Listen and learn popsters in how to write a single and how pop music is elevated from pap to pop perfection. Listening to this collection of tunes in this box set make me feel sorry for the younger generation of pop fans. Ask yourself, go on, what have they got Hearsay Westlife or bankrupt dance music that steals and takes baselines and beeps and moronic repetative rapping and package it in an endless loop of dross. Does any modern pop make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up No! Does this music say anything about your generation No! Can you ever find a band with a cooler lead singer No! Will you ever take pop music as seriously and as passionately as your average Jam fan No! Were the Jam the best band in the World (sort of if you discount the Beatles). This collection of singles has million memeories for any Jam fan your first pair of bowling shoes, how to get that centre parting right and your first stripey blazer. Forget that Look beyond Aunties and Uncles and a few other duff B sides (you'll know em when you hear then)and listen to the power in the tune, the urgency in the music and you'll learn what pop perfection is. After the jam split I have spent the last 19 years trying to find a band that matched what you will find here or on any Jam collection, check out any of the other albums as especially All Mod Cons and Sound Affects and try and find finer English pop music. The search goes on!

In an industry where the single is no more than a piece of marketing, it is always refreshing to take a step back in time to an era where 7" vinyl was possibly the most important influence on the record buying public. In the days when gems were hidden away on B-sides and were not featured anywhere else, when 70p went far and when black plastic turned white. And sometimes, you even played that shiny picture sleeve. In actuality, there are fews genuine great singles bands but The Jam were one of them, and this new CD box set features the early years before they hit number 1 and became the most important group in the UK. From the brash "In The City" to the maturity of "Eton Rifles", Paul Weller became a writer of very English vingettes, wrapped up neatly in the 3 minute pop song. Checking out his own influences with "David Watts", before exploding with "A Bomb In Wardour Street" and "Down In The Tube Station At Midnight" before sarcastically criticising the class sytem with "Eton Rifles". The A Sides are near brilliant but the B-sides are just as thrilling; listen to "Butterfly Collector", a brooding piece of commentary on one of the era's most infamous groupies. This selection is likely to be the lesser well known as The Jam didn't hit it big commercialy until "Going Underground" but it is indicative of a writer who blossomed in three short years into someone who laid solid foundations for his future. If you ever wondered where Weller began, and have little of no knowledge of his first band, this is essential listening. Buy it NOW !

In days gone by I would have missed out on this. Released when finances were different and I couldn't justify paying such money for a luxury item this is why I love Amazon as I am able to add years later.
Good product which is well packages from the finest band this island has ever produced.
