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

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

An astonishing reminder of exactly why the Clash were once considered to be the greatest rock & roll band in the world, From Here To Eternity follows the band from the humble stage of London's Music Machine to New York's Shea Stadium enormo-dome. Along the way, the band steadily gravitate from rough and ready punks to fully-fledged, international rock icons. Their artistic remit swiftly expands from the three chord cavalry charge of their eponymous debut ("What's My Name") through London Calling's fierce embrace of genre-vaulting fusion ("Armagideon Time") to the assured swagger and radical chic of their Combat Rock swan-song ("Should I Stay Or Should I Go"). Pure, unalloyed energy erupts from the speakers as Joe Strummer spits self-righteous vitriol, Mick Jones chops hippie complacency into toothpicks with his trusty six-string and Paul Simonon anchors the resultant passions to Topper Headon's rock solid percussive foundations. Undeniably awesome. --Ian Fortnam

5.0 out of 5 stars The Magificent Four 8 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It starts with "Complete Control" shaking the foundations of your house. You have to remember that the sound you are hearing is being made from just four guys playing live in front of an audience. The first half of the CD parades live versions of some of their early classics, all played very well. The 1982 version of "Career Opportunities" sounds a little slower than the 1977 original, but otherwise the live versions are as good, if not better, than the studio versions. The live version of "Capital Radio 2" (based on the "Cost of Living E.P." version and different from the free "Capital Radio 1" single) is an example of the live version blowing the studio version away.
Then we get the later tracks (from "London Calling" onwards). These are slower and quieter than the ealier stuff, but there are some fine versions. "Magnificent 7" is brilliant - 100 times better than the version that appeared on "Sandinista". Another surprise is "Guns of Brixton" which sounds so much better than the version on "London Calling". There are a couple of tracks towards the end of the CD which maybe should have been excluded, but on the whole a brilliant live album which helps show just why the Clash had so much respect.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic live music 29 Dec 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Make sure you read the booklet;the Clash fans' devotion to the band is fitting for a band that loved their audience.
Great music,though most of it was recorded on the last US leg of the "Combat Rock" 1982 tour.Joe Strummer(RIP)is at his snarling best,the music is really rocky,even on the reggae("Armageddon Time")and the audience at the various shows are really up for it.
If you ever saw the Clash,you'll have wonderful memories evoked.If you didn't,you'll fel like one of the fans who writes in the booklet that he would sell his grandmother if it meant he could see the Clash live.
RIP Joe-what songs are you teaching the angels now?!?

5.0 out of 5 stars From here to eternity, Joe RIP 12 Jan 2003
Format:Audio CD
I stumbled on this live CD`s only recently whilst looking for Strummer related material after his very shocking and saddening death.I am very selective when it comes to live albums ensuring that a band has the quality to produce powerful and tight music without the luxury of endless overdubs.This album is a fantastic journey through the clash`s career with superb recordings of well crafted and well executed tunes.From the opening chords of complete control you know this is special live album.The highlight for me has to be White Man in Hammersmith Palais.You will find this CD on nice price so get a copy,turn up your stereo and raise a glass to Joe RIP.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is incredible! 11 Dec 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Clash have truly surpassed themselves with this release of live recordings from the late 70's /early 80's. The album features a good selection of songs made even better by the electricity of a live set. Standout tracks include 'White man','Train In Vain', and a fantastic version of 'The Magnificent Seven'. This is The Clash at their best; electric guitars, catchy basslines and incredible lyrics. If you only buy one Clash album, buy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a live album should be 5 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Listening to this took me back to the late 70s/early 80s when I saw loads of bands. The Clash were then out on their own in terms of passion, musical talent and sheer energy. This album only reinforces that view and shows that they were probably the best band to emerge from the punk revolution. Rebellion, attitude and atmosphere - that sums up The Clash. Makes most of today's bands look pretty sad by comparison!

5.0 out of 5 stars Why The Clash are still so popular today ? 28 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
and Why is this album is a better reflection of their work compared to any of the compilation/box sets?
Just take the time to Listen to "White man in Hammersmith Palais" in any previous recording and as brilliant and memorable as it will be your world will be rocked by the Live version found here.
Even, the little things in the other songs like changing the line from Career Opportunities:
"I don't want to die in the tropical heat" to
"I don't want to die in a Falklands Street",
show that the band didn't consider their best songs as written in stone and like all successful forms of mass communication songs / stories / can evolve and develop.

5.0 out of 5 stars i'd give 6 stars if possible 20 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Regret to say i wasn't very familiar with the Clash other than Rock the Casbah and Should I Stay, so took a change and appeared to be magnificent.
What a rush of energetic songs appear on this Live album it's worth every single dime.

Most people know about the Live at Shea album, but, this is a much better live album for Clash fans, both new & old. The "encore" track of 'Straight to Hell' is a brilliant ending.
