Best of The Jam
on 21 February 2015
This 1993 import collection might not offer the best of liner notes or indeed the most tracks, but it still ranks in my eyes as one of the best compilations of The Jam's music in terms of price and variety.
Here we have an electric mix of some of the band's best known songs alongside the lesser known, and if I'm honest, I picked this one up intentionally for the title track 'Beat Surrender', which was surprisingly absent on my other compilation. Other classics on also here include the band's signature hits 'Town Called Malice' and 'That's Entertainment', as well as some interesting fillers like 'Batman Theme'.
'Beat Surrender' is a sweet single CD of the famous, and not so famous material from a great British band I've always enjoyed, and who continue to influence.
