The 3-sided album structure of Big World makes tremendous musical sense. It isn't just that a three-part structure Count The Time - Terra Tenebrae - Subconscious classical.
It's the fast - slow - fast three-part structure that is so common in classical music, but was rare to non-existent in pop music albums due to the tyranny of the double-sided LP. One of the great things about the CD was the ability to do different forms on an album without it seeming so weird. Location: City of Angels. Location: The Grove of Eglantine. StyxCollectorSep 29, I agree that three sided albums can be more powerful with less filler. Johnny Winter's Second Winter comes to mind.
And they later fit so nicely on CDs. Same for 55 min. LPs that were not pressed on three sides like some of those older Todd Rundgren albums. They were made for the CD format. Very nice sound once you jack up the bass a bit. Location: Avon, Indiana. One has CD on the disc, which has a gold colored globe design silk screened on it. The other disc shows CD with CD in parenthesis. I don't have a program to check them LaserKenSep 29, I'm listening to Joe Jackson's 'Big World' for the first time tonight I must say, I'm impressed!

PhilBikerNov 22, One of Joe's better albums. Location: Santa Rosa, California. One of his best. Listened to it recently. Also a truly high fidelity recording. The LP sounds phenomenal. I think it's the only 3 sided LP in my collection! Location: Manhasset, New York. Location: Pittsburgh, PA. Jay FNov 22, Location: ohio. I absolutely LOVE this album. I didn't get it immediately upon release, as I wasn't impressed with the single, "Home Town" when I first heard it.
But a few years later, literally two nights before I would go off to spend a year studying in Europe, I Survival - Joe Jackson - Live In Tokyo (Laserdisc across the cassette and thought it might be an appropriate soundtrack for my upcoming experience. And was it ever! The album blew me away almost immediately with tits quality and Survival - Joe Jackson - Live In Tokyo (Laserdisc intensity of the performances.
The lyrics perfectly encapsulated my state of mind at the time. Not long after, of course, I ended up getting JJ's entire back catalog, and he remains an "instant buy" for me whenever he puts out new material.
But this album, along with Night and Dayremains a pinnacle for me. NorthNY MarkNov 22, You must log in or sign up to reply here. Show Ignored Content. Share This Page. Your name or email address: Do you already have an account?
