Lots of thought has gone into this product. Very often these packages are not very high quality. Not So with JAMC. Beautiful Pictures, and high quality materials used. The intervierw is not that inspiring, but JAMC were always about the music. Collected B-sides, such as 'Join the Dots' by the Cure,'Downside up' by Siouxsie, and now 'the power of negative thinking' really show up the stunning creativity of post punk groups. It also shows the compromising they had to make due to the power of record labels at the time. B-sides were a way for creative musicians to let their hairdown, and not have to think about radio airplay etc. It is sad that the B side has gone effectively, into remix heaven/hell. If ever a band deserved re-evaluting it is JAMC. Do your evaluations the best way and buy this 4 cd set.

HASH(0xa34d560c) out of 5 stars Here's a quick rundown of what's not on this great boxed set 6 Oct. 2008
By Scott Klapman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Thank you Rhino, I love this. Thank you Reids, as well. This list is only intended for those completist fans wondering what didn't make the box, and are almost all from UK-only vinyl releases:

1) "Upside Down" (demo) - from the extremely rare w/l testpressing of the unreleased 12" version of said single.

2) The live Can cover, "Mushroom (Head)" - previously on the "Barbed Wire Kisses" compilation, and culled from the b-side of "April Skies."

3) "Psychocandy" & "Some Candy Talking" (both acoustic) - from the acoustic 2nd 7" single of the "Some Candy Talking" double 7" set.

4) "Some Candy Talking" (NME version) - kickin' noisier version from the NME freebie 7" EP from 1986, called "NME's Big Four."

5) "Nine Million Rainy Days" (Live) - from the 1988 Sounds - Waves 2 freebie 7" EP.

6) "Taste of Cindy" & "April Skies" (both Recorded Live in Detroit) - b-sides to "Sidewalking."

7) "Happy When It Rains" (Long Version); various mixes of "Sidewalking," "Reverence," "Far Gone and Out" & "Teenage Lust."

8) A live Cramps cover, "New Kind Of Kick," from the "Come On" CD #2 (recorded live at UC San Diego CA 11th November 1992); also appears on the "Alternative NRG" live compilation to benefit Greenpeace.

9) The 3 live b-sides from the limited-edition 10" of "Almost Gold."

Thanks for reading, and please enjoy the wonders of the box.

HASH(0xa34d5660) out of 5 stars JAMC is as JAMC does 22 Feb. 2009
By David Cummins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The Jesus and Mary Chain is my all time favorite band, so of course, I loved this 4 CD set. The demo versions, alternate versions, and unreleased tracks are great. My only complaint is that half the set is taken up by pretty much all the tracks from the CDs "Barbed Wire Kisses" and "Hate Rock'n'Roll". I already own those two CDs and anybody who is a big enough JAMC fan to want to buy this set probably already has them too. It might have been better as a 2 disc set instead of a 4 disc, and just let "Barbed Wire Kisses" and "Hate Rock'n'Roll" stand on their own. Or I would've loved to have seen more demos or some live tracks instead.
That all being said, If you love the Jesus and Mary Chain, you will love "The Power of Negative Thinking".

HASH(0xa34d5ea0) out of 5 stars Don't Ever Change 13 Oct. 2008
By Jesse SB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Jesus and Mary Chain are slowly becoming my favorite band. In the recently released box set "The Power Of Negative Thinking: B-Sides And Rarities" JAMC prove themselves as a band that has variety and have a deep understanding of the rock and roll format. I'm a sucker for that format especially when the blues are more of an influence than the folk. i.e. T. Rex (not Tyrannosaurus Rex), The Doors, 13th Floor Elevators, Velvet Underground. However, the Jesus and Mary Chain don't sound like any of these bands, in the slightest.
This compilation includes some great covers of really really old, like oldie old songs I've always loved like: 'My Girl', 'Surfin' USA', 'Who Do You Love' all with their trademark spice.
So don't think The Jesus and Mary Chain are just the Kings of Leon of the 80's, oh no. They are much more...

HASH(0xa34d5e7c) out of 5 stars JAMC BOX-Wow! 9 April 2009
By The Mighty Tyrone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have most if not all of these songs on vinyl but having them in one place and
the sheer quality of this influential band's songs make this box a must have item.
