Intervention Records is absolutely thrilled to introduce another classic record in its (Re)Discover Series, Joan Armatrading on hybrid CD/SACD (Cat# IR-SCD5).

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 hybrid CD/SACD is mastered Direct-to-DSD from analog tape 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.

The album art is beautifully restored by IR’s Tom Vadakan and housed in a super jewel box.

“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
