The Jam - Direction Reaction Creation (1997 Polydor 5 Disc Collection) Disc 5 Flac & mp3@320


Direction Reaction Creation is the ultimate Jam package, offering 117 tracks over five discs -- essentially the band's complete studio recordings. With a strict adherence to chronological order, the box presents each single followed by its B-side(s) (six of which appear on CD for the first time, including the brilliant "See Saw"), followed by the proper album tracks -- oddly, though, the album versions of the singles are chosen in most places. Unfortunately, this approach sometimes disrupts the flow of the albums, especially in the case of All Mod Cons, which loses three tracks to the treatment, and Setting Sons, which loses "Eton Rifles" to a separate disc. This is a small point for purists to debate -- the difference is really unnoticeable in light of the truly great music found on the discs.
In addition to the regular studio tracks, disc five offers over an hour of studio demos -- 22 previously unreleased tracks of considerably different takes of better-known material, a few never-before-heard Weller and Foxton originals, and some interesting covers like "Rain," "Dead End Street," and "Every Little Bit Hurts." The Jam, simply put, were one the finest bands in rock & roll history, and Direction Reaction Creation offers the proof, showing both their remarkably rapid growth and their incredible consistency.(excerpt, allmusic.com)

I want post this 5 disc collection in the next days. Today i begin with disc 5. Nothing extraordinary to say about it except (In addition to the regular studio tracks, disc five offers over an hour of studio demos); Like all the other discs from this compilation extraordinary great. One of the ten finest british bands in rock'n'roll history in my opinion. Hope you will enjoy!
Have fun
