In October Universal Music will release The Jam / 1977a new 40th anniversary, five-disc box set celebrating the busy debut year of The Jam when Paul Weller, Rick Buckler Bruce Foxton delivered two albums and three hit singles.

This forthcoming collection features remastered versions of both albums “In The City” and “This Is The Modern World”, and despite a plethora of Jam box sets in the last five or six years the label have dug out six previously unreleased demos from the first album which feature on the second CD alongside five further demos which have been issued before.

CD four is a live disc and includes a previously unreleased concert (15 tracks) from “Live at the ‘Nashville’ – September 10th 1977 recorded on 10th September 1977.

This is paired with two John Peel Sessions from the same year. Finally the fifth disc – a DVD – features TV appearances and promo videos.

This discs in this box set are packaged in mini-LP vinyl replica wallets with printed inner bags. In The City uses the US version of the inner sleeve and This Is The Modern World features an alternate Gered Markowitz cover image. The box is a rigid card, lift-off lid variety and comes with a 144-page book, featuring new liner notes, period photos etc. It comes with five postcards.
