Joan Armatrading

Excellent vinyl, very nice clean cover.

Joan Armatrading is the third studio album from the British singer-songwriter Joan Armatrading and her second for A&M Records. It was her first album to be recorded entirely in London, as her first two albums - Whatever's for Us and Back to the Night being partially recorded in France and Wales respectively in addition to London.

Released in 1976, it included Armatrading's sole Top 10 hit single, "Love and Affection". The album peaked at number 12 and was certified Gold by the British Phonographic Industry.

Armatrading's 1979 live album Steppin' Out contained two songs from this album, "Love and Affection" and "Tall in the Saddle". She is pictured on the cover of the album playing an Ovation Guitar.

The album's producer, Glyn Johns, later said it was the best album he'd ever been associated with.[2]
