Sunday Papers

Joe-Jackson3

Joe Jackson

Joe Jackson was a real oddity at the time, he was a classically trained musician who won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music.  His true love was jazz and classical so to suddenly become a pop star was strange.  Joe said that his album Look Sharp ”positively reeks of London 1978 -1979.”  I guess that is really what it was all about, a guy who just made some incredible songs at a time when people wanted to hear them.

I never really saw any of the Joe Jackson video’s at the time so this live clip of ‘Sunday Papers’ is great to see.  He was only 23 when he released Look Sharp but as this clip shows he had something about him when he was on stage.
