Sleight of Hand is an album by the British singer-songwriter Joan Armatrading. It was her tenth studio album and was recorded and produced by Armatrading at Bumpkin Studio, her own purpose built studio in the grounds of her home. The album was released on 12 May 1986 by A&M Records. Armatrading began work on the album in November 1985, following the release of her ninth studio album Secret Secrets in February of that year.
Joan Armatrading took matters into her own hands after the commercially disappointing Secret Secrets, producing and playing nearly all the guitars (acoustic and electric) on Sleight of Hand. It's not a demonstrably better record for it, although Armatrading's uncluttered production (with the aid of Steve Lillywhite, who mixed the record) is in many ways preferable to Secret Secrets' surfeit of sweetness. The album begins with two of Armatrading's most dance-oriented tracks, the Prince-ly "Kind Words (And a Real Good Heart)" and "Killing Time
Each album I get, Sleight of Hand being one I just picked up, gives me yet another facet of Joan's tremendous creativity. If you want to hear some stellar Armatrading electric guitar work, this is a must have album of hers
