London Calling (Bonus Tracks)

London Calling by The Clash
Released: Dec 1979
Label: Epic
The Clash's masterpiece retains the convincing fire of their earlier LPs, but lets their passion loose across a range of styles. Whether they're playing old-fashioned rock 'n' roll, skanking behind a brass section or letting their love of reggae shine, each track sounds like a perfectly natural extension of what they always did best: make you dance and think at once. This version adds a second disc of rehearsal tapes, which aren't quite as revelatory as, say, The Basement Tapes, but will still reward devotees who want to hear how these songs evolved.
