A great sounding reissue,
By A Customer
This review is from: Direction Reaction Creation (Audio CD)
I won't repeat all the lavish praise of previous reviews, but rather emphasize a couple of things. First, the sound quality on this set is *much* better than the previous Polydor (U.S.) individual album masters I own. This really helps recapture the impact of the Jam's crunchy power-trio sound that I remember from the original 45's. Second, a lot of the non-album material that I haven't heard for a while sounds quite good and fresh -- not just "Going Underground" but also singles like "Beat Surrender" that back in the early 80s seemed not quite up to standards.

i agree that the sound quality on this is first class, certainly is with Naim kit. There is no harshness and the immediacy makes it connect like a live performance. I love the no nonsense approach of the songs and the lyrics hit home with a hammer-like impact especially if you can find a transcription.
