This not a collection to view the artwork of the cover but probably the best value for money Jam collection you can and ever will buy.To include all the studio albums,various B-sides and rare unreleased recordings will ensure your money is well spent.
I don't want to harp on about how good and influential the Jam were because it has been said many times before.All I have to say is that if you want The Jam on CD do not pass this by as you will not find a finer collection - ask the bands that have followed them in later years and still appreciate the music they composed - just ask Noel Gallagher.
The music speaks louder than anything in black and white - not everything in paper is plain and not to be heard or seen.
Paul Weller, master song writer, and considered one of the most influential musicians who inspired Oasis and Ocean Colour Scene, took care in those songs he didnt release and produced as B-sides...probably why Noel Gallagher follows suite, and as so many of these tunes are those that were B-sides or unreleased, you are guaranteed quality from this box set.
I love the Jam, and when i discovered that this selection was available, i bought it without second thought. Even owning several albums, there are still 50+ tracks i wouldnt have heard anywhere else, so its damn well worth a buy!
I would recommend it.
The only gripes I have with it is that due to it's 'no-live-tracks' policy, the b-sides of 'The Modern World' single are missing. Similarly, the single versions of 'Start!' and 'Precious' aren't here.
Other than that, if you buy this and 'Extras' you will have basically everything the Jam recorded in the studio, and at a good price too!
It's all you'll ever need.
A powerful and complete journey down memory lane, but still sounds so great. The Jam were stylish, cool and intense ... and I've still not completely forgiven Paul Weller for splitting them up .... but this set goes a long, long way to help. The best money I've spent this year!
Get it, turn it up loud and .... enjoy!
