Hi Mr Monkton,
The JamPack content itself isn't "Power PC" or incompatible with Lion, it's the installers included on the disk that are.
There are however some installer workarounds that people seem to be touting on these boards. You could do a search - here are a couple:

The problem is, that the installers of the Jam Packs are power pc programs, that will not run on Lion.
The Instruments and loops however still work with Lion.
If you have a TimeMachine backup of your system from the time before the migration, you could try to restore the loops library from your TimeMachine backup, you will need to reinstall all folders and subfolders from
An other approach would be to rip the PowerPC installation disk: If you open the package (ctls click-> Show Package contents) you will see installers for the loop libraries and folders with loops and instruments. An example how to rip those packages is in this thread:
Thanks everyone, I have been to the bullets and bones site and tried opening package contents as per their instructions (similar to the threads supplied - thanks!), but the disc I have V1.0 does not have the Tiger versions (see below). I've tried loading directly from the .pkg files below and I get infinite errors messages and then can't get back into installer. I've still got snow leopard on the macbook (too old to upgrade to Lion) so wondered if I could just copy and paste the instrument and loop files into the imac?
I have time capsule so I will try this route too, if I can work it out.
Have you tried to ctrl-click the RemixTools_Loops.pkg (Show package contents)? That should reveal the loops and you should be able to drag them onto the loop browser in Garageband to install them.
Also ctrl-clicking the Instruments-Package should reveal the instruments folder. These need to be added to your System Library,
/Library/Application Support/GarageBand/Instrument Library,
but you also will need to reindex the instruments. That part should be described in the previous posts.
