I feel The Clash needs no introduction so I'll just give you the way this selection has been compiled:
- Every album (including 1985's controversial Cut the Crap) has been fully considered and the tracks selected for their quality.
- Double (London Calling) and triple (Sandinista) albums have respectively been considered as 2 and 3 albums hence the number of tracks from each of those two.
- There is no rarity nor live cuts in this compilation. However, a few of these tracks have only been released as singles.
- 39 songs may seem like an awful lot when considering the brief history of The Clash. I feel that's how much was needed to accurately describe The Clash's evolution on the bumpy road to hype, fame, stardom and fall.
Enjoy "Straight to Hell" for what it is: an honest work from an honest blogger that have no other ambition but to share his passion from one of the most important acts of the last 40 years.
