The Jam: About the Young Idea: The Very Best of the Jam

Album Notes

A companion compilation to the museum exhibit About the Young Idea that ran at the Somerset House in the summer of 2015, this double-disc set covers familiar territory: all the hits and all the album tracks that regularly show up on Jam collections through the years. This has a couple of rarities -- a radio ad for "In the City," the flexi-disc release "Pop Art Poem," demos of "The Burning Sky" and "Takin' My Love" (the latter previously unreleased) -- but they're buried underneath the march from "In the City" to "Beat Surrender," a journey that's enjoyable whenever it's taken, but most Jam fans will have a similar voyage somewhere in their collection. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
