Live 1980/86 is a fascinating 22-track, double live LP comprising material recorded during four Joe Jackson tours including the 1980 Beat Crazy tour, the 1982-83 Night and Day Tour, the 1984 Body and Soul tour and the 1986 Big World tour. These knockout performances took place in Manchester, Utrecht, Sydney, Melbourne, Vancouver and Tokyo and capture Jackson at different phases of his songwriting career, each time using a new backing band. "...For me the live concert has always been the most real and vital communication between artist and audience: the moment of truth," explained Jackson. "Having said that, I've always hated live albums, mostly they sound like the original records, sped up a bit, with a lot of echo added. So when it came to compiling this one I applied two rules. Firstly, it would be a real live record; nothing would be re-recorded, overdubbed, or fixed. And secondly, it would be devoted to the reworkings of songs, the spontaneous moments, anything that made those concerts something different and apart from the records."
