    A practically perfect program from the tail-end of Joe’s best period IMO, the mid to late-80′s on the ‘Work In Progress’ show. Not sure if there’s a true unifying theme, but I like to think that all of the disparate stories are the memories and visions of the hobo character that opens the set. Joe surveys the Reagan-era U.S. from various viewpoints, from the itinerant homeless to the conspicuously wealthy, from anarchists and saboteurs to middle-class mad men. He evokes wintry nightscapes, surreal holiday scenes, and the impossibly luxurious and trendy Los Angeles of the super-rich. The sound design, with a soundtrack that ranges from schmaltzy smooth jazz to atmospheric drones, is incredible. One to listen to again and again.
