If you only ever own one Jam album, make it this one
on 7 February 2006
I originally had this as an LP back in 1983.
It was at the time the only album to feature the studio recordings of Strange Town, When you are young, All around the World, Bitterest Pill, News of the World, Beat Surrender, Funeral Pyre, Absolute Beginners and that all time classic Going Underground.
There have been since several 'Hits' and 'best of packages'even an edited version of SNAP! just including the singles, but this is the one to have.
The Jam were a great singles band, but hidden on LP's were some terrific tracks, Thick as Thieves, Man in the Corner Shop.
But some wonderful B sides Butterfly Collector, Smithers-Jones and the classic B side that should have been an A side Tales From the Riverbank.
If you only ever own one Jam album, make it this one.
All the essential stuff is here for under a Tenner.
