Image of The Clash


The Sex Pistols may have been the first British punk rock band, but the Clash were the definitive British punk rockers. Where the Pistols were nihilistic, the Clash were fiery and idealistic, charged with righteousness and a leftist political ideology. From the outset, the band was more musically adventurous, expanding its hard rock & roll with reggae dub and rockabilly among other roots ... Read more in Amazon's The Clash Store

This is a nice little compilation, originally released in the late 1970's to gather together a few random Clash oddities.

Targeted at the American market the album comprised of material which hadn't at that time appeared on any other Clash album - the exceptions being a couple of tracks already released on the UK version of the band's debut album which had been excluded from the US version.

Is it a compilation still worth buying today?

Well, that depends. In the 1990's the CD was expanded and rebranded as Super Black Market Clash. So if you're after a ton of extra bonus tracks, with modern remastering, that's probably the way to go. However, this original CD edition has a completely different flow, with the entire second half of the album being a Dub Reggae experience - and the extended mix of Bank Robber appearing here is far superior to that included on Super Black Market Clash.

my only gripe with the original shorter tracklist is that 1977 (the B-side of the White Riot single) should have been included, and Time Is Tight (a fairly pedestrian instrumental, which to the blindfolded listener could have been any 1970's AOR band ) should have been left off.

Anyway. Buy it. Play it loud.

not a bad cd, do like the extended version of bank robber, which was difficult to find in normal cd shops.

A lot of people want to get some justice tonight 9 Oct. 2007
By Boxodreams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
OK, mobsters, even with the clear telling by a reviewer of Super Black Market Clash how that steroidal bastardization came about, it still doesn't make a lot of sense not to have this, the real thing, out on the market. The Clash had our hearts and minds when this came out in 1980, an Epic label "Nu DISK," which meant a little 10-incher going for maybe $5.99 The songs were listed as being from 1977 to 1980, but it didn't play like a comp. First side was a rockers dream, wtih "Capital Radio One" the right out manifesto, "Pressure Drop" sounding like an amped up Madness channeled by the Clash, the goregous instrumental "Time is Tight" wrapping it up. Then, on to Side 2, where three of the greatest tracks in dub history are laid down in order, sinking you deeper into the vortex, the dread, the soul, everything deeper and deeper into the sound of music as the secret other, answering questions about politics, rhythm, existentialism, night time. The three songs should never be broken up. So, I would say don't think you have this by having "Super Black Market Clash" because some of the songs aren't even on that. This is what you want and you probably don't have to work that hard to find it. Ah, sigh, revisionist history. Don't be fooled. Demand the real thing, always.

Black Market better than Super Black Market 8 July 2009
By lewis sinclair - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the one I had been looking for. I used to have the album, then I sold it and thought I was buying it on cd but bought Super Black Market Clash. The songs are not the same. Bank Robber is hashed up on Super. It is much better on this one.

This is a bastard child of the Clash ouvre. In spite of all the odds it succeeds as a CD you want to own to listen repeatedly. Not because you realise it is a stellar collection of odds 'n sods, but because it has a mess that you sinfully wish to share only with close friends and other relatated initatiates into its kabbalistic charms. Not LONDON CALLING, not GIVE 'EM ENOUGH ROPE, not COMBAT ROCK, but the black sheep of the family, the one you dare not mention anyone's name. Outstanding tracks include "Cheat" and "Robber's Dub." Even when illegitimate The Clash RULES!

Not a huge fan of the Clash, but got that song bank robber stuck in my head. This album is worth it simply for that song!
