To celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Jam’s final studio album--as well as the band's startling split-- this deluxe version of The Gift has been put together. Disc 1 is the original album remastered and includes 10 singles and b-sides from the period, up to the point that the band split. Disc 2 is made up of 15 remastered demos and alternate tracks, 13 of which are previously unreleased.

The single that was released off the Gift is also the best track, and that is "Town called Malice." I can still remember the exact place i was standing when i heard this for the first time.It was the first song that had ever had such an effect on me, maybe because i was living in a town exactly like "Malice." The song is absolutely majestic,combining an absolute positive with an absolute negative but bringing them together somehow in perfect harmony. If that's the best track then it is followed by Happy Together, Running on the spot and Carnation. Those are the 4 exceptional tracks and worth the price of the album.Read more ›
I love the Deluxe version. All the very good Paul Weller solo albums show The Gift in a very different light. It's eclecticism is now its strength. Plus some knowledge of Northern Soul music helps a lot.
The punchy re-master sounds gorgeous and the album is a great play from start to finish. Plus the Bitterest Pill and Beat Surrender tracks and associated B-sides make a lot more sense than they did at the time.
Highest compliment is that it sounds contemporary whereas, say, Setting Sons does sound a bit dated.
Give it a listen and you won't be disappointed.
Nothing captures the essence of seeing the Jam quite as much as Happy Together. Worth the purchase on its own.
