That is entertainment…

I guess for me the problem with The Jam isn’t that I don’t like them or can’t hear the power and quality of their songs; It’s that I’ve never been able to develop a serious relationship with Paul Weller’s singing. It’s in the same family as Billy Bragg and Joe Strummervery muscularbut somehow, I just don’t connect. It goes without saying that this is my problem, and not a problem with The Jam, who were obviously amazing.
