5.0 out of 5 stars Best Clash collection avaliable!, 28 Sep 2004
This review is from: The Essential Clash (Audio CD)
Like most people, I had only heard London Calling, when i decided to buy this CD. I was stunned right from the first song (white riot) and now, three or four months later i am a big Clash fan and have every CD possible. CD 1 has the best songs form 1976-1978, and highlights include: (White Man) in Hammersmith Palais, White Riot, Safe European Home, Tommy Gun and loads more. This is early punk at its finest with great music and lyrics from the late, great Joe Strummer.
CD 2 has best songs from 1979(London Calling)-1985(End of The Clash). Highlights include:London Calling, Clampdown, Spanish Bombs, Magnificent 7, and definitely Rock The Casbah. Dissapointed The Call Up has not appeared. (I'm glad it has included This Is England, as other Clash compilations do not include songs off a Mick Jones-less and Topper Headon-less clash album called Cut The Crap - the last Clash album.)
This Cd is where The Clash moved on from punk and explored other styles of music and produced some great songs.
Well worth a tenner if your a rock music fan!!!
