It was in 1983 that Howard Jones first burst upon the contemporary music scene and brought his very English song-writing and pioneering synthesizers to an unsuspecting world. Anyone who was around in the mid to late eighties will remember those high energy gigs and his first two albums Human’s Lib and Dream into Action. They lived in the higher reaches of the album charts in the UK, USA, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Canada, Australia and many other countries in the 1984-86 period and the hits kept coming……..”New Song”, “What is Love?”, “Pearl in the Shell”, “Hide and Seek” (which he performed at Live Aid in 1985), “Like to Get to Know You Well”, “Look Mama”, “Things Can only Get Better”, “Everlasting Love” and the quintessential “No One is To Blame”, which reached No.1 in the US.
Now Howard Jones has re-mastered those first two classic albums Human’s Lib and Dream into Action and played them both live in their entirety for the first time on November 6th 2010 at the IndigO2 in London’s O2 Arena Complex. This two-album show is being repeated throughout 2011 and 2012 at selected venues. The re-mastered albums are available from www.howardjones.com. A special re-mastered box set of the 12” mixes was released in March 2011 and a DVD of the IndigO2 concert will be available soon.
