Originally released in October 2001, Days Of Speed is an acoustic, double live album featuring songs from across Weller's career, including the Jam classics "That's Entertainment" and "Town Called Malice," The Style Council's "Headstart for Happiness" and "Down in The Seine" and solo hits, "You Do Something to Me" and "Wild Wood."

This first-ever vinyl reissue features faithful original packaging replication, cut at London's Metropolis Studios and pressed on 180g vinyl at MPO in France.

A true indicator of the strength of a songwriter's work is how well their material stands up to it being remixed or adapted for other genres or styles. If the songs survive the transition, it's as close to a classic as you can get. Paul Weller's work withstands such adaptations. In 2001, the singer-songwriter toured Europe, playing solo versions of tunes from throughout his already abundant catalog. In their stripped down form - just Weller and a guitar - the songs burst with the same soulful energy and feel just as heartfelt as when he's surrounded by the members of his various bands. Some, like 'Science' (from 1997's Heavy Soul), the title track to his 1993 album Wild Wood, and 'Down In The Seine' (from The Style Council's 1985 album Our Favourite Shop) benefit somewhat from the minimalist performances and the touch of gravel in Weller's voice. The only concerns are the slight distortion that sits around the edges of each tune that a better mastering job might have helped put a damper on. It's not enough to ruin the joys of this release; just enough to set my spine slightly on edge.
