MOJO’s album-by-album guide to Paul Weller’s music, from The Jam and The Style Council to his 30-year solo career is on sale this Thursday, 22 December, and available to pre-order HERE.
New wave hero, ’80s soul-pop star and, since the ’90s, solo musical adventurer, Paul Weller has been a vital force in British music for almost half a century. But, as creator of nearly 30 studio albums – with The Jam, The Style Council and then under his own name – and author of hundreds of incredible songs, how best to navigate his vast legacy? And what of the Modfather’s myriad side-projects and lesser-known releases?
Written by MOJO’s team of experts, Paul Weller Essentials tells you everything you need to know to piece together your ultimate Jam, Style Council and solo years collection. As well as reappraisals of every studio LP, we profile non-album tracks and the bevy of live recordings, box sets and rarities compilations that have appeared down the years. Plus we recommend the best Weller literature with which to line your shelves.
With all-new content, dozens of rare and iconic photographs, and Weller’s closest collaborators – Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler from The Jam; Mick Talbot and Dee C. Lee of The Style Council; and Steve Cradock and Andy Crofts from the solo years – revealing their Top 10 favourite tracks, Paul Weller Essentials is an indispensable purchase for all Modfather connoisseurs and serious music fans.
