This is the record that demonstrates just how profound the “punk-rock” movement of the 1970s was. For over an hour of sustained excellence, the Clash brought together an amazing array of musical influences to achieve a magical statement about rock and roll history with all its streams and about human freedom. Just a few of the highlights: “Guns of Brixton,” “Revolution Rock,” “Jimmy Jazz,” “Lost in the Supermarket,” and maybe most of all the title track that gets the record off to an irresistible start.
