“From the mighty pen of Ian Snowball. Have read all of his books and he’s always passionate about his subject. This one’s no exception. Paul Wellers studio work album to album, Solo and Style Council through to The Jam. Brilliantly researched with some insider interviews from many of the main players including the man himself. What’s not to like…great book about of one this country’s greatest songwriters….” Amazon Review
“A ‘must have’ for Weller fans, TSC fans, and Jam fans! A perfect accompaniment to your cd/album collection. I’ve particularly enjoyed sticking an album on and reading about it’s background/ making whilst listening. Another Snowy classic! 5 stars.” Amazon Review
