Emporer's New Clothes?
on 17 October 2002
This is a truly lush presentation. Great packaging, two discs, free postcards(?)
But let's concentrate on the innards. The Jam were undoubtably a phenomenal live experience. Here's where the two discs succeed and fail.
The videos for the singles are stilted, cheap, clumsy and without passion.
However, the meat of the matter here is the live performances captured on film and TV.
If you want to see The Jam at full tilt then there is much here to enjoy.
However the two 'documentaries' are very similar, both borrowing heavily from items available elsewhere on the discs.
This collection is a deal at around £15 maximum. There's too much padding for it to go for full price.
