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.
