EDITORS’ NOTES

If one is looking for the ultimate one-stop shop for one of rock 'n' roll's greatest bands then look no further than The Clash's Sound System. This set includes almost every studio track the original band made commercially available, including the group's five albums—the UK version of The Clash, Give 'Em Enough Rope, London Calling, Sandinista!, Combat Rock—and then 52 additional audio tracks and 15 video selections that include everything from early demos to interviews to incendiary live performances. The Cost of Living EP, Super Black Market Clash, the classic "White Man In Hammersmith Palais," "Clash City Rockers," "Bankrobber" and "This Is Radio Clash" (a- and b-side) singles all combine to tell a tale that sounds as vibrant today as it did in the late 1970s and early 1980s. 'The Only Band That Matters' may have been an overstatement, but not by much.

I've yet to get it but about Cut The Crap

For the one complaining about Cut The Crap not being there, this box set was remastered by Mick Jones and that was the only album he was not in because he left the band. He has said this is the last time he will be involved with any releases dealing with The Clash. So before complaining about it being one album short do your research.

Definitive Collection

Well, if you can afford it, this is the one to get. Me, I'd cherrypick this and make a perfect single CD out of it. Only London Calling should be kept as a whole, since it coheres beautifully, and is one of the great rock albums. Have fun!

great but not perfect

remastered tracks sound super clean so it's probably worth buying if you are a real fan and can withstand the nosebleed price. however, it's missing a lot of miscellaneous tracks, such as the full set of alternative versions of the combat rock songs known as the Rat Patrol at Fort Bragg bootleg, the extra tracks on the 25th anniversary london calling, etc. a real disappointment in my book, especially if you were looking to become a completest through 1 purchase. the packaging is huge and looks exactly like you expect from the original album packaging and classic look and feel of the band.
