The Society of Cool
I know...I know there are those older whom hate them and those younger who will ask what is a b-side...!!
But for those on the scene at the time let me whet your apetite....
Liza Radley....Carnaby St,,,,Dreams of Children...Shopping... Aunties and Uncles...Disguises...Pity Poor Alfie....Back in My Arms Again..Tales of the Riverbank...So Sad About Us...A Bomb in Wardour St....
Wats your favourite and why? What were you doing at the time?
Seeing The Paul Weller Movement in 1990 doing "Pity Poor Alfie/Fever" was ace.
Yep - I think a number were technically including Precious.
Although at times I can take or leave the Jam, I have to say they respected and reinvigorated the single, many of which were not on their LPs. The Beatles had much the same philosophy, not that I am making a direct comparison e.g Daytripper, Paperback writer, I Fell Fine etc.
Liza radley...brings back memories..1980 and i will have been 9 years old !
My older sister bought the record and played start! non stop, when she would go out i flipped the 7" over and did the same with Liza radley, great memories of a hot summer.
Thank heavens for older sisters and their record collections, i still have some of them
What, older sisters Dave? lol
Thats a yes to both then , but the records are ageing better !
I think the jam were one of the better bands when it came to b sides, Butterfly Collector is one of my favs..
Didn't Townshend say when he heard The Jam's version of Disguises "It's better then our version" and that The Who's version was just a demo.
Butterfly Collector for me too
Butterfly Collector, Tales from the riverbank and Precious, are my faves, can't say which one I like more than they other.
See Saw, love the riffs, and power chords, one of my fave Jm]am tracks
