Intervention Records is thrilled to bring Joe Jackson's Summer in the City
Live in New York to vinyl for the very first time! Previously available only on
CD, Summer in the City joins IR's wildly successful vinyl reissues of Jackson's
early New Wave classics Look Sharp!, I'm the Man and Night and Day.
Summer in the City's repertoire is an amazing bridge that spans the greatest
hits of Jackson's early canon with stunning new arrangements and covers from
other great songwriters. Jackson classics like "Fools in Love," "You Can't Get
What You Want" and "It's Different for Girls" meet with covers as diverse as
Duke Ellington's "Mood Indigo," The Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby" and Steely Dan's
"King of the World."
Summer in the City was mastered to vinyl by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from
brand-new high-res master files. Summer in the City was recorded live in New
York City in August of 1999 by Steve Remote and Co-Producer Sheldon Steiger.
Sony's archivists and Battery Studios' Mike Piacentini compiled new high-res
digital master files from the original DATs with the final mixes, and IR
consulted with Remote and Steiger on key aspects of the recording to ensure the
best possible source files were used. The result is an absolute sonic stunner,
brought to new life on this double LP set!
Summer in the City's original album art has been rebuilt into a beautiful
gatefold jacket by IR's art director Tom Vadakan.

This performance is, in one word: MAGIC
What one can accomplish with a 3 piece band is absolutely stunning and of all the Joe Jackson live work, this is my favourite by far. The arrangements are amazing, the songs flow well with a soulful quiet interlude from Duke Ellington with Mood Indigo and Eleanor Rigby and the ending 3 tracks leave you wanting more. I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS ALBUM HIGHLY ENOUGH - Yes, I am a Jackson fan, but the live albums all have their own characters which I always appreciate, but none as much as this one.
