Steppin’ Out is the first live album by British folk singer songwriter Joan Armatrading.
It has been re-branded Performance Classics: Steppin’ Out Live.
It was released in 1979.

I think it is sad that this album hasn’t been extended with bonus tracks as it is very short by modern standards.

What Other People Say
The AllMusicGuide website gave it 3.5 stars out of 5. I find that their reviewers often under-mark live albums.
