The Jam will release a comprehensive eight-disc box set next month.

The defunct band's former frontman Paul Weller has written an introduction to a 44-page hardback book which will accompany the release of the collectors set on November 25. 'The Jam – The Studio Recordings', will comprise of all six of the band's studio albums including 'All Mod Cons' and 'In The City' on heavyweight vinyl. The band's back catalogue will be accompanied by two collections of non-album singles and rarities.

Earlier this year Paul Weller confirmed that he will never reform The Jam as "it would be absurd". The Modfather said he admires bands like The Rolling Stones who keep rocking into their late '60s but admits he couldn't do it, as he doesn't want to be performing a whole set of songs that are over 30 years old.
