There are several Jam greatest-hits sets, and each does a very good job at summarizing the group’s U.K. accomplishments. The Very Best of The Jam features the single edits, mixes, and versions where possible. Since not everyone is interested in full-length album versions of songs but would rather hear the familiar radio versions, it makes good sense to consider this compilation. (In some cases, The Jam's album versions were rerecordings of the singles.) Here, “The Modern World” is even presented in its obscenity-censored version (though “The Dreams of Children” leaves in its curse word). Throughout, the remastered sound is bright and powerful. The Jam mastered and defined the sound of late-'70s mod, and Paul Weller proved to be a songwriter on par with his heroes Pete Townshend and Ray Davies, despite working within fewer years and with an international marketplace not as sympathetic to U.K. bands as during the '60s.
