REWIND: The Jam - 'The Butterfly Collector'

Can a song as amazing as this REALLY have been a mere B side? You can find this on a forthcoming 8 piece vinyl box set featuring all six of The Jam's studio LPs plus four sides of singles and B sides. It looks beautiful, it will sound astonishing and it comes out on November 26. 'The Butterfly Collector' was originally released as the B side to 'Strange Town' on 17 March 1979, the single reaching #15 in the UK charts. The same single was released in the U.S. in May 1979. However, for the American release 'The Butterfly Collector' was catalogued as the A-side.



Also included in 'The Studio Recordings' boxset will be a 44 page Hardback retrospective on the band with introduction by Paul Weller himself.
