Great stuff, thanks for sharing, if the rest of the album's as good as the taster track, then it'll be a treat.
Joe Jackson's one of those artists whose catalogue I'm discovering on a "better late than never" / "where have I been ?" basis (another one being Ian McNabb).
Currently loving his 1989 album "Blaze Of Glory".

I'm definitely in for the album. Shame the tour isn't a bit more extensive in the UK.

Used to Love Joe Jackson as a kid. But lost track in the late 80's when he went a bit too arty and serious for me. If its back to late 70's early 80's JJ then I am happy Smiley

'Happy Ending' is an absolute all time favourite of mine, in any genre. Probably a Desert Island Disk if I was ever famous!


That would be a good topic - everyone's 8 Desert Island disks Smiley !

His last three or four song based albums have all been catchy pop gems (Fast Forward, Rain, Volume 4), including one with the original Joe Jackson Band and Night & Day II is a thing of beauty.

Good to see Joe is touring again but disappointed there is no hometown gig on this one.

I liked his old stuff & he was excellent when I saw him with a band (including a Japanese percussionist) in the late 1990s but very disappointing when I saw him solo a few years later. I must admit I haven't heard any of his recent albums, all I've heard of him is the odd letter to the press protesting against smoking bans.

Not keen on London concerts these days, so I won't be seeing him this time. Not sure if he's got enough appeal these days to sell out the Palladium.
