Album Review

On the trio of albums that made her reputation in 1976-1978, Joan Armatrading, Show Some Emotion, and To the Limit, Armatrading relied on the pristine production of Glyn Johns to underscore the sensitivity of her folk-based confessional songs. Here, on her first full-length album in two years, she turned to rock producer Richard Gottehrer and a session band that included Anton Fig, Chris Spedding, and members of the E Street Band, making her case for being a mainstream rocker. The songs were less serious, too, notably the title track, a U.K. hit. (The album's other British chart single was the ballad "All the Way from America," which was more in the style of her earlier work.) The result was the best selling album Armatrading has ever had in either the U.S. or U.K.

Customer Reviews

Underrated classic

I'm the first person to write a review for this album – which in itself is a travesty. Thirty years on and you will still struggle to find a better and tighter band sound on any album. This is as a direct result of the awesome rhythm section – the incredible Anton Fig and a bassist who I do the injustice of not remembering his name. I learned to play the drums listening to this album. But here lies the true sadness – if ever an album needed remastering then it is this one. The original vinyl sounded SO much better than this pitiful copy of a pitiful CD copy. But don't be put off – buy it anyway, it's a masterclass in hitting the groove. The songs are great too, but it's the band, led by the equally underrated Chris Spedding, who really make this an essential classic.

Absolute classic album

Every track on this album is real quality.
