Joe Jackson: Greatest Hits

Genre: Reissues; Lead Performer: Joe Jackson; Producer (group): A&M

This somewhat overly evenhanded compilation (like a musical all-star team, there’s at least one song from each of his albums) tries to balance Joe Jackson’s first — and best — discs, Look Sharp and I’m the Man, with his later excursions into jump blues, lounge jazz, and R&B. Intended to showcase his eclecticism and range, Greatest Hits instead reveals Jackson as a dilettantish ersatz Sting. B-
