Between 1978 and 1980 the original four members of the Joe Jackson band recorded three albums ranking among the finest of the new wave era. Subsequently, Jackson dabbled in everything from swing to classical, never quite recapturing the fire of those early records.

For the 25th anniversary of Look Sharp!’s recording, Jackson looked up his three old cohorts and worked up a batch of new songs in the old guitar-bass-drums format. A tour and this record are the result, and it’s a pleasure to see musical journeyman Jackson back on his old patch once again.
