Joe Jackson ‎– Big World

Genre:
Style:
Year:
Notes:
The whole album was recorded live direct to digital two-track at the Roundabout Theatre, New York City, 23, 24 and 25 Jan 1986 except "Man In The Street" recorded during rehearsals on 22 Jan 1986.

Preparations included a pre-mix test and extensive rehearsals, finally the audience was asked to be as silent as possible during the performance and only applaud after the song's finished so it could be easily edited out.

Night & Day along with Body & Soul are two of my favourite albums of all time. I never really got into Big World, I must give the LP a whirle soon!

If you don't own this one vinyl and want to know how a well produced album should sound--buy it used for under $10. Best purchase you'll ever make. Especially for the folk who are wanting to be a recording engineer or some other type of studio job.
