I dont need to tell you about The Clash - you already know !! Great box set of remastered albums - the sound is excellent, you can hear so many more extra little bits of sound that were never clear enough on the original releases !! A lot more clarity on all albums due to great remastering overlooked by Mick Jones. Excellent.

Although I have owned all these albums since their original vinyl releases and have since bought the CD re-issues (including the 25th anniversary London Calling set) I am really pleased that someone picked this out from my wish list for Xmas.
Basically, this is the albums only version of the fuller Sound System set which was released at the same time, with the same gorgeously re-mastered tracks. On the first two albums you won't notice too much difference in the sound, although there is a lot more separation of instruments, but London Calling and Sandanista in particular benefit from the massively increased clarity produced here. On some tracks extra percussion are noticeable (e.g. Magnificent Seven) and in others guitars and horns spring to life (e.g. I'm Not Down). Occasionally, the extra separation seems to make the tracks sound quieter and this is especially the case with Combat Rock, but the benefits of the extra clarity and fuller, clearer bass sounds outweigh this concern. On top of the music, you get all the albums in repro miniature vinyl sleeves (and inner sleeves) and the CDs are even copies of the vinyl with etched grooves (and with a black playing side, which I've not seen before) So, even if you already own all this music, if you are a Clash fanatic you will love this.

I've recently got shot of my entire vinyl collection, so felt justified in buying this box set. I think it represents great value for money. All 5 albums (8 cds in total) are included in a sturdy 'flight case' box. Lyrics, inserts and label facsimiles complement the set. It sounds good too. . .

It's all about the sound, for me, although I do like the mini replica sleeves of the original albums.

The remastering is excellent. Peerless. These are without doubt the definitive Clash remasters. Mick Jones has done a great job. I was finding little bits in some of the recordings I had literally never heard before, despite having listened to the albums for thirty years. This is particularly so in tracks like "Drug Stabbing Time" and "Cheapskates" from "Give 'em Enough Rope", which remasters up very well, as does the debut album. "Sandinista!" scrubs up very well too. They all do, but these are the best ones. They almost sound like new albums. Recommended.

As other reviews have said, great remastering.

The first (eponymous) album & Give 'Em Enough Rope, being more raucous don't benefit as much from the overhaul. Some tracks fare better than others, Police & Thieves, Garageland and Stay Free, Julies Been Working For The Drug Squad respectively, are ones that spring to mind as benefiting most.

The later albums (London Calling, Sandinista! and Combat Rock) are somewhat of a revelation, with a crispness & clarity of sound that was missing from the 1999 remasters, bass clear, separation of instruments clearly audible and percussion noticeable that previously was scrambled in the mix.

I like the packaging which replicates the old vinyl albums, I prefer to listen to whole records (as i did with the originals), London Calling for instance, I'd listen to the first disc then maybe something else or have other things to do. The double album on the one disc was a bit too long for my liking, the same goes for Sandinista!

The lyrics on the inner sleeves are a welcome addition but the type is very small, even with reading glasses I struggle a bit, my eyes aren't what they used to be!

What with this and the 'Hits Back' collection (for (White Man) In Hammersmith Palais, Clash City Rockers, Bankrobber, This is Radio Clash, Complete Control and Armagideon Time), I feel all my Clash remastering needs are covered.

Better put the old 1999 remasters in the car, that'll please the missus!

Format: Vinyl
By crikey, this is one weighty release, quite literally in lbs, £££s and quality.

I always think reviewing punk records on the basis of the sound quality to be a bit pointless myself, as back in the day I don't think anybody listened to a clash record to review the production values of the release. I always think that vinyl is still the perfect medium for punk re-releases, and it heartens me to say this release does not disappoint. The bass is rich and vibrant as was intended, and the tracks remind of simpler times when music was about the raw energy, and you can really feeeel the passion that went into these recordings on this release. Listened to on high-end kit I was looking out the pins again.

A worthy release that should just keep on giving.

Perfect! Sounds perfect, looks beautiful! It's something you should have it if you like The Clash a lot like I do. It came all the way home (Brazil) very quickly. I strongly recommend it!

Just the fact that the cd's look like the original LPs was enough to put a smile on my face but it felt like every aspect of the design of this box was done to make a true fan happy. I'm no sound expert but the remastered songs do sound clearer without losing any of the emotion which can't have been an easy task. Thanks to the Clash
