August 15 1980 saw the follow-up to The Jam's Going Underground/Dreams of Children Number One with a bullet single in the form of Start! backed by Liza Radley released. It was the eleventh single from The Jam, written by Paul Weller and produced by Vic Coppersmith and it was the lead single for the band's fifth LP Sound Affects.
Entered the chart at #3 and two weeks later it was #1 (for a week).
From The Jam. - Okay so there's two thirds of The Jam playing on it so it possibly shouldn't be called a cover version!
