Product Description

Review

"...lovingly made by the fans, for the fans, its 180-plus
picture pages tell a story of a Britain on the cusp of something; of a band
on the rise and rise; and of a trio heading, however unknowingly, towards a
grotesquely acrimonious split." -- Record Collector, August 2007

From the Back Cover

Through more than 200 previously unpublished photographs, The
Jam: Unseen is a unique record of one of the most successful, important and
enduring of British bands.

A quarter of a century after working as The Jam's official photographer,
Twink has collected together his stunning, never-before-seen pictures of a
band at the pinnacle of their career. This book is a must-have for all
aficionados of The Jam.

"Twink's amazing photographs capture the very essence of the band."
Dennis Munday, The Jam's A&R Manager

"A brilliant photographic anthology ... The real beauty is that they reveal
a much more intimate and human aspect of the band."
Drew Hipson, Editor, All Mod Icon

"A gift to Jam fans around the world, defining an era that was special for
all of us."
Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler, The Jam

Format: Paperback
An intimate portrait of The Jam through colour and mono photos, this book is fantastic for either old or new fans! Full of both public onstage moments and the more personal backstage shots, it highlights a side of the band that the public rarely saw. It really captures both the atmosphere and the youthful energy that the Jam created through their music, and yes- Paul Weller is finally pictured smiling! An excellent addition to any Jam fans collection!

Format: Paperback
A first class, stunning collection of photographs, painstakingly put together in this beautifully produced book. This book captures the UK's top band at the peak of their success . . . Twink had a brief, Access ALL Areas and in this can be seen in his photographs. A nice mix of full colour and mono images. Has to be worth the money to see the ones of Weller smiling!

Go on celebrate 30 years of The Jam

Format: Paperback
This is a great collection of photojournalism from the group's official photographer from their peak period. It shows the band backstage, on stage, relaxing, rehearsing and recording. What is clear is that the ladfs in the group were about as down to earth as they come. There are no trappings of excess or bust-ups one normally associates with many succesful group. Instead this book is an artefact which records the group at a time when they were the most succesful group in the country.

A valuable addition to the collection of any true Jam or general music fan
