5.0 out of 5 stars THE REAL ESSENTIAL CLASH, 26 Jun 2009
This review is from: The Clash - Singles [Box Set] (Audio CD)
Having waited years for this release when it finally arrived it was like all my Christmas coming together as this singles box set has it all.

Including all the singles even 1985s This is England this is definitely a release any hardcore Clash fan will want to have. The real pleasure begins when you open the box and see all the singles are presented in their original covers and even the discs are made to like the old singles and for one split second i thought i had picked up the wrong format. That worry was soon forgotten when i realised what they had done.

The thing with the Clash was they were actually a real singles band in that they just didn't release recycled album tracks they actually had stand alone singles. Such as Radio clash, Complete Control and the brilliant (white Man) in hammersmith Palais, you also get the Cost of Living ep. As you would expect the artwork for their singles was always top notch.

So what you get is 19 singles all presented in their original case, some of the singles include newly added tracks, such as the ones that were released in America, So you end up getting tracks that have never been released on cd before. As some singles had different mixes for different countries. Some of the singles have over seven songs on them. This release is surley meant to be loaded on to your mp3/ipod for full enjoyment.

Included is a booklet which features contributors like Shane McGowan, Ian Brown, Mike D (Beastie Boys), and ex footballer (yes some do have good taste) Stuart Pearce. Even their former manager Bernie Rhodes writes a few words.

Casual Clash fans would probably be better of with the single disc release but for Clash fanatics this is really ESSENTIAL.
