Joe Jackson I’m The Man on 180g LP from Intervention Records
Mastered from the Original Analog Tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio and Pressed at RTI: Audiophile Press Agrees That Joe Jackson's I'm the Man Has Never Sounded Better
Joe Jackson followed up his auspicious 1979 debut Look Sharp! and hit single "Is She Really Going Out With Him" with I'm The Man a year later which climbed to No. 12 in the U.K. and No. 22 in the U.S. thanks to the No. 5 charter "It's Different for Girls." Recorded with the four-piece Joe Jackson Band featuring Jackson on vocals and piano, Gary Sanford on guitar, Graham Maby on bass and David Houghton on drums, Joe showcases his sterling pop chops and quirky wit on catchy numbers like "Geraldine and John," "Kinda Kute," and "Amateur Hour," challenging the 'angry young man' designation his debut had awarded him along the way. Two albums into his shape shifting career, Joe Jackson was indeed The Man!
“This Intervention reissue smokes the original in all of the ways that matter on a drum'n'bass'n'guitar driven record: sharper, cleaner transients, greater dynamic slam, and bass that digs all the way down. The perspective is again nearly if not fully mono, which increases the importance of the instrumental separation and clarity.”
—Michael Fremer, Analog Planet
“…a bigger, richer soundstage that lets the instruments stretch out and interact, and brings Jackson’s voice and words into greater relief."
