The Jam - Fire and Skill
The Jam – Fire And Skill: The Jam Live

Sometimes when you are browsing for new stock and interesting pieces for customers you find something which you should know about and already have in your collection. Today has been one of those days, The Jam who I first seen back in 1978 at Coventry Theatre, who I have seen live at least 7 times since and I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen Paul Weller or other variations of ‘The Jam’.  I think it would be fair to say, I like The Jam and I like their live gigs.  I think it would also be fair to say that I have most of their releases on Vinyl and other bits of memorabilia.

However, I don’t have this in my collection ‘The Jam – Fire And Skill: The Jam Live’  I can only assume the reason this isn’t in my collection is because of my love for vinyl has meant I bypassed CDs and only really use two formats the other being MP3.  But I think it is time to purchase this Box Set, dust off my CD Player, turn up the amp and blast out these tracks as they are meant to be heard – Loud and even Louder.

Record Label Description

Named after the legend painted on Paul Weller’s amp, Fire And Skill is a superb six disc boxed set – featuring six previously unreleased concerts, one from each year of The Jam’s major- label career. Packaged in mini, lift-off lid box this set includes a separate hard-back book and individual gatefold wallets for the discs, as well as new essay, period photos and rare memorabilia. All audio has been remastered at Abbey Road.

Winter Sun

Red, White & Blue's

A bit of winter sun has brought out Paula’s artistic side.  I really like the Male and Female mannequins with their matching colour coordinated Red, White and Blues.  Lady is wearing Relco Blue Tonic Skirt with Relco White Short Sleeved Button Down Shirt finished off with a Red Pocket Square.  While the Man is wearing a Warrior Paisley Lined Harrington with a Merc Target T-Shirt.






Winter Sun

Paula has even caught the sun the second picture.  The nearest mannequin is wearing a Warrior Crombie with pocket square and a Brutus Brick Coloured Trimfit Shirt. The second has Warrior Blue Sta Press Trousers and an Art Gallery Off-White Knitted Matt Long Sleeve Polo which are lovely quality made of 100% Soft Merino Wool.
