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

This compilation may reek, to some, of a corporate cash-in on one of the greatest bands of all time.
But its content makes it a fantastic addition to the collection of those who cannot get hold of rare slabs of vinyl which contain the tracks featured here.
We get the rawness of '1977' and 'jail Guitar Doors', the power of 'Capital Radio' and the heartaching melody of Mick Jones on '1-2 Crush on You'. Other greats are a top cover of 'Pressure Drop' and Booker T and the MG's 'Time is Tight'. This album is fantastic. Ok it may peter out at the end with remixes etc. but it does show a enjoyable history of The Clash and the way they evolved throughout their career.

Format: Audio CD
The main reason this gets a mention is my kids like it and is a good intro into mind expanding music on a very basic level. It gathers together numerous singles, b sides etc and stops me from rooting out the 7 inch singles and getting up every two-three minutes to blow the dust and change the disc.

It plots the changes from the early 60's punk riffing of 77, Jail Guitar Doors to the later Sandinista work that I never bothered with. However over the years I've grown into it, because the kids play it death. Whereas at the time it came out I would have felt it was a cash in, now it plays along in the background and I know it so well I can sing along to Call Up, the atmospheric Armageddon Times, the largely instrumental Rock the Casbah etc. There is some dross, usually peddled by Mick Jones although Joe produced the greatest stinker with Cut the Crap thankfully not included here.

It is a little mood lifter.

For those of you that are new to the Clash, don't start here - go for 'London Calling' or a 'Best of' package. This album was originally released on both 10" and 12" vinyl (I owned the former) and has now been hugely expanded. Most of the tracks included are not available elsewhere, which makes this an essential addition to the Clash album catalogue. There are some gems
here including material from their experimental Sandinista era. As I found as a teenager, this album requires a little work - give it a few plays - you will find the quality is there and the package will grow on you.

Format: Audio CD
There seem to be many parallels between today and the late seventies. A time of economic depression, a working class trodden down by the conscienceless political rulers and moneyed elite, ethnic tensions simmering, a generation of young people with no future prospects ready to lash out a wave of destruction in the form of riots in protest at the injustices of the world they find themselves in. And the development of a new musical form which encapsulates the passion, the anger and the political stance of the youth. OK, perhaps the similarities end there, as plastic Cowell pop seems to be the hallmark and legacy of this generation, but thirty years ago the social situation gave rise to just such a musical form, Punk. And the prime exponents were the Clash.

This album is a slightly odd entry in the band's oeuvre. Originally released as `Black Market Clash' in 1980, just before the Sandinistas! album, it was a 9 track collection of singles and B sides released in the previous few years. It was updated to a 21 track album and rereleased in 1993 as `Super Balck Market Clash'. Not an album in the traditional sense it lacks some of the coherence and vision of, say, `Combat Rock' or `London Calling'. It is however a fascinating document of the band through their existence, showing their musical versatility and willingness to experiment. Remixes of better known tracks largely work well, especially Mustapha Dance, a remix of Rock The Casbah. The stand out for me is the cover of Booker T's `Time is Tight', which lays down a great groove.

Perhaps not the best place for a new fan to start (London Calling or their eponymous debut would be better), but an essential addition to round out any fan's Clash collection.

So you have all the Clash's studio albums, you even shelled out your hard earned wonga for 'Cut The Crap' because you couldn't resist 'This Is England', plus it completed the set. So where do you go from here? The Shea Stadium live recording is a cool live album but you're not getting anything truly new. This is where this excellent compilation comes into focus, a collection of singles and b-sides, many difficult to find, all conveniently placed onto my favourite sonic medium, the humble cd. From the frantic '1977' to a dub of 'Bank Robber', you can hear the musical journey these boys took and it's a mightily pleasurable experience. If you have the albums, this is an essential addition plus it has what may well be the coolest cover picture ever, a shot of mighty dread Don Letts facing off a multitude of Her Majesty's boys in blue, like the music within, perfect.

Aw yeah - this is just a must have.

Ok, so it's a bit mixed up but worth the purchase price for Groovy Times and Gates of the West alone - honestly! Two cracking proto-London Calling tracks that are so melodious and riff-tastic. If you like I'm not down and Train in Vain then buy this!!!! I had these two tracks on free single with Pearl Harbour (originally on Cost of Living EP, speaking of which Capital Radio Two gives you a real insight into the live Clash experience and the sense of humour of Strummer et al. Spend £[] or so pn this - it's a major bargain - some filler but some real gems -one for real Clash enthusiasts!!

Ok baby, rock esta noche - Strummer RIP, MJ - you're my guitar hero for sure.
