Image of The Jam


The Jam exploded onto the punk scene in 1977. Led by guitarist/singer Paul Weller, a young, sharp suited mod, who was inspired by Otis Redding, Dr Feelgood, The Who and the Sex Pistols in equal measure, with Bruce Foxton, the Motown influenced bassist and Rick Buckler, the metronome time keeper, they delivered their ferocious mission statement – In The City, a musical tribute to London ...

5.0 out of 5 stars START! 14 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
I was brought up on the Jam and own pretty much everything Weller has done, but still I will buy this Why? because it is a great Jam comp, yes there are tracks missing but still it is a brillant comp.

If you have every not heard of the Jam {can there really be people out there like that?} then this is the perfect start.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 star music, 4 star Compilation 5 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
The Jam were the very band I grew up with.

Seeing Going Underground on TOTP blew me away, the riff, the energy.

As a fan I of course have my own personal favourites.

All tracks on this album are terrific..but, it omits some key tracks.

'A'Bomb in Wardour Street' and 'News of the World' were great A'sides, the latter a Bruce Foxton song, both sadly missing here.

The Jam were more than a singles band, excellent Album tracks and B sides made them the complete band and this album goes some way to show that, but some really great tracks have been missed by the compilers 'Smithers-Jones' another Bruce Foxton song, some great album tracks, 'Art School', 'It's too bad' and 'Billy Hunt'.

Despite the last two tracks on CD2 being great covers, those two missing A'sides would have been a better choice and really have made this a 5 star compilation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Luxury 1 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yet another Jam compilation. A good mix of tracks, including tracks that were never origionaly released although all the tracks have appeared on other compilation albums or Extra's etc this is still a good one with a good quality booklet included. As usual, the sleve notes a not worth bothering with. I don't know why record companies insist on sleeve notes written by people noboody has heard of and who have done nothing more than seen the band at some point. Still a good compalation though.
