Jam's 'Snap' expanded

by Modculture 23 January, 2006

Jamsnapcd The Jam’s final album, Snap, is getting the reissue treatment and loses the ‘Compact’ tag on Monday February 13th.

The greatest hits album originally hit the shops in 1983 with a total of 29 tracks. But 8 of those tracks went walkabout when the album was converted to CD, hence the ‘Compact Snap’ title of the reissue.

The new version will be a double album, containing all original material – including the live EP recorded at the band’s last ever gig at Wembley Arena in 1982 and given away as a 45 with initial copies.

    Hi,
    I think the last ever Jam gig was at The Brighton Centre not Wembley Arena

  • A brilliant collection of songs from, quite simply, the best band in the world ever!The three boys from Woking in Surrey were thee definitive band that had it all..in the studio (as you’ll hear here) and the most energetic, melodic, soulful band there has ever been playing live!
    If you’ve not heard much of this band’s repetoire, I know it’s a cliché, well you’ve never lived. To all budding band musicians out there…listen and learn from the masters. They portrayed life, youth, the city, politics, class struggles encapsulated in their three minute works of art. Want inspiration? Have a listen! LOng live The Jam!!
