The Clash / London Calling reissue

Sony are reissuing The Clash‘s London Calling album in a number of different physical editions.

The band’s third studio album was issued in December 1979 and this campaign recognises this 40th anniversary in tandem with a new exhibition on The Clash and the album being held at the Museum of London later this year. There is no bonus audio at all in these new reissues, so what exactly are we getting…

There is a 2LP vinyl edition which comes in a special clear slip case printed with Ray Lowry’s artwork, which slides off to reveal the Pennie Smith photo below. There’s also a two-CD edition with the same ‘slipcase’ sleeve, that actually came out a couple of weeks ago.

The most ‘super deluxe’ version is a ‘scrapbook’ edition which actually puts all the audio back onto one disc, but sets it within a 120-page hardcover book with “rarely seen” content from the band’s personal archives, including handwritten lyrics, Ray Lowry drawings, fanzines, original press cuttings and band images. It sounds good, but it should be for the £40 asking price.

By the way, even though it doesn’t look like it from the mocked-up image above, this scrapbook also has the special removable clear slipcase.

As mentioned, the two-CD reissue is already available, but you can pre-order either the vinyl or the scrapbook edition, both of which will be released on 15 November 2019.
