Intervention Records is thrilled to bring Joe Jackson's Summer in the City Live in New York to vinyl for the very first time! Previously available only on CD, Summer in the City joins IR's wildly successful vinyl reissues of Jackson's early New Wave classics Look Sharp!, I'm the Man and Night and Day. Naturally, Summer in the Citywill street on vinyl in the summer of 2017, in August.

Summer in the City's repertoire is an amazing bridge that spans the greatest hits of Jackson's early canon with stunning new arrangements and covers from other great songwriters. Jackson classics like "Fools in Love," "You Can't Get What You Want" and "It's Different for Girls" meet with covers as diverse as Duke Ellington's "Mood Indigo," The Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby" and Steely Dan's "King of the World."   

Summer in the City was mastered to vinyl by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from brand-new high-res master files. Summer in the City was recorded live in New York City in August of 1999 by Steve Remote and Co-Producer Sheldon Steiger. Sony's archivists and Battery Studios' Mike Piacentini compiled new high-res digital master files from the original DATs with the final mixes, and IR consulted with Remote and Steiger on key aspects of the recording to ensure the best possible source files were used. The result is an absolute sonic stunner, brought to new life on this double LP set! 

Summer in the City's original album art has been rebuilt into a beautiful gatefold jacket by IR's art director Tom Vadakan.
