Jake Thackray audio and video – what’s available

‘Jake in a Box’ is the definitive collection, containing over 100 songs, including all Jake’s studio recordings and a host of unreleased out-takes and rarities. The 4 CD set, with excellent liner notes, is no longer available new in CD format, but it can be purchased from Amazon as an mp3 download for a mere £8.49. It can also be heard on streaming services.

On CD there are currently only two ‘best of’ compilations available – ‘The Very Best of Jake Thackray’ and ‘Lah-Di-Dah’. They contain nothing which is not on ‘Jake in a Box’.

The two CD version of ‘Live Performance’ includes the entirety of an outstanding performance from Jake in 1970. It is now deleted, but copies do turn up online.
Jake’s original vinyl albums turn up regularly on eBay. See the archive section of the site for more details. Note that the live album, ‘Jake Thackray and Songs’, remains unavailable on CD or digitally.
