Steppin' Out: The Very Best of Joe Jackson

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Borrowing equally from Tin Pan Alley and the punk revolution, Grammy winner Joe Jackson launched a successful career with early hits such as "Is She Really Going Out with Him?," "Look Sharp!," and "It's Different for Girls."

This package also features more recent fare such as "Obvious Song" and "Stranger than Fiction" as well as a couple of rarities: the B-side "Enough Is Not Enough" and Jackson's take on Jimmy Cliff's "The Harder They Come."

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Spanning two discs and 38 songs, A&M's 2001 release Steppin' Out: The Very Best of Joe Jackson provides about as complete an overview of Joe Jackson's prime years as most listeners could want. Sure, this will not have everything that a hardcore fan loves, but it will have everything that a serious fan, who doesn't want to buy actual albums, needs: all the hits, plus most of the significant album tracks. For a while, Jackson was one of the most vital singer/songwriters around, testing his limits with each album and writing fine songs along the way. This album collects them all, proving that he was a formidable talent at the peak of his powers.
