Amazing Repertoire Featuring Joe's Classics & Riveting Covers!

Intervention Records is thrilled to bring Joe Jackson's "Summer in the City" Live in New York to hybrid CD/SACD! This CD/SACD release follows Intervention's widely successful first-ever vinyl release of this title in 2017, and vinyl fans be aware that "Summer in the City" is returning to 180g vinyl in early 2023, pressed at Gotta Groove Records on flat, ultra-quiet vinyl!

"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 of 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 remastered to vinyl and simultaneously to DSD by Kevin Gray at CoHEARent Audio from newly-compiled 24-bit/44kHz high-res PCM master files. This new mastering is wide-open and uncompressed, and DRAMATICALLY more dynamic and immersive than the original CD!

"Summer in the City" was originally 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, a thoroughly immersive trip back in time to that August night in New York, brought to vibrant new life on vinyl and this AMAZING CD/SACD!

The Lost 90's Series

A prime directive at IR is bringing music from the dark days of the 1990s CD era to glorious new life on premium vinyl. So much fantastic music from this era either never saw a vinyl release, or saw only a very limited and all too often low-quality release ripped from CDs without much care. During that era even if the original capture was analog the music was ripped to digital and loaded into workstations for final editing, mixing, sequencing and final assembly. If vinyl was released during this era it is more than likely sourced from CD files. For releases that were never assembled in analog or were fully-digital recordings, IR acquires and masters from the best source files available, and if needed assembles final mixes, cross-fades, etc. during mastering. The increase in musicality and purity is as exponential! Combining superior master sources with the truly full-range mastering chain at CoHEARent Audio and RTI's ultra-quiet vinyl pressing results in hearing the music that is the soundtrack to our lives like never before!
