"Kevin Gray’s fresh mastering has more of everything. Those Ovation guitars have more texture; Armatrading’s and the backup singers' vocals are more completely fleshed out; already impressive dynamics have an even greater impact; and every instrument is presented in a more tangible, three-dimensional space." (September 4, 2020)

- Dennis Davis

"One of the finest talents I have ever had the good fortune to work with ..." -Producer Glyn Johns

"... her voice is ageless, her powers are undiminished." -The Guardian

Intervention Records is absolutely thrilled to introduce another classic record in its (Re)Discover Series, Joan Armatrading.

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 180-gram LP is 100% Analog Mastered by Kevin Gray at CoHEARent Audio from the best source available- 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.

Beginning in December 2022, Joan Armatrading is pressed at Gotta Groove Records in Cleveland, OH. In addition to having a FIRM production schedule and shipping dates that we can absolutely rely on, GGR is the only plant we’ve found that we believe can meet or exceed our stringent quality standards. GGR replaces its 180G stampers every 500 records just how we like, and Matt Earley and his team press beautiful records with an AMAZINGLY low noise floor!

The album art is beautifully restored by IR’s Tom Vadakan and housed in a film-laminated, Old Style “Tip-On” single-gatefold jacket printed by Stoughton.
