I saw F.T.J. when they played Portland in 2007... As a huge fan of The Jam I wasn't sure what to expect from a reunion without Paul Weller. I had waited 25 years to see them and this would "have to do", or so I thought... Well, from the moment the band started playing, my jaw hit the floor and stayed there for the next 90 minutes. They were tight, energetic and the Foxton/Buckler rhythm section(one of the best ever in my opinion) was as solid as a rock. Russell Hastings manages to pull off the impossible(replacing PW) and exceeds any and all expectations. He had big shoes to fill - he did - and now owns them. He plays and sings so much like Weller it's astounding... if your eyes were closed you might not even be able to tell the difference.
Now about this double dvd set - disc one is a sold-out London show and is extremely well done. The sound is especially good, with Bruce's bass coming through like it should. The video is great too, thankfully lacking that all too prevalent "short attention span" quick cutting that has marred too many live dvds, such as the last SLF dvd. Great set choice, although I really would have loved to see "Funeral Pyre" included. Disc two contains interviews, and while I have not watched all of them, It's good to see the sincere love and respect expressed from all involved for The Jam's music, legacy, and fans... especially in light of the somewhat dismissive tone Weller tends to take regarding the band that made him famous. Gorgeous packaging as well, including a full color booklet of photos. I cannot recommend this dvd enough... for Jam fans it's absolutely mandatory.

I will modify this review once I've ordered this dvd. In the meantime, I saw them in San Diego at the House of Blues and they just killed. Been a fan of the Jam since maybe 1978 but never smart enough to go see them when they played in L.A. area back in that period.

No idea what to expect from this reunion of 2 of 3 members of the Jam and a different singer. Turns out there was a 4th guy sorta off to the side adding more guitar. It was total great. What I liked best besides that Bruce Foxton didn't seem to have aged a day, he was as trim as ever, wore like the same silver suit and even jumped around, was the full passion of the band. And even better, they didn't mess around with the later 'I think I want to play more Motown influenced songs now'. They just focused on the lst 2 or 3 albums, the classic Jam material. I was on my feet virtually the whole show and having seen a number of reunion shows (Buzzcocks, great, Wire nuttin' much, Fear fantastic, Vibrators horrid, Black Flag with a drum machine actually killed punk at the Paladium about 4 years ago (or it was so bad it coulda) but From the Jam were spectacular, energetic, the vocals were full and sincere and not an embarassment as one might think they could have been and, heck, I really didn't miss Mr. Weller a tall. I'm just glad he didn't get so bent outta shape that he somehow got in the way of this band being around and touring. Well done Mr. Weller. I think they honored your songs with gusto. I can't wait to get this 2xDVD set.

Having seen the band at a club in America during this tour, I was hesitant to pay the full price for admission. However, From The Jam turned out to be an excellent group in a live setting, which served as an extension of the original band. Imagine if Paul Weller had passed away in 1982 and singer Russell Hastings was brought in as the replacement lead singer. Although Weller is still alive and has refused to tour or reunite The Jam, Russell Hastings has been the lead singer of From The Jam since 2007. Bruce Foxton is a terrific bass player and the driving force behind this new extension of The Jam.

The production on this DVD is top-notch with great filming an professionally mixed audio. This is no amateur release, it took substantial amounts of money and time to visualize the DVD.

If one could enter the mind of Paul Weller, I'm not sure our questions would be answered. Thanks to Bruce Foxton and the formation of From The Jam, the music of The Jam can be watched on DVD and seen live in concert. I suspect that Paul Weller might have felt intimidated after hearing them perform. Perhaps this is why Paul Weller was reluctant to tour again with The Jam.

All I have to say is Mr Russell Hastings you have made a very happy man feel a little old! The Jam was the first band I ever saw live at the age of 15, and 32 years later that memory is still vivid, and I still listen to and play Jam numbers. Well Mr Hastings thank you for being a part of this and in my humble opinion you blow away a certain Mr Weller.

And on a final note is there any chance of you guys visiting Central Florida?!?!?!

Both dvds run approximately 90 minutes each. Definitely worth the money!
