"Recorded live at a small venue in Manhattan, you will not hear an audience because they were asked to remain quiet. A friend who attended the show said aside from a few false starts, what you hear is what he heard, no remixing. Not many artists write with such feeling and perform with such emotion. Bare bones and raw, this is Joe Jackson at his best...which is truly an achievement. Buy this CD and you will find the songs to be infectuous. This "album" stayed on my turntable for months. Unfortunately, the record company did not do a good job of promotion and the record withered. I have never written a review before this, but feel compelled to as this collection should not go un-noticed."

"This is one album that is a must for every J.J.fan however, non regular fans will love it also. J.J. uses a great three piece backing band to deliver a tremendously rounded performance. If the album has a live feel to it read the liner notes to find out the unique way it was recorded to give it this sound. The songs are flat out awesome, and are delivered with great passion. Pay particular attention to the last two songs "Man in the Street" and "Hometown", which are aabsolutely stellar. J.J. uses so many different styles and textures on this disc that one cannot help but wonder why this brilliant artist is so easily overlooked. Buy this disc, have a good listen and you too will be hooked!"
You just won't believe how good this is.

"For those who don't know... This album was recorded live in two nights, though it is not a "concert" album. The audience was asked to remain quiet during the performance, which was captured direct to two-track. What you hear in this amazing collection of songs is really Joe Jackson, really the band, with no fancy tweaking in the studio after the fact. For those who thought musicianship was dead...it ain't!Besides the technical accomplishment, these are brilliant and beautiful songs, smart songs covering a range of subjects and emotions. Buy this one, truly. You'll thank yourself."
