    Great quality sound, full range and doesn't sound overly synthetic considering the use of such equipment to produce this funky and timeless tune!

      you're pretty much an amateur without a copy of this in your collection. all of the best ideas of 80's electro funk summed up in one record! watch yourself!

        So many seem to be fixated with the TB-303 pattern, and to be honest, you really can't blame them. Yes it was later sampled and perhaps put to good use on other notable productions. But let's make one thing clear here. The famous TB-303 pattern always sounded the best on this, without question. However, I haven't noticed anyone mention the main bassline which underpins everything. Admittedly, it's a simple sequence of notes. But who cares when it sounds so damn phat? And boy is it catchy. Has to be up there as one of the most recognisable basslines of the '80s or forever? The funk is so tough on this. It really comes into its own on the Instrumental. Another extremely phat and recognisable bassline is Time Zone's The Wildstyle (Remix). Of course nothing is complete without some of the tightest, of freshest set of tough beats straight from the renowned electronic beat box.

          I have got the firs and second LP in my record collection and listen to this 2 times a month since 1985.
          Evergreen!

            One of three or four records of the thousands that I have that I ever felt compelled to write my name on. Most of them were Electro tunes ('High Noon' by Two Sisters for example was another) inspired by the growing influence of the grafitti scene on me.

            'Jam on it' is a certified classic 12" single from an album that is probably the best album of the genre. Tim Westwood was always dropping tracks from the LP for his daily Electro show on the pirate radio station 'LWR' in the mid-eighties at a time when there probably wasn't that many tracks to choose from the to avoid repetition over the course of a week. However, no one could ever accuse him of sacrificing standards of quality due to a lack of quantity. Moreover, I suspect the equally killer instrumental version got a decent amount of spins amongst the wider DJ fraternity not to mention my fellow B Boys and B Girls as they tried not to destroy their own home whilst practising spinning on their head in the front room of their parent's house!!!

            Simply wicked...

                By no means the first use of Roland TB 303 but this is a great early example of it, being used for what it became famous for, rather than what it was intended for.

                  I always knew that I had heard a version of "Jam On It" that had a thunderstorm playing during the intro back in 1984. And alas I have proven myself right! I pulled out my old K-Tel Electric Breakdance LP.... and sure enough that version was on there! Did anyone else on here remember that?

                    Although the record states "jam on it (instrumental)" as the track name for the b-side, it really is "jam on revenge (the wikki-wikki song)" on my record. And not even the instrumental version! Nonetheless, I bought this record for the a-side which is one of the best mixed down electro tracks of that period in time. Killer track with one of the finest basslines out there! Already had it on cd but just had to have it on vinyl.
