The Clash - The Essential Clash
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

The Clash - The Essential ClashThe loss of Joe Strummer launched the sort of revival that he despised—and tried to avoid, with his continual rejection of reunion offers. Despite his principles, Strummer was also practical and cared deeply about The Clash’s place in history. Before his untimely death, he agreed on the band’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and selected the 40 songs for this two-CD retrospective set. He chose wisely. From “White Riot” to “The Magnificent Seven,” it’s an impressive, vital body of work.
