Enjoying The Jam

Any fans here?

my favs:

Going Underground
Non Stop Dancing
In The City
Life From A Window
Carnation
To Be Someone (Didn't We Have A Nice Time?)
'A' Bomb In Wardour Street
Thick As Thieves
Eton Rifles
English Rose

When You're Young
The Dreams Of Children
That's Entertainment
Man in the Corner Shop
Boy About Town
Town Called Malice
Running On The Spot


Weller's an absolute God. Got "WildWood" remastered last week, and it drove me to all things Paul Weller in my collection. What a rock & roll band.

I only know a few tracks, but I love the song In The City.

Great band with so many great songs. Two of my faves I haven't seen mentioned yet - 'The Butterfly Collector' and 'Liza Radley'.

Loved the Jam ....but i love Paul’s solo material more.

My eyes nearly popped out my head when i saw an advert that the Jam had reformed and were touring ...... then i read the small print 'minus Paul Weller

Too true.

News of the World is one of my favourites that hasn't been mentioned yet. You've listed all the rest I think. Even if The Jam hadn't written all these fantastic songs and just done A Town Called Malice I think they'd still be fondly remembered. Has there ever been a catchier rock song written? As soon as I hear the opening seconds it makes me want to dance. No wonder they used it in Billy Elliott- it's perfect for it.

"22 Dreams" is scheduled for a June release. Rumors are it will
be a double album. There's your album of the year.

I've not listened to any of Paul's solo stuff. I lost him at Style Council. Maybe a relisten is needed.

Wildwood.



Arguably the best rock & roll album released in the 90's. And usually a winning argument. A wonderful album.

Barely a hint of The Jam or Style Council in the sound.

It's a different person.

A true rebirth.

What's wrong with The Style Council? I love them! Definitely a different sounding band, but still, so many songs that I love. "Cost of Loving" and "Confessions of a Pop Group" are two of my favorite albums of theirs.

Nothing really. I just liked the Jam better.
