B-sides like "Nature Girl" thrown in as bonus tracks. Meanwhile, this sets the standard very, very high indeed.

*** 2012 update: The album has now been re-issued - excellent news - and the B-sides collected on the "Arkeology" box set for good measure. Good times for World Party fans! ***

Well, forgive me but i have only just discovered this wonderful group. Having tried to place their 90's hit single 'is it like today' for some time, and at last discovering the band who recorded it via the wonderful Net..i saw the reviews of 'Goodbye Jumbo and it was like a gift from God that i came across the Goodbye Jumbo LP going for a song at the local charity shop.
The singer has a fabulous voice, he can sound like Lennon, Jagger
or Dylan with gorgeous ease, and the influences of such classic artists is clear from almost the first few bars. The guitar he seems to play just like George Harrison..the melodies touch very much on Stones and Lennon...and there's a touch of Them on the first track too. Sweet sentiments, sung with feeling, and
warmth, harmony, and a highly enjoyable cover and sleeve to boot.
Hallo Jumbo...! Nice to meet you!! This is gonna be played again and again on my turntable...

Very very occasionally an album emerges that not only stands head and shoulders above the current musical climate, but is also able to be lowered into the box marked "classic". With "Goodbye Jumbo" World Party (essentially Karl Wallinger) have made such an album, an album that will not so much creep, but rather sprint headlong into your skull and plant itself inside your brain,calmimg your mind and warming your heart on the way in."Goodbye Jumbo " makes the world a much better place to be. Every track is joyous,a celebration of everything fantastic about pop music, mixing styles with ease. Karl clearly has a fantastic record collection, "got rare 61' Beatles" from "sweet soul Dream" confirms that. Wallinger is no plaguerist though,using his influences to pull the World Party ideal into new uncharted territory. From the deliciously groove based "Is it too late", thru the harmony drenched golden pop of "Message in the box" and the acoustic melancholy of "and I fell back alone", which will kill you every time, the album smacks of genius....imagine if Prince had listened to Bob Dylan and the Beatles instead of Sly Stone and James Brown, the effect would probably have sounded a lot like this. On the closing track "Thank you world", Karl sings "and I need to know that everything's alright".....and as the Hendrix esque guitars fade to a soothing acoustic, things are so so much more than alright. So good you 'll buy it twice....I did.

Like so many artists, the second album is often the most powerful and the is certianly true of Goodbye Jumbo, often regarded as *the* World Party album. The first and last tracks in particular are World Party at their very best with great tunes and very strong lyrics. As for the rest of the album, well... there's not a duff track on it.
