The Clash – The Clash (1977, original German CBS & 1979, original Canadian Epic).
First off Happy Birthday to #joestrummer who would have celebrated his 65th birthday today!
Ok, another interesting difference in UK vs US releases of the debut self-titled LP from #theclash. Visually the UK (represented by my German pressing) cover border is green with Clash logo at bottom right corner, while US (or Canadian version) has blue border with logo at top right corner. The UK release was on April 1977 while US appeared January 1979 and included a bonus 45 single (SWIPE ◀️to view). The track listing is where it gets interesting – 14 in UK with 15 in US pressings. In a nutshell, US album added excellent singles ‘I Fought the Law’, ‘White Man in Hammersmith Palais’, ‘Complete Control’, ‘Clash City Rockers’ as well as ‘Jail Guitar Doors’. For the four singles #nickyheadon was added as drummer. Omitted on US copy are ‘Deny’, ‘Cheat’, ’Protex Blue’ and ’48 Hours’. So what pressing do you prefer???
