Released: Jan 1976
With guest appearances from members of the Faces and Fairport Convention, and a set of tunes about weathering the storms of bad love, Joan Armatrading's third, eponymous album has real swagger. Released in 1976, the record was Armatrading's biggest critical and popular hit, putting her on the map with an international audience and achieving respectable chart success in the U.K. Wah-wah guitar and unapologetic backbeats help make up-tempo tunes like "Water With the Wine" and "Join the Boys" funky and confident, but the most memorable stuff is in affecting, artful ballads like "Save Me."
