If you were lucky enough to see Joe Jackson around about this time, the CDs throw you back there right in front of the stage, jumping around with all the other sweaty youth. The energy, urgency, rebellion, mastery, creativity, attitude.. it's all there. Over the years I've been lucky enough to see lots of Joe's gigs, with all the different combinations. Of all the musicians Britain turned out at the end of the 70s Joe is up there with Costello, Sting and all the big names, people you can listen to all day and never get bored. Love the man and his music and this is a fantastic collection at a bargain price. Buy "A cure for gravity" at the same time and read it while listening to the CDs. And when you've finished, buy some more. You won't regret it.
