Stan_Jeffries The_Jam_On_Track Book Paul_Weller
From the band’s first single, In The City in April 1977, to their last, Beat Surrender in November 1982, The Jam went from new wave also-rans to arguably the biggest band in Britain.
The Jam On Track covers every song released by the group during their five-and-a-half-year career that saw them have thirteen top twenty singles and five top ten albums in the UK. It also includes analysis of of demos and little-known recordings from various compilation albums released after the band’s demise.
For both the dedicated and the curious, this book guides you through the career of one of Britain’s musical giants.
