    If Music Could Talk was a promo album released by The Clash in 1981, featuring interviews with all four members (Paul, Mick, Joe & Topper), conducted by long time band associate, Kosmo Vinyl, interspersed with music from the (as then) recently released Sandinista triple album.

The front cover features a photo of Augusto Cesar Sandino - the Nicaraguan anti-imperialist leader and forebearer to the countryís Sandinista movement who in turn provided the inspiration for the album and a Pennie Smith photo on the reverse. Brand new artwork and liner notes come from Kosmo Vinyl. £1 from the retail price of each copy will be donated to War Child.

    London Calling: The Scrapbook

      When The Clash’s third studio album London Calling was released in the winter of 1979, it was clear that the band had made an instant classic, an era-defining masterpiece that stands as one of rock's all-time greatest albums.

      The album is a hugely compelling melting pot of musical styles, driven by a passion for action and a fierce desire for social justice, with lyrics which remain completely relevant today.

      The London Calling Scrapbook is a 120-page hardback companion to the album, of previously unseen archive material, lyric notes, and other exclusive memorabilia, packaged alongside the iconic album itself.

        STAFF COMMENTS

        Martin says: fter the so-so 'Give 'Em Enough Rope', the Clash came back the following year with a double album bursting with fresh ideas (punk, reggae, jazz, rockabilly, ska!) underpinned by amazing songwriting... there's not a duff track on here. Not just a post-punk classic, a classic full stop. Mind-blowing at the time, this is now simply seen as one of the greatest records ever made. Both LP and CD come in special clear slip case printed with Ray Lowry’s artwork, which can be removed to reveal the Pennie Smith photo below.

        London Calling - 2013 Remastered Edition

          "Give 'Em Enough Rope, for all of its many attributes, was essentially a holding pattern for the Clash, but the double-album London Calling is a remarkable leap forward, incorporating the punk aesthetic into rock & roll mythology and roots music. Before, the Clash had experimented with reggae, but that was no preparation for the dizzying array of styles on London Calling. There's punk and reggae, but there's also rockabilly, ska, New Orleans R&B, pop, lounge jazz, and hard rock; and while the record isn't tied together by a specific theme, its eclecticism and anthemic punk function as a rallying call. While many of the songs -- particularly "London Calling," "Spanish Bombs," and "The Guns of Brixton" - are explicitly political, by acknowledging no boundaries the music itself is political and revolutionary. But it is also invigorating, rocking harder and with more purpose than most albums, let alone double albums. Over the course of the record, Joe Strummer and Mick Jones (and Paul Simonon, who wrote "The Guns of Brixton") explore their familiar themes of working-class rebellion and antiestablishment rants, but they also tie them in to old rock & roll traditions and myths, whether it's rockabilly greasers or "Stagger Lee," as well as mavericks like doomed actor Montgomery Clift. The result is a stunning statement of purpose and one of the greatest rock & roll albums ever recorded." - Allmusic.

          The Essential

            This "Essential" collection was being put together before Joe Strummer's death, so it shouldn't be seen as cash-in on the great man's passing away. Instead look at this as being one of the most essential statements by not only one of the leading lights of the punk movement but also one of the greatest bands ever!!!
