Biography

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 ...

There's no doubt this is an excellent collection of singles but why buy this when you could buy the SNAP special edition double CD £1 cheaper. That has every song on this "best of" CD plus another 8 including "Away from the numbers" and "English Rose".

Growing up in the late 70's and early 80's the Jam were my Beatles.
The Greatest Hits package is a great place to start with, as the Jam were really a great Singles band.
When the first Greatest Hits package (called SNAP!)was released back in 1983, it came with a large volume of standout album tracks and B.sides which have some of the Jams finest 3 minutes, but I can't recommend this enough as a great album to buy to start with, Tube Station, Eton Rifles, Going Underground ,Thats Entertainment, Town called Malice and Precious are masterpieces of Singles.
For a snapshot of English life, you won't find better.

What can I say, The Jam have never disappointed me with any of their albums or individual tracks. There is a real mixture of Jam hits on here - from their very early stuff to their last hit, Beat Surrender. Totally inspiring music from a band who had so much talent. A must, must buy.

The Jam are one of those perfect bands that start as you're getting into music, provide a soundtrack of hits to your youth and then break up after several albums without ever turning in a bad one. In the late 70's & early 80's music was still very tribal; mods `n' rockers, soul boys & greasers `n' all that. And one had to be in one in order to have any kinda gang to roam with. Shame. As a rocker it meant that certain bands were against the rules inc. The Jam. Sod that. The music fan finds a way. I had smart dudes in other tribes to feed me. I remember hearing All Around The World on 7" vinyl in a music class at school but it was All Mod Cons with the awesome Down In The Tube Station At Midnight that really did it for me. The story it tells and the images it creates as well as that killer bass line. The Eton Rifles, Going Underground, Precious & Beat Surrender all followed over the years leaving things on a high. Best of all though are floor filler Town Called Malice and the awesome, classic Strange Town about Weller's first trip to London.

Classic band; everyone will have heard at least one of their songs at some point I can gaurantee it, although it is probably a genre that will have a fairly limited appeal these days.

Still, regardless of that fact, you get a lot for your money in this 'best of' album meaning if you're unsure you can give it a try without losing much.
I personally think some of the treble and bass could have done with a bit of a rebalancing, but it still sounds great and brings back many memories!

Why don't you get back in touch with your punk/mod side as well!

I bought this mainly for the singles that I already knew and was surprised to learn how many songs the Jam have released. The sound is a lot harder and more punky than I expected (only having the singles to go on) and I have been very pleased. This is more the type of album that I, personally, would put on to jump around to the songs that I know rather than listen to from beginning to end - but that's just me.
There's a lot here to like.
Enjoy

Bought 'In The city' when it first came out in Tower Records in Oxford Street or Regents Street in London and it seems like yesterday when I listen to this with all the raw energy of those early days. The later tracks are mostly pretty good too. Great introduction to the Jam.

I hadn't heard much of The Jam before I bought this CD, but for a fiver I though I might as well. I was not disappointed, every song on there is cleverly written and the album is great to listen to and at times very entertaining. Weller is an excellent lyricist, as is Foxton. Would recommend to all.
