Intervention Records is thrilled to announce 100% analog vinyl reissues of Joe Jackson's 1979 New Wave classics Look Sharp! and I'm the Man. These two monumental new releases are the latest LPs to comprise IR’s ongoing “(Re)Discover Series.”
Both titles were mastered 100% analog by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from the best sources available- phenomenal sounding 1/2" safety copies of the original stereo master tapes. All of the top-end energy and “snap” of the original UK LPs is preserved, while the bass foundation is fully restored to make these new Intervention reissues the definitive listening experience for these classic LPs.
I’m the Man will be a single-pocket “old style” gatefold with the original inner sleeve restored as the gatefold interior. Look Sharp! will be a spectacular “old style” single jacket in a “debossed” rough matte finish that beautifully reproduces the very first original A&M UK pressing.â€‹
Look Sharp! and I'm The Man will be available in Q1 of 2016. Each will be single 33s and will retail for $35. Available for preorder now at Elusive Disc, Acoustic Sounds, Music Direct and SoundStage Direct.
Look Sharp! and I'm the Man:
• 100% Analog Mastering From Real Analog Tapes!
• Mastered by Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio
• Dead Quiet 180-Gram Vinyl Pressed At RTI
• Exquisitely Restored Cover Art Printed By Stoughton
