Joe Jackson Night and Day on 180g LP from Intervention Records
Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the Original Analog Tapes and Pressed at RTI: Night and Day Soars on This Intervention Records Reissue
In 1981, following the dissolution of the Joe Jackson Band, musical journeyman Joe Jackson recorded Jumpin' Jive, a 'musical vacation' paying tribute to swing and jump blues artists such as Louis Jordan and Cab Calloway. Returning to songwriting, he spent a large chunk of 1982 in New York soaking up the sounds of 'The City That Never Sleeps'.
The result was the masterpiece, Night and Day, a more sophisticated and melodic record built around keyboards and Latin percussion rather than guitars, and named after the Cole Porter song. With a new guitar-less band featuring Graham Maby (bass), Larry Tolfree (drums) and Sue Hadjopoulos (percussion), Jackson hit the road for a whole year, and the album became his biggest success, spawning the hit singles "Steppin’ Out," "Breaking Us In Two" and "Real Men."
Night And Day truly has it all - wonderful songwriting, incredible arrangements and both commercial and critical appeal - and it stands as Joe Jackson's only studio album to reach the Top 5 in both the U.K. and U.S.
“The Intervention reissue again beats the original A&M in every way.”
