The Jam: In The City (Polydor 2383 447)

Kris Needs, ZigZag, June 1977

THE JAM have come a long way since I first saw them supporting the Sex Pistols at Dunstable last October. Then they had an ill-fitting pianist, the bass guitarist had long hair, and the original numbers were outweighed by oldies like 'Little Queenie' and the mid-60s soul standards that they still do.

Total word count of piece: 767
