Planted right in the middle of this under-rated album is the true gem of this collection - "We Can't Live Together". The top notch band Jackson has assembled here makes each song really stand out on its own.

Underrated and under appreciated Joe Jackson is a marvel of skill, diversity and musicianship.

This album was recorded live in front of an audience and made direct to two-track digital master - so no overdubbing or mixing afterwards. The audience was asked to to be as quiet as possible and to hold applause until songs were absolutely finished.
Quite an outstanding project.
