Here are three ways to (re)discover THE CLASH:



SOUND SYSTEM Box Set
Stunning 12 disc boxset containing 11 CDs + DVD. All newly remastered by The Clash with award-winning engineer Tim Young! Three CDs featuring rare tracks, demos, non-album singles and B-sides. DVD including unseen Julian Temple footage, early Super 8 film shot by Don Letts, all the band's promo videos and previously unseen live footage. Owner's Manual booklet. Folder containing reprints of 'Armagideon Times 1 & 2 and Armagideon Times 3 (new edition of fanzine compiled and designed by Paul Simonon). Merchandise; dog tags, badges, stickers and a Future Is Unwritten note book designed by Harland Miller. An exclusive photo poster. Oh, and their first five albums spread over eight discs!

Five Studio Albums (8CD Box)
2013 eight CD box set containing digitally remastered editions of the first five albums from the British Punk quartet, often referred to as 'the only band that matters'. Each album comes in vinyl replica packaging. Contains the original UK version of the self-titled first album, Give 'Em Enough Rope, London Calling (on two CDs), Sandinista! (on three CDs) and Combat Rock. All CDs come housed in a box designed by the band.



THE CLASH HITS BACK
2013 two CD set containing digitally remastered versions of 33 of the band's iconic tracks. The tracklisting is sequenced from the band's legendary Brixton Fairdeal show in 1982 and contains the best studio recordings of the full set, plus eight additional iconic tracks. It comes with the original setlist, handwritten by Joe Strummer which he would tape to the back of his Telecaster before each gig. "Every show was different. Joe would spend a lot of time composing the running order, considering dynamics, emotional impact and the key the songs were in. This record is based on Joe's setlist from The Casbah Club UK Tour, Brixton Fairdeal, 10th July 1982". -Mick, Paul and Topper.
