The Crap Has Been Cut.
, 10 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Sound System ( NTSC ) Region 0 (Audio CD)
The Clash were a great band and there legacy will live on.
This box set is testament to a diverse and talented group. They were not afraid to dip their toes in various musical styles. This introduced a whole generation to punk,reggae,rockabilly,dub and many others.
The set itself is very lavish and the remasters sound crystal clear.
My only gripe that it should have included "The Vanilla Tapes" and "Cut The Crap". I know "Cut The Crap" is quite a poor album but as a reference point of how a label try to trade on a name once all the major players but one have gone it is vital.I guess Sony wanted only the best stuff here and The Clash's cool image not to be tainted.
Don't get me wrong The Clash are great and the five stunning albums in this set should be in every collection. The booklets and posters are of fine quality but the big selling point should be the three cd's of extras and the dvd.
