The Jam - About The Young Idea

The Jam

About The Young Idea is the story of The Jam. It charts their career from formation in the early seventies, through the heady days of chart success and on to their break up in 1982. The program features extensive, brand new interviews with Paul Weller, Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler alongside archive performance footage and new contributions from fans, journalists and many involved in the band’s career. The package contains About The Young Idea on Disc One and When You’re Young, The Jam’s previously unreleased performance on famous German TV show Rockpalast from 1980 on Disc Two. Together these make up the ultimate set for any fans of The Jam.
