I must be close to a week since I woke up thinking about Joe Jackson's Blaze of Glory. He went out in a blaze of glory... I went back to sleep and the next time I woke up I was thinking of it again. And repeat. I woke up at least 3 times that day thinking about it before I stayed out of bed. The next few days I was thinking of it again, but I didn't listen to it until now. The album had 3 singles, the title track, Nineteen Forever, and Down to London.

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.
It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.

After I posted all those Joe Jackson videos the other day and listened to the whole album, I listened to Joe Jackson's Jumpin' Jive album all the way through too. Here's what Wikipedia says about it. Joe Jackson's Jumpin' Jive is the fourth studio album by Joe Jackson. Released in 1981, it is a collection of covers of classic 1940s swing and jump blues songs originally performed by musicians such as Louis Jordan and Cab Calloway, the latter of whose song "Jumpin' Jive" was the eponym for this album. The album and single were credited to Joe Jackson's Jumpin' Jive. Jackson's foray through jump blues anticipated the so-called "retro-swing revival" (Squirrel Nut Zippers, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Brian Setzer Orchestra) by a full fifteen years. A remastered edition was released in late 1998.

It hit 42 on the US Billboard 200 and much better elsewhere, 12 on New Zealand Albums (RMNZ), 14 on UK Albums (OCC), and 29 in Australia (Kent Music Report). I haven't listened to all of the original songs yet, just some of them. I had the CD but my ex took it. Her mother liked it too and I don't know who has it now.

I posted Joe Jackson's Big World before, and wanted to play it for a friend when I was up north last weekend to show that not all bands suck live, but my CD is messed up. Big World is a 1986 live album of original songs by Joe Jackson. The album was recorded in front of an invited audience at the Roundabout Theatre, East 17th Street in New York City on 23, 24 and 25 January 1986 (except "Man in the Street", recorded during rehearsals on 22 January). The songs are loosely linked by lyrics covering a general theme of post-World War II international relations and global travel.

Jackson's intent for the recording was to capture the intensity and spontaneity of a live performance, but without the distraction of noise from the crowd. He requested that the audience remain silent while the performances of his band were recorded.

Unlike most other pop music recordings, which use multitrack recording techniques, no post-recording mixing or overdubbing was performed on the album. The music was mixed live from microphones on each musical instrument, then sent directly to a two track stereo digital tape recorder.

Regarding the album, Joe says: ‘I want to clear up two myths about this record which still crop up all the time. Myth 1: During the live recording of the album, the audience was forbidden to applaud. Fact: There was plenty of applause. We were just playing a lot of unfamiliar material, and recording it for an album, so the audience were asked to hold it until they were sure a song was finished. They understood this and there was no problem. Myth 2: It’s a double album with a side missing. Fact: This was my first album to be released on CD, where the running time was not an issue. I was having a hard time deciding what to leave out for the LP, though, and I suggested making a 3-sided one, and selling it for the price of a regular album. Much to my surprise, the record company said yes. So rather than a side missing, you got an extra side. Critics, of course, hadn’t had to pay for it.’

The LP release was a double album, but only three sides had music. The fourth side label stated "there is no music on this side", and the record had a groove that quickly led to the inner to prevent stylus damage. The CD release contained the same 15 tracks on one disc.

The front cover of the album (work by Serge Clerc) features the phrase "Big World" in French, Persian, Mandarin Chinese, Greek, Dutch, Korean, Thai, Russian, Irish Gaelic, Armenian, Hindi, English, Hebrew, Indonesian, Arabic, and Polish. The back cover features the same phrase in Vietnamese, Swedish, Swiss German, Turkish, Spanish, Swahili, Italian, Danish, Finnish, Welsh, and Hungarian.

The album included an eight-page booklet which included the lyrics to all fifteen songs and recording information in English, German, Japanese, French, Italian and Spanish.

The original South African LP release featured all 15 songs on one disc. Don't ask me how they fit 3 album sides on one LP.

Artist Serge Clerc is a French comic book artist and illustrator. He began his professional career in 1975 in the monthly magazine Métal Hurlant, after having created his own fanzine, Absolutely Live. Métal hurlant, literal translation: "Howling Metal," is a French comics anthology of science fiction and horror comics stories. Content from Metal Hurlant was republished in English in the United States by National Lampoon under the title Heavy Metal.

The enclosed images are from my CD liner notes. The 5 singles from the album were Right and Wrong, Home Town, The Jet Set, Tango Atlantico, and Wild West. Right and Wrong and Home Town were the best of them IMO. While not his best music it's still probably one of the most technically perfect live albums ever recorded. What you hear is what the audience heard.

Since some of us are missing Mr. Buffett I would like to add this song to the list here.
