The Jam’s “Sound Affects” Deluxe Reissue Due in November.

The Jam’s fifth album, 1980’s Sound Affects is getting a full deluxe reissue, complete with eight bonus tracks previously unreleased. Marking the 30th Anniversary of the album’s release, the reissue will feature the original U.K. track line up (starting with “Pretty Green,” whereas in the U.S. where “Start!” was the first track), a total of 22 bonus tracks which includes demos, B-sides, and alternate takes, and a 24-page booklet of sleeve notes by John Harris, a new interview with Paul Weller, and new photographs and artifacts of the time.

Of particular note, the eight unreleased tracks include demo versions of “Pretty Green” and “Start!” — the latter of which is based on the solos and bassline of the Beatles’ “Taxman” from the album Revolver — and a cover of the Kinks’ “Waterloo Sunset.”
