If like me, you have the Direction, Reaction, Creation box set, then you have all these tracks apart from the last two demos as far as I can tell from the track listing. I do not know if they have been remixed or remastered again for this release.
You can get Direction, Reaction, Creation used for about 50% more than the price of this box set which will give you every studio track The Jam made, then you can add Dig the new Breed and The Jam Live along with The Jam at the BBC to give you the live tracks (you will need the 3 disk version of Snap! for the last live EP to more or less complete their recordings apart from boots).
If you just want the best Jam album, then this is it.
It will never be as good as being 15 / 16 and buying the singles and albums as they came out though... sorry if you missed it.

By the time The Jam were hitting number one with ease, their most feted album seemed to be 'Setting Sons', while Paul Weller later said that his favourite was 'Sound Affects'. All of this ignored the album which really broke the band big when they appeared to be heading for oblivion. 'In The City', an all too often ignored punk debut contained a clue to what would make The Jam great: it was the track, 'Away From The Numbers', which revealed that Weller could craft stimulating pop. The 'Modern World' album all but squandered the band's initial success, but the band's cover of The Kinks' 'David Watts' put them back in the charts ahead of the release of 'All Mod Cons'.

This album contains several tracks with similar qualities to 'Away From The Numbers', notably 'To Be Someone' and 'In The Crowd'. Weller discovered he could convey his sense of outrage without resorting to all-out fury while writing some positive stuff too. 'All Mod Cons' certainly betrays the band's English influences, those of The Kinks, The Who and The Beatles, though the last-named only shows through occasionally. Weller apparently preferred The Beatles until he discovered the other two bands.

Having salvaged their reputation with one single, of course, they cemented it with the wholly original classic, 'Tube Station'. It showcases Bruce Foxton's bass skills as well as Weller's storytelling abilities, a soundtrack to the dark corners of urban Britain. Every track is a winner, even Weller's self-conscious acoustic love song, 'English Rose'. 'All Mod Cons' was one of the most unlikely successes of 1978. These days, it's all you would expect from them.

Anyone buying this album will probably know the music inside out, as is often the case with CD-issues of popular records from the vinyl era. Therefore the question for a reviewer trying to be helpful to others must be whether this version adds anything to what has previously been available, and if the sound quality is really an improvement.

First the sound. Since I own both the original UK vinyl pressing and the 1997 re-issue of this album, it is quite easy for me to compare. These things, of course, depend on personal tastes, but I do NOT find the sound is improved with this version. Compared to the 1997 release, it is harder and more polished sounding (and strangely, the stereo image appears to have moved very slightly to the right, though you will only notice that using headphones). If your system is a bit dull, however, or you've been at too many loud rock gigs in your life, you may find that this current disc sounds "clear and crisp", or whatever terms people use about CDs these days.

This Special Edition offers as extras a number of very interesting outtakes, demos and alt. versions. Personally, I prefer some of them to the album version, which had a few too many overdubs for my taste. Some of these tracks may also appear on the Jam Box Set (which I haven't got at the moment).

Finally there is a DVD with the three members of the Jam talking about the making of the album. It seems that the producers were unable to get them in the same room together, which is a bit sad to say the least. For musicians there is very little in the way of explaining and showing the techniques that were used in the studio, so instead we're given more-or-less the pretty well-known story behind this classic album.

Finally there is a small booklet with sleeve notes.

If you have got this far along the road to buying "All Mod Cons" & need reassuring by reading a review,I can only say,WELL DONE!!!
I mean it...
My excuse for owning this Jam album is that It was the soundtrack to my youth,& if youre contemplating owning it 27 years later,I would love to meet you & discuss the reasons why,
Whilst simultaniously making sure that all my close friends have a copy, because this album is class.
Listen to the following tunes... "It`s Too Bad, Fly, & English Rose" they are quite simply classics.
Tube Station is also here,but forget that,& enjoy the lesser known of Wellers offerings on the album,they are all great tunes tunes all work together...
I`d pay whatever Amazon are asking for "All Mod Cons" and then sit quietly in the land of the smug,
Safe in the knowledge you own a copy.............x
