4 A must for The Jam fan.minimadash | 08/12/2008 | See all minimadash's reviews (1)If you have bought this CD set I assume you are already a 'proper' fan of The Jam, so banging on about how good musically and lyrically the CDs are is a waist of time as you know it is brilliant. It is what else this set has to offer that is important. For those with just a passing interest or would like to own all of The Jams studio albums you can't go wrong. First of all the set includes all their albums and all the singles and the B sides to the singles. The tracks you will be looking for are included ( In The City, Down In A Tube Station At Midnight, Town Called Malace, Thats Entertainment and Going Underground, to name a few). Disc 5 also has alternative versions and demo tracks which is always good, so making it as complete as you could want. Secondly there is a book with an interesting insight into the bands history, and all the tour dates and venues listed of all their live gigs are listed which makes good reading. This makes it a great set at a great price (£35). The only down side to this set is if you are a proper fan, there are some things missing. There is no lyrics printed in the book which to me on any CD is criminal and there are so many rariteis and demos which are missing, which you would want if it to be as complete as they would have you believe. I would of liked to see some live stuff too. This is a great CD set if you want all the albums and singles and a bit more thrown in. But if you want the Complete Jam experience it falls slightly short, especially now there are special editions of their albums available with demos and rarities, but you will love it anyway- Treat yourself.
