The Jam 1977 (40th Anniversary) 40th Anniversary edition boxset of legendary rock / mod-rock band The Jam's debut year when they release two albums and three singles. 5 CDs, a 144-page book, postcards all housed in a box. The Jam became one of the most popular bands to emerge from the English punk rock scene of ’77 and had a phenomenal impact on pop music and wider youth culture. In their short career, they achieved 18 consecutive Top 40 singles in the UK (including 4 number 1s) and released 6 ground-breaking albums and went on to influence a generation with their music, style, politics and inspiration. - Disc 1 - ‘In The City’ - Debut LP from May 1977. Using albums by The Who and Dr Feelgood and the live thrill of the Sex Pistols as a template the Jam created their exhilarating debut album which includes hit single In The City, live favourite (and suggested single) Art School and Paul Weller’s most ambitious early song – Away From The Numbers. - Disc 2 – ‘Demos’ includes 11 demos made for the first album – 6 of which are previously unreleased. - Disc 3 - ‘This Is The Modern World’ the follow-up album, released a few months after debut in late 1977, with iconic Gered Mankowitz cover shot. Includes the rousing hit single The Modern World and some of Weller’s early introspective gems – Life From A Window and I Need You (For Someone), as well as The Combine, a track that pointed markedly towards the next album All Mod Cons. - Disc 4 – ‘Live’ includes the previously-unreleased concert from the ‘Nashville’ – September 10th 1977, featuring material from the first two albums. Also features the two legendary John Peel sessions from 1977. - Disc 5 – a DVD featuring TV appearances and promo videos from 1977. UMC / Polydor CD

The Jam Snap! Originally released in 1983, Snap! was the first ‘greatest hits’ collection from The Jam and appeared just after Paul Weller took the shock decision to split up the band at the height of their popularity and success. The title Snap! originates from the production, the A&R team and the band in the studio listening back to recording sessions and deciding if the track had the necessary distinctive Jam ‘snap’ sound to make the cut…!! The original 29-track album with chronological sequencing clearly illustrates their brief but stunning story, from explosive debut on the embryonic English punk scene and their meteoric rise to become one of the greatest and best-loved British bands. From their thrilling debut single – In The City to their farewell – Beat Surrender the collection features 16 top-30 singles – 4 number ones! Features hit singles – Down In The Tube Station At Midnight, Strange Town, When You’re Young, Going Underground, That’s Entertainment, Start!, Town Called Malice , The Eton Rifles and many more. Also includes remarkable B-side tracks such as The Butterfly Collector and Tales from the Riverbank. UMC / Polydor 7" | LP
The Jam In The City LP version of The Jam's debut album! Upon the album's release, In The City received all-round positive reviews. Phil McNeil from the NME said Weller's songwriting "captures that entire teen frustration vibe with the melodic grace and dynamic aplomb of early Kinks and Who". Brian Harrigan of Melody Maker was equally impressed, proclaiming that "[t]he Weller composed songs are anything but an embarrassement, he has a deft touch that places his material on a much higher plateau". In the Record Mirror, Barry Cain wrote, "[a]rmed and extremely dangerous The Jam stalk the decrepit grooves. If you don't like them, hard luck they're gonna be around for a long time. It's been a long time since albums actually reflected pre-20 delusions and this one does". UMC LP
The Jam All Mod Cons Reissue of the third full length album from The Jam. Originally released in 1978 the album was met with great acclaimed and established the band to become important within the 80's. The youthful perspective and impassioned delivery on All Mod Cons first earned Weller the "voice of a generation" tag, and it certainly captures a moment in time, but really, the feelings and sentiments expressed on the album just as easily speak to any future generation of young people. Terms like "classic" are often bandied about, but in the case of All Mod Cons, it is certainly deserved. - All Music UMC LP
