The album is a great recording of her early songs!
I experience extreme sibilant distortion on B5. Contacted IR and was advised that there is no pressing issue but a system issue. Tried a couple of recommended tweaks but no improvement. I also have the IR SACD version that I can play on my Oppo BDP95 part of the same system as turntable and there is no sibilance on that track. Problem must be with the turntable/cartridge
even though I have not experienced sibilant distortion on any other vinyl LP in my collection.

Fantastic reissue. Pressing is great: quiet and lots of dynamics. Highly recommended!

As has always been, this is a fabulous audiophile favorite. Perhaps this reissue is even the best version yet so keep this in mind while I give a rather nitpicking review.
Theres an outstanding balance to the sound having a nice bass and airy highs with the ever present mid range vocals. I personally find the mix to be underutilizing the Stereo a bit but thats just how it is.
I always trust Kevins work but the tape copy factor could be an insurmoutable handicap against earlier versions. Currently I only have this but I would like to someday find out if other cuts also exhibit a little sibilance at times as well as a light distortion in Save Me. Ive done some work to figure out what this may be but so far all 3 copies Ive heard on different systems have the same issues and given the high end Styli used this is surely something on the metalwork and tape most likely. It is not overly glaring as some will surely not notice anything until its pointed out. I myself never noticed the drop in level halfway through Tall in the Saddle on my own either.
What is almost always near flawless is RTIs pressings and Stoughtons jackets however. In this area you will find it hard to be beat.

Talking about the best songs occurs the question How Do You Find This Brilliant Song? Simply the best! Only listening! When the song Water With The Wine is playing, what can be better!

Intervention hits another homerun with Joan Armatrading.
Granted I have only heard these tracks from compilations (both vinyl & CD), but I can attest that this vinyl reissue smokes them. This cut has wonderful air and sound stage. Very realistic presentation.

Awesome sounding pressing. Intervention is such a great label! I now have 7 of their pressings and they all sound fantastic.

This pressing is what my setup has been looking for - beautifully recorded, mastered and delivered with a breathtaking musicality (to my ears at least) - truly fab

The first four songs on Side 1 reach as high a level as any pop/rock female vocalist I know of. Very cool out of phase effects on "love and affection" helps give it a hushed edge that everyone seems to react too.
