The Clash: Joe Strummer, Mick Jones (vocals, guitar); Paul Simonon (bass); Tory Crimes (drums). Digitally remastered by Ray Staff & Bob Whitney (Whitfield Street Studios, London, England). This album introduced the world to The Clash, the only group that was on even footing with The Sex Pistols in U.K. punk rock's early days. The Clash avoided the Pistols' sensationalism, singing instead songs about politics, racism, and class warfare. The music's brutal assault, accompanied by Strummer's charismatic vocal style, earned the group attention in its native England, where THE CLASH entered the charts at number 12. This album collects many tracks from the original British release of THE CLASH along with the single "I Fought The Law", and "Complete Control", a song they recorded with legendary Jamaican producer Lee "Scratch" Perry.
