There are so many vinyl reissues being introduced in 2021 that it’s almost impossible to keep track of them all. Craft Recordings have been knocking them out of the park lately with some classic CCR records but we’re getting in line early for this 80’s classic album from Joe Jackson. If you’re old enough to remember Night and Day, you definitely need to add this to your Joe Jackson discography.
Body and Soul is Joe Jackson’s jazz-infused follow-up to his 1982 smash Night and Day. It features two of Joe’s most cherished compositions, “You Can’t Get What You Want (Till You Know What You Want)” and “Be My Number Two.”
Body and Soul is a landmark recording as well, an early digital recording captured on a 32-track 3M system in New York City’s Masonic Lodge.
Body and Soul’s original PCM digital files are remastered to DSD by Kevin Gray at CoHEARent Audio and cut to double 45 RPM vinyl for maximum dynamics and fidelity. The results are said to be amazing, claiming that Body and Soul has never sounded so big and full-bodied.
The reverberant space of the hall is beautifully drawn, and more three-dimensional and holographic than ever, and the band more dynamically explosive. The Blue-Note-inspired album art is beautifully restored by IR’s Tom Vadakan and housed in a gorgeous “Old Style” gatefold by Stoughton Printing.
Front and back cover are film-laminated for beauty and longevity, and gorgeous gatefold art is wrapped on heavy “brown-in” blanks like the records of the 1950’s, 60’s and early 70’s.
Price for the 45 RPM x 2 180G LP is $45, on-sale date is December, 2021.
