Product Description

Amazon.ca

In a few short years, the Clash transformed themselves from one of English punk's hardest-edged bands to an adventurous outfit with their hands in reggae, dub, dance, and funk. Nowhere is that range more evident than this collection of singles spanning their entire career, from the three-chord fury of "White Riot" through the swooning pop of "Train in Vain" to the dance groove of "Rock the Casbah." While no substitute for the likes of the self-titled debut, London Calling, or Sandinista!, The Singles does offer up a succession of tunes that helped make the Clash the world's biggest punk band. The addition of two tunes not released on any of their original albums ("Bankrobber" and "This Is Radio Clash") add to the value of this retrospective. --Rob O'Connor

4.0 out of 5 stars Has all the Hits & some misses. Sept. 25 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I gotta admit I like the more commercial Clash more than the 70s punk Clash. Tracks like Train in Vain, Rock the Casbah, Should I Stay or Should I Go, London Calling & I Fought the Law are great but I can do without the rest. Worth the money I spent on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Nov. 27 2012
By Langer
Format:Audio CD
Has all the tunes this band is best known for. Great tongue-in-cheek liner notes. Reveals a very fun band that doesnt take itself that seriously

4.0 out of 5 stars finally all the singles in one place Dec 18 2010
By Brian Maitland TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is a five-star CD for the music but CBS blew it by not including some B sides of those same singles. Was there no room for "1977" (flipside to "White Riot")? I don't get it. Throw us longtime fans a bone, eh, as I'm tired of trying to convert my vinyl to MP3s!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a "Greatest Hits" band Aug. 5 2009
Format:Audio CD
The premier band of the late 70's/early 80's was never a hit-focused band - perhaps with the exception of their final fractured disc, Combate Rock.

I strongly suggest London Calling, their debut, or Sandanista! over this collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a start Aug. 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a alright cd, but i have some problems with it. First to start with it's a great cd, especially for first listeners. For us others that take the the clash more serious its quite horrible and doesnt rate good at all. but with my experience with the cd its what got me into the clash. you can feel the energy of Joe Strummer and Mick Jones (two brilliant song writers). also it sort gives you a idea of all the different songs the clash wrote. but thats not completely true because most of the songs are quite pop like. you totally miss things like combat rock where most of the cd is what people call today reggae. the other problem i have with the cd is that its not the greatest sound quality. for you people that buy lots of cd's probably wouldnt know this but if you want the best sound quality as possible (which was quite essential for the clash) then i insist on getting their albums on tape. they sound alot better. its like i said, its a good cd if you have never the clash before but if you do listen to them expect suprises. they were not a punk band at all. they wrote all different kinds of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Introduction cd March 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
If you have never heard the clash before or are interested in hearing thier music i say get this cd or London Calling- both are great cd's. Some of the best songs on this album are london calling, train in vain, i fought the law, Rock the casbah, and should i stay or should i go. Excellent collection of classics and Highly recomended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good, But... March 20 2004
By Chazz
Format:Audio CD
This is a good compliation. There's only one problem. If you star out on it, you're going to want to buy more. Trust me. I started on this compilation. I loved it so much, I ended up buying all their albums (except for Combat Rock.) The Clash are a life-changing kind of band.
Highlights include: White Riot, Complete Control, Clash City Rockers, White Man in Hammersmith Palais, Bankrobber, The Call Up, and Rock the Casbah.

1.0 out of 5 stars a downhill rollercoaster ride Dec 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
starts off strong and plummets in its dyre existence. i do not like the almost disco sound of the 80's clash. singles/best of cds should never be made. it spells two words. CASH IN.
