5.0 out of 5 stars Such a versatile performer, 11 Mar 2006
This review is from: Live: 1980-86 (Audio CD)
When I first watched Joe Jackson meny years ago, it was difficult to make him out. "Live 1980/1986" sorts that out. JJ is a quite superb performer. From ballad to jazz to the most sensual and atmospheric rendition of the great "Stepping Out" you are ever likely to hear.
I bought this CD just for that one track after watching the video on TV. Even if you're bald, it will make your hairs stand on end.
Back that up with three versions of "Is she really going out with him", and excellent blasts of "Sunday Papers", and you have a CD which will hardly have time to gather much dust.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joe Jackson, Live the way It's meant to be, 8 Dec 2004
This review is from: Live 1980 to 1986 (Audio CD)
This was my first introduction to JJ and I still return to it frequently. On vinyl it is 4 sides which show 4 different tours. There are 3 incredibly different versions of 'Is She Really' which are unrecognisable from one another. JJ's live shows are magnificent and this album shows that perfectly. JJ and his band clearly love to play live, and this shows on his album 'Big World' which was recorded in live takes. If you know a few JJ songs, as you probably do, then this album will show you a few more that you will love. A definitive version of 'Different For Girls' is my highlight, but the whole experience is wonderful. But still no substitute for seeing The Man live in the flesh. An unsung musical legend. Thanks Joe.
