I know for sure that there will be more extensive collections of The Jam's music, but as someone who was only familiar with the big hits, this three pound (from most stores and Amazon at the time of writing) compilation was just what I was looking for.
Among the tracks are 'That's Entertainment', 'Going Underground', 'Town Called Malice' and 'Down In The Tube Station At The Midnight', which were the reasons why I bought the CD. However, track 9 'Wasteland' is now my favourite, and 'That's Entertainment: The Collection'' offers plenty of other hits, as well as album highlights, B sides ('The Butterfly Collector' is a great tune, deserving of an A side) and a live recording of 'Set The House Ablaze'.
The packaging is also very nice, the cover looks cool, and the booklet contains detailed liner notes, photographs, newspaper cuttings and memorabilia. I doubt that the compilation offers anything new to someone who is a already a fan (then again, I doubt that they are the target audience), but from a causal listener's point of view - I can't fault it. Well, it would have been nice to have 'Beat Surrender' as well, but nevertheless, this budget album was a great starting point for me.
