Snappy collection of essential Mod-Rock May 12 2006
By Soulboogiealex - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Paul Weller is often seen as Daddy Britpop. Maybe even more than the Beatles, he was the main influence behind the Britpop revival in the nineties. Bands as Oasis, Supergrass and the Verve all got to pay their dues to Mister Weller and it all started with the Jam.

The Jam rose to legendary status during the dawn of Punk rock. Although they never sounded as raw as the Sex Pistols or the Clash they are considered to be one of the greatest bands of that generation. Their sound is deeply indebted to Northern Soul, Funky and thrilling. Their songs were Snappy pop gems, pure working-class poetry. Unlike other Punk Rockers, their image was pristine, with cool sharp cut suits or expensive leisure wear. They were almost a movement on their own within the Punk scene.

Snap was originally released as a double vinyl (remember those) and then comprised to a single disc. Because not everything of the original vinyl release fitted on a single disc eight tunes were cut form the release. The bonus EP that came with the original release disappeared all together. For decades fans had to make do with either the complete discography on disc or lacking compilations. This atrocity is finally set right with the re-release on disc of Snap in it original form, including the EP and a beautiful booklet. This truly is a must have for anyone interested in British music and an essential for any Punk Rock fan.

The Perfect Jam Album Jan. 26 2006
By Dee Sharp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I owed this album on vinyl (still do, in fact) and played the daylights out of it. It was the soundtrack to my angst filled teens. And the editorial review above is spot-on: I bought the original CD, which had about 25% of the songs trimmed away, robbing the record of its soul.

This is a welcome return for the record. It is a brilliant overview of the group, capturing the band's fire as a unit and Paul Weller's skill as a composer.

The artwork faithfully restores the original LP art while beautifully augmenting it with lyrics and 7" single & LP covers (which, for fear of overreminiscing, I had on a Snap T-shirt I bought in London in '84).

The coup de grace that makes this superior to all the other Jam retrospectives is the inclusion (finally!) of the Live ep, which, to these ears, is the best live recording of The Jam available.

This is a magnificent piece for the long time fan, and a well worthwhile purchase for the novice looking to understand why Paul Weller is called The Modfather and The Godfather of Britpop, and why The Jam is one of the best bands England ever produced.

Greatest greatest hits of The Jam May 14 2007
By Ioannis P. Kalogiannis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I had this on vinyl and its unusable now. It was one of my last vinyl purchases and I just HAD to replace it.

The Jam where my all times favorite group back in the early 80s (when I was running around in very tight trousers and black trenchcoats) but I could never find all the songs and all the singles together, untlil SNAP!.

If you don't know The Jam, you are missing one very important piece of music history and culture.

If you only buy one album from The Jam, this should be it. Nov. 20 2011
By David R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This disc addresses the omissions in the previously released "Compact Snap". I enjoyed the booklet, and found that there was no issue with the sound quality, unlike another reviewer. A good sampling of the evolving style, with a few true gems, like "That's Entertainment", and "Tales From The Riverbank".
