The inside story of The Jam and The Style Council by the man who oversaw their careers!
Record industry executive Dennis Munday's frank account reveals the trials and triumphs of Paul Weller's career, from The Jam's first single in 1977 to the break-up of The Style Council in 1989. He also writes about Weller's post-style Council solo career with a unique insight.
Working for Polydor, the author became a regular presence at the two groups' many recording sessions, effectively becoming an honorary member of both The Jam and The Style Council.
Despite a sometimes stormy relationship with the band members - and eventually leaving Polydor - Munday was the vital link between Paul Weller and his record company or years.
Here then is a uniquely intimate portrait of a rock hero and two influential groups written by someone who was at the heart of the action.
This new edition of Shout To The Top has been updated to include details of Paul's new album 22 Dreams, ongoing changes in the line-up to his band and the emergence of From The Jam, the group featuring Paul's former colleagues Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler which is touring the world performing a set of Jam songs to great acclaim.
