"One of the finest talents I have ever had the good fortune to work with …" — Producer Glyn Johns
Intervention Records is thrilled to introduce another classic record in its (Re)Discover Series, Joan Armatrading. Produced and recorded by legend Glyn Johns, Joan Armatrading is the breakout record that saw Joan assume full command of her extraordinary talents and leap to the forefront of rock's greatest female stars. A soulful, soaring voice and a powerful and evocative songwriter, her smash hits include "Love and Affection," "Down To Zero," and "Somebody Who Loves You."
Joan Armatrading's 180-gram LP is 100% analog mastered by Kevin Gray at CoHEARent Audio from the best source available — phenomenal-sounding 1/2" safety copy of the original stereo master tape. The remastering is amazing! Thanks to Glyn Johns' recording and production work, Joan's vocals and guitar playing have never sounded so rich, resonant and dynamic. This is an audiophile demo disc all the way, with depth, realism and a breathing dimensionality.
The album art is beautifully restored by IR's Tom Vadakan and housed in a film-laminated, Old Style "Tip-On" single-gatefold jacket printed by Stoughton Printing.
