Biography

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

London Calling was one of my first purchases as a young teenager many years ago...which was a long time ago:-).. It sounded great then, just as it does today, brilliant production, every song is just as good as the one before as you go through the playlist and in my eyes, the best Clash album of all time.
The demo cd is just that, so dont expect anything too fancy. It is what it is, a pre album demo with some interesting takes of the songs at the early stage of composition. Some takes don't have vocals, some do, but above all, still amazing to listen to after all these years and the unreleased songs are more intersting than you could forsee.
The DVD is a bit hit and miss. The interviews were from the same session as "Westway to the world", but leaning towards the london calling era, that I am sure wasn't on the afore mentioned Westway DVD.
The black and white studio footage is priceless, with Guy Stevens shown getting up to his jinks such as throwing chairs and swinging ladders about in the live room, but it doesn't really feature the band actually doing much other than jamming for 13 minutes and joe doing a vocal take.
Live Features; "Clampdown" (complete song), Train in vain and the London Calling promo video.
5 stars for the original album, it would be four stars for the extra material to be honest, but definitly worth the money overall.

Don't listen to all the rubbish about sold out, not stuck to their roots etc etc etc. This album is just superb, it is as fresh now as it was when originally recorded. Personally I fail to find a poor track on it, admittedly some are stronger than others, but definately no fillers here. Buy it, enjoy it, and you'll still be enjoying it for many many years to come.

This review is for: London Calling 30th Anniversary Edition, Vinyl Replica Packaging, CD/DVD (Audio CD)

I can't really see the point of another release for this iconic album, especially when it's a far inferior version. This edition is basically the excellent 25th anniversary release minus the Vanilla Tapes (demos) CD which, whilst not everyone's cup of tea, included five unreleased songs and enough of interest to whet more than just the Clash completist's appetite. What you get here is the original album (naturally) and the same DVD as the 25th ann. edition, which includes:

1. The Last Testament: The Making of London Calling (Documentary)
2. London Calling (Video)
3. Train In Vain (Video)
4. Clampdown (Video)
5. London Calling in Wessex Studios (Home Video Footage)

There's therefore nothing new here. Five stars for the original album (read the many plaudits to it elsewhere!) but two stars for this release because we've been here before.

If there are going to be more anniversary issues, then why not the eponymous first album, Give 'Em Enough Rope and Sandinista? This is what we really want.

Remember the scene in the film "Hi Fidelity" where Jack Black berates a customer of the record shop he works in for not having Dylan's "Blonde on Blonde". Some albums really should be available on the national cirriculum. Thus in the same vein if you do not own the Clash's "London Calling" hang your head in shame, don't speak to anyone until you get a copy and greatly worry about the sanity of the person on Amazon who describes this album as "over rated". Green Day and Fall out Boy are better than this? Oh dear your poor deluded soul, get help quick and hope that no ever finds out who you are for you will be forever mocked and subject to the cruel chiding of street urchins.

London Calling has it all, the great Elvis derived cover, the driving title track where you should seek out the Clash's video of this anthem played in sheets of black rain on the banks of the river Thames for the sheer attack that the band pounds into the song. Then there is the barnstorming cover of Vince Taylor's "Brand New Cadillac", the hidden gem that is "Train in Vain" the wonderful "Spanish bombs" and "Lost in a supermarket". Oh look stop me now since I about to go off on one and the dog needs walking. All in all probably the best British rock, punk, psychobilly, r and b and whatever you choose album of the 1970s and therefore one of the greatest albums ever. It has enough energy to power the national grid and increase global warming. Joe Strummer is one of the most missed individuals to depart the planet in recent years and sadly that long desired Clash reunion was always on a hiding to nothing. I still have great memories of a fantastic gig he did with the Pogues (he was producing "Hells Ditch" at that time) and what can only be described a a roaring "Irish" version of London Calling.

What a sparkling rendition of this classic - I'm sure I've heard things in this remaster that I was completely unaware of before (unless of course, it's my imagination...) Best listened to as sequenced on original album sides (somehow makes listening more authentic if you create a playlist and play one original side at a time . . . . or are these just the dabblings of a man approaching 40 ?)
The rehearsal tapes CD included is for fans only - or people who bought this record first time out and can remember and enjoy lo-fi recordings - the recordings themselves are pretty primitive, and pretty rough - you can basically hear 'London Calling'as performed in your local gagage, or, if you jack it up loud enough, you're almost there in the post-punk melee itself.
The intimate handycam footage of the sessions themselves offers a unique insight into how this paragon was created - that, together with interviews of the band, reveal a flourishing creativity in a band truly gelling together for the most effective period in their history.
I never felt so much a-lika a singin' the blues.
