5.0 out of 5 stars London calling revisted, 20 Sept. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: London Calling - 25th Anniversary Edition [2CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
London Calling was one of my first purchases as a young teenager many years ago...which was a long time ago:-).. It sounded great then, just as it does today, brilliant production, every song is just as good as the one before as you go through the playlist and in my eyes, the best Clash album of all time.
The demo cd is just that, so dont expect anything too fancy. It is what it is, a pre album demo with some interesting takes of the songs at the early stage of composition. Some takes don't have vocals, some do, but above all, still amazing to listen to after all these years and the unreleased songs are more intersting than you could forsee.
The DVD is a bit hit and miss. The interviews were from the same session as "Westway to the world", but leaning towards the london calling era, that I am sure wasn't on the afore mentioned Westway DVD.
The black and white studio footage is priceless, with Guy Stevens shown getting up to his jinks such as throwing chairs and swinging ladders about in the live room, but it doesn't really feature the band actually doing much other than jamming for 13 minutes and joe doing a vocal take.
Live Features; "Clampdown" (complete song), Train in vain and the London Calling promo video.
5 stars for the original album, it would be four stars for the extra material to be honest, but definitly worth the money overall.
