Release Date: Apr 2, 2001. Label: Polydor. Genres: Rock. Number Of Tracks: 21. Listening to this collection of tunes in this box set make me feel sorry for the younger generation of pop fans.

Jam: 45 Rpm: The Singles, 1980-1982

Release Date: Apr 30, 2001. Label: Polydor. Genres: Rock. Number Of Tracks: 24. This version is slightly better than 1977-1979 edition, because some of the songs on these singles are better and this edition offers you more live songs.

Jam: The Very Best Of The Jam

Release Date: 1997. Label: Polydor. Genres: Punk, New Wave, Mod Revival, British Punk. Number Of Tracks: 21. Hardly a necessity for collectors or passionate followers of the group's career, this CD does serve its purpose as a nicely packaged, full-sounding quick study.

Jam: The Millennium Collection: The Best Of The Jam

Release Date: Apr 12, 2005. Label: Polydor. Genres: Punk, New Wave, Mod Revival, British Punk. Number Of Tracks: 11. It does contain great Jam songs and it is enjoyable to listen to, but it is quite expensive and you are better off buying 'Snap!' instead of this one.

Jam: Dig The New Breed

Release Date: Dec 10, 1982. Label: Polydor. Genres: British Punk, Punk, New Wave, Mod Revival. Number Of Tracks: 14. Dig The New Breed is a sometimes rough around the edges live overview of the band's work, from small club dates in 1979 to much larger venues in 1982.

Jam: Beat Surrender

Release Date: May 1993. Label: Karussell. Genres: British Punk, Punk, Mod Revival, New Wave. Number Of Tracks: 14. Beat Surrender combines a couple of hits with poorly chosen album cuts for an incoherent and certainly far from comprehensive package.

jam: The Giftcompact discs
Jam: The Gift

Release Date: Mar 12, 1982. Label: Polydor. Genres: Mod Revival, New Wave. Number Of Tracks: 11. With The Gift, however, Paul Weller seems to have become completely absorbed in it, and more specifically, in Stax-style soul with more than a hint of psychedelia la "Psychedelic Shack."

Jam: This Is The Modern World

Release Date: Nov 18, 1977. Label: Universal/Polydor. Genres: New Wave, Punk, Mod Revival, British Punk. Number Of Tracks: 13. This is a flawed album by Jam standards, but it would certainly have received praise had it been released by another band.

Jam: In The City

Release Date: May 20, 1977. Label: Polydor. Genres: Punk, Mod Revival, British Punk. Number Of Tracks: 12. Even though the band would improve exponentially over the next couple of years, In the City is a remarkable debut and stands as one of the landmark punk albums.
