Intervention Records is thrilled to announce 100% analog vinyl reissue of Joe
Jackson's 1979 New Wave classic I'm the Man. These monumental release is among
the latest LPs to comprise Intervention Records' ongoing “(Re)Discover Series.”
"Intervention Records has once again produced a top-notch vinyl reissue that should prove appealing not just to the audiophile market but to anyone looking for a favorite album in unparalleled sound. There’s tremendous presence on this clear, clean and quiet analog reissue, remastered from a 1/2-half-inch safety copy of the original stereo master by Kevin Gray at Cohearant Audio and pressed at RTI. Surrounding Jackson, Houghton’s drums practically jump from the speakers, while Maby’s bass and Sanford’s guitar are equally well-defined in the balanced soundstage."
"Impressive as the sound is, the packaging is comparably excellent. The Stoughton-printed jacket is a heavy-cardboard single-pocket gatefold with high gloss; the vinyl with replica A&M Records labels is, of course, housed within a protective inner sleeve. Intervention’s I’m the Man is a perfect way to reacquaint yourself with this edgy classic from a young artist with a lot to say. Happily, the label promises that Look Sharp! as well as Jackson’s biggest commercial success, Night and Day, are on the way in similarly lavish editions. One has no doubt they’ll look, as well as sound, sharp...a top-notch vinyl reissue that should prove appealing not just to the audiophile market but to anyone looking for a favorite album in unparalleled sound." - Joe Marchese, www.theseconddisc.com
I'm the Man was a critical and commercial success, punctuated by the smash "It's
Different For Girls," "On Your Radio" and the title track.
The album was mastered 100% analog by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the
best source available- phenomenal sounding 1/2" safety copies of the original
stereo master tapes. All of the top-end energy and “snap” of the original UK LP
is preserved, while the bass foundation is fully restored to make this new
Intervention reissue the definitive listening experience for the classic LP!
"....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.. As we've come to expect from Intervention, the Tip-on packaging is first rate as is Kevin Gray's mastering from analog tape, pressed on 180 gram vinyl at RTI." - Michael Fremer, www.analogplanet.com, 8/11 Music, 8/11 Sound
"... a bigger, richer soundstage that lets the instruments stretch out and interact, and brings Jackson's voice and words into greater relief." - Joe Taylor, SoundStage!
