The Clash - s/t LP


Sold Out

Label: Sony

Debut album by The Clash released in April 1977. Songs on the album were composed by guitarists Joe Strummer and Mick Jones, with the notable exception of the reggae cover "Police and Thieves" by Junior Murvin. Several songs from these sessions, including "Janie Jones," "White Riot," and "London's Burning" became punk classics and were among the first punk songs to see significant presence on singles charts. The album featured Jones and Strummer sharing guitar and vocal duties, with Paul Simonon on bass and Terry Chimes on drums. The album was not released in the US until 1979, making it their second US release. The US version also included a significantly different track listing, changing the track order and swapping out several songs for non-album tracks recorded in the interim. This reissue contains the original UK track list.
