Joan Armatrading's 1976 Self-Titled Classic On SACD!
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 great female stars. A soulful, soaring voice and a powerful and evocative songwriter. The smash hits include "Love And Affection", "Down To Zero" and "Somebody Who Loves You".
Joan Armatrading's CD/SACD is Mastered Direct-to-DSD by Kevin Gray at CoHEARent Audio from the best source available - a 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 super jewel box.
