Big World is a 1986 live album of original songs by Joe Jackson. The album was recorded in front of an invited audience at the Roundabout Theatre, East 17th Street in New York City on 23, 24 and 25 January 1986 (except “Man in the Street”, recorded during rehearsals on 22 January).
The songs are loosely linked by lyrics covering a general theme of post-World War II international relations and global travel. This is a three sided, digital, live, direct to two-track recording.
PHEW!! One of my all-time favourites.
