The Jam: Live at Newcastle City Hall - Exclusive Pressing

Only 1500 being pressed

The Jam live in Newcastle from October 1980, a blistering gig, with the band at their peak, previewing songs from forthcoming album ‘Sound Affects’.

In the time between The Jam’s show at Reading University (on Disc 3 of the ‘Fire & Skill’ box set) and their appearance at Newcastle City Hall 20 months later, there had been more extraordinary developments in the group’s world. ‘Setting Sons’, their fourth album, had given them a Top 3 hit with ‘The Eton Rifles’, which was followed in February 1980 with the stirring Number 1 single, ‘Going Underground’. After three years on Polydor, The Jam had finally become the biggest group in the UK.
