Product Description

Product Description

2013 Japanese pressing BLU-SPEC CD2 reissue. Sony

Amazon.ca

Bursting at the seams with creative energy, the Clash's stunning 1979 double album more than made up for the artistic and commercial disappointment of its predecessor, 1978's tried-too-hard Give 'Em Enough Rope. With ex-Mott the Hoople producer Guy Stevens harnessing their sound as never before, the band yielded what proved to be the best work of their career. Bouncing from hard rock (the apocalyptic vision of the title track) to rockabilly ("Brand New Cadillac") to reggae ("Rudy Can't Fail") to pop (the Top 40 hit "Train in Vain"), the Clash knocked down all musical walls and, in the process, ended the argument over punk's viability in the U.S. --Billy Altman --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

This is one of the most famous jacket covers in all of Rock music history. THE CLASH, LONDON CALLING...A punk tribute, The Clash simply killed it with this and to have a disc in print these days for as many years as this one has been ( well over 20 years ) is a true affirmation of just how good this is. The Title Track LONDON CALLING, is simply a legend of a song. Any collection IS NOT COMPLETE until there are certain pieces in it. This is one such piece, there are other pieces which are must haves including, Shawn Phillips "FACES", The Beatles SGT PEPPERS, The Rolling Stones, Let it Bleed, and Exile on Main street. The Definitive KINKS. I suppose I could fill the entire page you get the idea. I think that everyone here has played the game where you create a list of music you would take to a desert island if you had something to play them on. The Clash LONDON CALLING should definitely be on that list...Spigomars

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!

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.

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.

There's a lot that can be said about this album (which has been said already, probably a lot more articulately than I am capable of), and so I'll keep this review relatively brief. I recently bought this album, and I don't regret the purchase one bit. From beginning to end, London Calling is an absolute masterpiece. I'm a huge fan of The Clash's earlier work, particularly their debut album, which is, in my opinion, amongst the best music the 1970's British Punk scene has to offer. However, the wonderful thing about this album is that you don't have to even like Punk Rock in order to enjoy it; on the contrary, "London Calling" is about as far removed from Punk Rock as one can get. Sure, there are Punk overtones, but the 19 tracks on this album are so diverse and varied in their scope that it's literally impossible to not find SOMETHING on here that one can't enjoy. Whether it's the rockabilly of "Brand New Cadillac", the reggae of "Rudie Can't Fail" or "Revolution Rock", the pop rock of "Train in Vain" or "Clampdown", or the undefinable awesomeness of songs like "Hateful" or "The Card Cheat", odds are people are going to find something they like on this album.

For me, there is not a single weak track on this album; on the contrary, every one of these 19 songs is fantastic to some degree or another. "London Calling" is often praised as being one of the best albums of all time, and honestly, I fully support that endorsement - from beginning to end, "London Calling" is a landmark, one of the single greatest accomplishments in the history of rock n' roll, and without a doubt the greatest collection of songs The Clash released in their career. By all means, buy this album - you will not regret it.
