If I could have gave it more stars i would have.

I've read quite a few of these reviews and I don't think people should call this a "punk" LP. I have been the proud & not-so-proud purchaser of over 12,000 LP's ... I have some pretty raw Punk records "the Clash" 1st LP was Punk....not London Calling.

London Calling was in my opinion the best LP of all time....everysingle song is excellant...Spanish bombs is my favourite. Train In Vain was supposed to be a flexible Single included in a Playboy type magazine but that deal fell through so it was late being included in the package.

If there is someone out there thinking about buying this....then do it.
Listen to this 10 times and you will see why this LP has consistently recieved 5 Stars.

Enjoy!

I just purchased this album a few months ago, and have been listening to it nearly every day since. I love how The Clash manages to blend so many styles into their songs. Sandinista! may have more diversity, but London Calling just has stronger and faster paced tracks. Standouts are Hateful, Rudie Can't Fail, The Right Profile, Clampdown, Guns of Brixton, Wrong em' Boyo and Revolution Rock. The only weak tracks are Brand New Cadillac and Lost in the Supermarket, but they are still tolerable and only become filler due to the greatness that surrounds them.

What can I say here that hasn't been said already??? Even the pompus magazine Rolling Stone had the smarts to call this album the #1 album of the 80's (being it came out in late Dec of 1979).
What a fantastic album this is of, ska, punk, reggae, rock songs. And LOOK HOW MANY THERE ARE! 19!!! Who has put out a collection of that many AWESEOME songs for release since??? I can't think of a SINGLE artist since then that has come anywhere close to doing that..
This album just isn't for new found rebelious young kids, it isn't just for aging late 30 40 somethings who relsihed the time, it isn't just for anyone who loves to dance (this album will MAKE YOU MOVE!!), it isn't just for earthy reggae folks, it isn't just for unabashed blue-collar protestors who want to rebel, this album is litteraly UNIVERSAL, everyone can get enjoyment from it.
I have to tell you one of the hardest decisions I had to do was when I was making a recording long ago with some other songs, I tried to have all the songs from this album, but I had to get rid of one of them... I couldn't do it, it was seriously one of the hardest musical decisions omissions I could think of. I was struggling to think if there was even one song on this album that was half ass, mediocore, or just okay that I could omit. There isn't they're all gems!!
Love this album, it will never age, and will always be better after each listen.
If you don't own this album you really need to get it if you love music.

When this came out other than "London Calling" and "Clampdown" I wondered if the Clash had lost the plot. I was never into "Police And Thieves" punk reggae and they went crazy here on this album with "Revolution Rock" and "The Guns of Brixton" and "Rudie Can't Fail" (although the latter is more ska-ish). Throw in the mixes of sounds from what sounds like lounge hitting the pub sounds of the '80s...well, "we" (as in the collective punk us) absolutely thought the Clash had sold out.

Boy, was I wrong! Years later it is my fave Clash LP because it's varied unlike the first two which are straight punk (still great LPs but come on!).

London Calling from the Clash is the basis for any punk music. They even had some reggae styles in songs like Guns of Brixton, Rudie Can't Fail, and Revolution Rock. This whole album is solid with a statement. Well worth the money.

Only the best Clash album ever, and a contender for iconic listen of the angst-ridden, down-trodden, banner-waving segment of society.

The feet must be stirred! The march must be joined! The barricades must fall!

London is calling! Strum on!

awesome album. everything you'd expect, works fine. Definetley a modern pressing, its just a sleeve that the two records come in, i was hoping for a folding case that you usually see with double albums but oh well.

In 1979, Punk was in full swing. Though 1977's "explosion" was beggining to die down, the genre's golden age was far from over. The Buzzcocks were putting out the now legendary Singles Going Steady. The Sex Pistols' Anarchy Tour was in full swing. Black Flag was revolutionizing hardcore with two brilliant E.P.s. The Ramones were going strong with their last great album, Road To Ruin. But 1979's most important contribution to Punk will always be the Clash's masterpiece, London Calling.
At the time, Strummer, Jones, and crew had already put out two albums, the raw, punky, self-titled debut, and the less successful follow-up, Give 'Em Enough Rope. On both albums, they had experimented with Regge ("White Man In Hammersmith Palais"), rockabilly ("Safe European Home") and a variety of other styles. So it seemed natural that their third album, London Calling, should follow in tht same vein.
But nothing, however, could prepare the world from the dizzying multidude of styles, lyrical themes, and genres this album would feature. On it, the Clash experiment witrh regge ("Rudie Can't Fail"), Disco ("Lost in the Supermarket"), Flat-out rock ("Brand New Cadillac"), Pop ("Spanish Bombs"), and even a bit of country ("Jimmy Jazz").
Of course, at heart, London Calling is still a Punk album, full of classic punk anthems such as the title track and "Clampdown." The songs are dominated by singer Joe Strummer's vicious snarl and Mick Jones' crunchy, simple guitar playing.
Another feature that sets London Calling ahead of the pack is it's obvious political smarts. On these 19 songs, Strummer and Jones (and to a degree, bassist Paul Simonon, who wrote "The Guns of Brixton") explore themes of war, crime, poverty, racism, economic disaster, and the like.
