While Joan Armatrading was enjoying success in the States on A&M (where she debuted in 1974) she didn't sell enough recordings to justify a live album.

Steppin' Out is a live album by the British singer-songwriter Joan Armatrading. The album was a collaboration between Armatrading and singer-songwriter Pam Nestor, at the time the two were musical partners and wrote over a hundred songs together. Joan Armatrading sings lead vocals and plays piano and acoustic guitar and it was originally released in November 1972 by Cube Records. Armatrading later said, Pam and I worked very hard on the music, in the event, none of the songs featuring Pam Nestor playing or singing were chosen for the album, as Cube wanted to promote Joan Armatrading as a solo artist.
Joan Armatrading was born in 1950 in Basseterre on the Caribbean island of Saint Kitts as the third of six children. Her father was a carpenter and her mother was a housewife. When she was three years old, her parents moved with their two eldest boys to Birmingham, England, while Joan was sent to live with her grandmother on the Caribbean island of Antigua. The album peaked at number 12 and was certified Gold by the British Phonographic Industry. Armatrading's 1979 live album Steppin' Out contained two songs from this album, "Love and Affection" and "Tall in the Saddle". The album's producer, Glyn Johns, later said it was the best album he'd ever been associated with.
