Since I brought up Joe Jackson yesterday, here’s a cut from a cool record of covers he once did:
Beat of the Day
what's the use of getting sober?
one of my very favorite albums ever ever! couldn't let this wonderful post go without a comment! : )
i've got this album cover framed and on the living wall. next to Eric Dolphy's 'Out To Lunch'.
JJ was well ahead of his time. brian setzer and royal crown revue (and others) did very well when they released their 'swing' records. JJ's Jumpin' Jive wins. hands down and easily!
there were some bonus tracks that weren't released on the regular album - either just performed live or as the b-side of a 7" (45rpm). yup, i have 'em all - singles, live audio, live video...
i'm a HUGE joe jackson collector!!! : )
as a nice tie in to yesterday's JJ post.
mike's murder was a soundtrack... 1983
jumpin' jive was a collection of 'swing' tunes... 1981
in 1988, Joe combined both in the film score for "Tucker: A Man And His Dream" there's some good stuff on there. "(He's A) Shape In A Drape" was the single from his penultimate release on A&M Records.
