The Edison is the oldest music award in the Netherlands. Since 1960 these awards are presented in the pop, classical and jazz genres for albums of exceptional quality.
An Edison Award went to Joe Jackson
in 1983 for "Night And Day" (in the "Singer/Songwriter" category)
in 1980 for "I'm The Man" (in the "Pop" category)
In January 2016, Joe was among seven recipients of this award, presented by the Berlin newspaper B.Z. The award honours "outstanding persons who have contributed through their work to Berlin's cultural and artistic diversity."
