Cover artwork for The Jam's debut album 'In The City' released in 1977.
Martyn Goddard recalls, "Bill's (Smith) concept for the cover was to photograph the group in an urban locationfeaturing a wall of white tiles with graffiti sprayed logo, as the album was 'In The City'. I thought of all the problems a location shoot would incur because of the need to spray paint on a wall and the permissions and permits that would be required. The shoot would aslso take time, as we needed to produce front, back and inner sleeve images. It was decided to shoot in my studio in Kensington Church Street using a couple of 8'x4' flates tiled in 4 inch white Crystal tiles. I can't remember whether it was budget or time constraints but Bill and I tiles the flats the morning of the session, and it was Bill who took the black spray paint and in one attempt produced the iconic logo on the white ceramic tiles as the glue was setting".

A great print deserves a great frame. At Rockarchive we would be delighted to advise you on how best to select the right frame for your print. Please just let us know when you place your order or contact us once you have received your print and we will discuss the various options with you.
If you live in London we can arrange to get your print framed for you. Once the print is framed you can either collect it from our London Rockarchive Studio, in Kentish Town or we can arrange for it to be delivered to your London address (at an extra charge).
If you live elsewhere in the UK, we can arrange to get smaller sized prints framed and shipped to you. However due to postage regulations acrylic (eg perspex) rather than glass needs to be used in the frame.
If you live outside of the UK, we are sorry we are unable to ship framed prints to you.
