Joe Jackson Look Sharp! 180g Vinyl LP 

Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio

By 1978 musical journeyman Joe Jackson was living in London and hawking an album-length demo, with his own band (Graham Maby, bass; Dave Houghton, drums; Gary Sanford, guitar) standing by. That demo - already called Look Sharp! - eventually found its way to American producer David Kershenbaum, who was in London in the capacity of talent scout for A&M Records. Joe was immediately signed and Look Sharp! was more professionally re-recorded in August '78. The Joe Jackson Band finally started to play regular gigs and the album was officially released in January 1979.

Home to the definitive hit single "Is She Really Going Out With Him" plus further standout fare like "Sunday Papers" and "One More Time," the auspicious Look Sharp! vaulted Jackson into the new wave pop arena with the likes of Elvis Costello and Graham Parker and happens to have one of the greatest album covers of all time to boot!
