JOE JACKSON ... " Big World " .... AM Records SP-6021. 1986 New Wave / Punk Rock LP. Stereo. Vinyl VG+. Cover VG+. Famous three-sided album.Joe Jackson (born David Ian Jackson, 11 August 1954, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire) is an English musician and singer-songwriter, whose five Grammy Award nominations span from 1979 to 2001. He is probably best known for the 1979 hit song and first single "Is She Really Going Out with Him", which still gets extensive US FM radio airplay; for his 1982 hit, "Steppin' Out"; and for his 1984 success with "You Can't Get What You Want (Till You Know What You Want)". He was popular for his pop/rock and new wave music early on before moving to more eclectic, though less commercially successful, pop/jazz/classical hybrids. __Big World is a 1986 live album of original songs by Joe Jackson. ] The album was recorded in front of an invited audience at the Roundabout Theatre in New York City on 22 "25 January 1986. Jackson's intent was to capture the excitement and spontaneity of a live performance, but without any noise from the crowd. The audience remained silent during the recording as per Jackson's request, so we do not hear any applause. In the manner of a remote broadcast, the music was mixed live from microphones on each musical instrument and sent directly to a stereo digital tape recorder. Unlike most remote recordings, no post-recording mixing or overdubbing was performed. The LP release was a double album, but only three sides had music. The unrecorded fourth side's label proclaims "there is no music on this side", and the record had a groove that quickly led to the inner so no damage could be done to the stylus if you accidentally placed that side on the turntable. The front cover of the album features the phrase "Big World" in French, Persian, Mandarin Chinese, Greek, Dutch, Korean, Thai, Russian, Irish Gaelic, Armenian, Hindi, Hebrew, Bahasa Indonesia, Arabic and Polish. The back cover features the same phrase in Vietnamese, Swedish, Swiss German, Turkish, Spanish, Swahili, Italian, Danish, Finnish, Welsh and Hungarian. The album included an eight-page booklet which included the lyrics to all fifteen songs and recording information in English, German, Japanese, French, Italian and Spanish.

I use GOLDMINE: STANDARD CATALOG OF AMERICAN RECORDS for grading guidelines. Therefore, NM (Near Mint) will not be seen unless the album is still in original shrinkwrap. Most all of the albums and covers I sell will be VERY GOOD + (or) VERY GOOD. Here are Goldmine's defintions of those two classifications. Verbatim in part. VG+ VINYL > may show some slight sign of wear, including light scuffs or very light scratches that do not affect the listening experience. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are okay. Minor signs of handling are okay, too, such as telltale marks around the center hole. There may be some very light ring wear or discoloration, but it should be barely noticeable. VG+ COVERS > are close to their near mint counterparts. Only close. A cover may be marred by a cutout marking (cut corner, small hole punch, a cut in the spine) or promotional stamp. There may be some slight signs of handling, such as light creasing in the corners. There may be slight signs of wear at the most vulnerable areas, even a bit of ring wear. But all in all, except for a few minor imperfections, this should be a very nice copy. VG VINYL > have more obvious flaws. They may lack some of the original factory gloss. Groove wear may be evident, as well as light scratches. When played, a VG record will porbably have some surface noise, especially at the beginning of a song and at the end. But the noise will not overpower the music. You may run into an audible surface scratch, but will not be a major detraction from the music. Minor writing, tape, or a sticker may detract from the label. But overall, the record will still remain a fine listening experience, just not the same as if the record was in better condition. VG COVERS > have more signs of wear, such as minot seam splits, most common at the bottom center, middle of the spine, and the upper and lower right where the record is removed from the cover. These will not be overwhelming, and can be neatly repaired. Also, minor writing, tape, or stickers may detract from the cover. Visible ringwear will be more evident. There could be minor scuffing or cut out markings.Though a VG cover will still be pleasing to the eye, there's no way it could pass as new. FAIR or POOR vinyl I usually throw away, unless it's rare. FAIR or POOR covers may sometimes be sold, but only if the vinyl is still very good, and the album itself is considered collectable. I usually price this kind of quality very low. ************Please, don't hesitate to ask questions if you have any. It is NOT an inconvenience to me. Talking about records has always been fun to me.
