Intervention - IR-018 - Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio
1st time on Vinyl - 180 Gram Virgin Vinyl
Pressed at RTI - Restored Cover Art - Limited Edition
Sonically speaking, all the world is here, and I recently did an entire analog-setup seminar at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest based on a single side of this album. But what makes it special is the way in which those stellar sonics support a stunningly good set. Jackson has always been a great live performer, and these records showcase him at the top of his game. 5/5 The Audio Beat

Amazing repertoire featuring Joe Jackson's classic hits and riveting covers!
Intervention Records is thrilled to bring Joe Jackson's Summer in the City Live in New York to vinyl for the very first time! Previously available only on CD, Summer in the City joins IR's wildly successful vinyl reissues of Jackson's early New Wave classics Look Sharp!, I'm the Man and Night and Day. Naturally, Summer in the City will release on vinyl in the summer of 2017, in August.
Summer in the City's repertoire is an amazing bridge that spans the greatest hits of Jackson's early canon with stunning new arrangements and covers of other great songwriters. Jackson classics like "Fools in Love," "You Can't Get What You Want" and "It's Different for Girls" meet with covers as diverse as Duke Ellington's "Mood Indigo," The Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby" and Steely Dan's "King of the World."
Summer in the City was mastered to vinyl by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio from brand-new high-res master files. Summer in the City was recorded live in New York City in August of 1999 by Steve Remote and Co-Producer Sheldon Steiger. Sony's archivists and Battery Studios' Mike Piacentini compiled new high-res digital master files from the original DATs with the final mixes, and IR consulted with Remote and Steiger on key aspects of the recording to ensure the best possible source files were used. The result is an absolute sonic stunner, brought to new life on this double LP set!
