Tucker : the man and his dream by Jeff Bridges( Visual )

11 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"1948. Preston Tucker est un brillant ingénieur automobile. Visionnaire dans sa partie, il a conçu un véhicule révolutionnaire. Mais les "Trois Grands" de Detroit, Ford, General Motors et Chrysler, se sentent remis en cause par ce self-made man qui bénéficie pourtant du soutien d'un certain Howard Hughes. Ils vont tout tenter pour l'empêcher de réaliser ses projets. Au cours d'un retentissant procès, Preston Tucker va démontrer qu'en l'empêchant de construire ses voitures, c'est le rêve américain que l'on détruit..."
Summer in the city : Live in New York by Joe Jackson( Recording )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Singer-songwriter Joe Jackson may have ridden the contentious nerve of late-1970s new wave to his first chart triumphs, but he quickly proved he was no slave to fashion. Even earlier than Elvis Costello, Jackson utilized his commercial clout to explore a diverse, idiosyncratic musical palette that ranged from swing through reggae, Tin Pan Alley, and classical. Having seemingly forsaken pop songs altogether in the '90s for larger classically themed set pieces, this live recording of Jackson performing songs in peak form with a stripped-down trio (including Graham Maby on bass and drummer Gary Burke) should come as something of a pleasant surprise for Jackson fans. Imbued with a healthy dose of the singer's trademark musical utopianism, the set list is characterized by smart renditions of vintage, if not overexposed Jackson catalog gems, several of which are interpolated in medleys with a generous sampling of cover songs that are often as surprising as they are insightful. Paired with the Yardbirds' moody "For Your Love," "Fools in Love" becomes a bluesy dirge, while Steely Dan's "King of the World" neatly bookends Jackson's "You Can't Get What You Want" both musically and thematically. It's also a record that should smartly segue into Jackson's anticipated sequel to his biggest (and best) pop/jazz fusion success, Night and Day . --Jerry McCulley

Rain by Joe Jackson( Visual )

19 editions published in 2008 in 3 languages and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rain" er den britiske rockeartisten Joe Jacksons første album på fem år. Albumet er et klassisk poprock-album, med piano, bass, trommer og med Joe Jacksons umiskjennelige sangstemme. Joe Jackson er en sofistikert musiker med bakgrunn i rockeopprøret i England på slutten av 1970-tallet, og som i likhet med artister som Elvis Costello og Graham Parker bød på et melodiøst og avansert motstykke til den mer upolerte punken. Jackson gjenforenes på dette albumet med Graham Maby på bass og Dave Houghton på trommer, begge musikere Jackson spilte sammen med for snart 30 år siden
