This should be fun. I know they made their critical mark a bit later in their career for the most part, but I really dig those first two records, and they were a fine straight ahead punk band in their early days.

I like both the albums. I'm uncertain if I'll buy this as I have everything bar a few of the demos. All the stuff on the DVD is previously available.

Yet again the Jam put the Clash to shame with the care and time taken on their back catalogue. Is Trish Ronan still looking after the Clash's business interests in true Spinal Tap style?
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Agreed absolutely about the way Jam fans are spoiled re. archive releases, compared (hem hem) to some contemporary bands :mrgreen:
This looks great, but I too might well settle for just buying it as a download, for the demos and Nashville live stuff.
