'The Gift' was propelled to No.1 in the UK by the smash hit, double-sided single ‘Town Called Malice’ and ‘Precious.'
After their late 1982 split, The Jam's name was seen in the UK singles chart again precisely one month later.
"I think the new mix reveals lots more parts that you didn’t hear in the original while still keeping the energy.” Weller says of the album's new edition.
The Jam were the most popular band to emerge from the initial wave of British punk rock in 1977 and had the most impact on British pop music.
Bruce Foxton has again enlisted Paul Weller for a guest appearance on his new album Smash The Clock, which also features Wilko Johnson and Paul Jones.
‘About The Young Idea — The Very Best Of The Jam,' a two-disc, 47-track retrospective, will be released on June 22 to coincide with a new London exhibition.
Former Jam drummer Rick Buckler will have his autobiography ‘That’s Entertainment: My Life In The Jam’ published by Omnibus Press on May 11.
