Joe Jackson

Body and Soul is Joe Jackson's jazz-infused followup to his 1982 smash Night and Day. It features two of Joe's most cherished compositions, "You Can't Get What You Want (Until You Know What You Want)" and "Be My Number Two."

Body and Soul is a landmark recording as well, being an early digital recording captured on a 32-track 3M system in New York City's Masonic Lodge.

Body and Soul's original PCM digital files are remastered to DSD by Kevin Gray at CoHEARent Audio. The results are amazing! Body and Soul has never sounded so big and full-bodied. The reverberant space of the hall is beautifully drawn, and more three-dimensional and holographic than ever, and the band more dynamically explosive.

The album art is beautifully restored by IR's Tom Vadakan and housed in a super jewel box.

This SACD is fantastic. Get it while you can.

Absolutely agreed - and the great news is that Intervention have re-scheduled the previously cancelled Joan Armatrading SACD for 16th October release.

There is also talk that this will not be the last Joe Jackson title that they do - The debut and Night & Day being the ones most likely. Here's hoping.

Agreed. I never thought Jackson quite hit his stride again after "Body and Soul" but any of the earlier ones would be great. Intervention have scheduled "Night and Day" for vinyl release so have obviously paid for the remastering.
