The Jam – Thick As Thieves (1979)

Setting Sons was my favourite LP when I was 15 in 1979.

Every song perfect.

For various reasons I fell out of love with The Jam for a few years; The Smiths and New Order filled the immediate gap then The Pixies, Pavement, Guided By Voices, Mo’Wax, Massive Attack, etc.

But tracks on this LP always resonated.

I’ve previously posted “Private Hell”, here, which, in my opinion, is the Jam at their unsurpassed best.

Thick as Thieves was only ever an LP track but the guitar, bass and drums are unbelievable and the part where Paul and Bruce trade lyrics from 2:48 on the LP version is sublime.

The original LP track.
