Caffé Latté presents the all-time
THE FREEWHEELIN’ BOB DYLAN
The Clash unleashed its 3rd studio album 'London Calling' as the 1970s was nearing its end and the punk / new wave movement was flourishing in Britain and the USA.
This new album highlighted the strengths of the band. It showcased the songwriting talents of Mick Jones and Joe Strummer. Paul Simonon contributed the track "The Guns Of Brixton". Drummer Topper Headon kept the pace snappy and efficient.
On 'London Calling', The Clash injected new musical styles into its sound. Added to its reggae and punk cocktail, is ska, rock and pop. Wisely, The Clash shift moods regularly. For instance, "The Card Cheat" and "Wrong 'Em Boyo" are a world apart from "Lover's Rock" and far removed from the sound of the band's high profile songs. The tracks pack a punch over the 4 sides of this double album.
Among the other standouts are the title song, "Spanish Bombs", "Clampdown", "Death Or Glory", "The Right Profile", "I'm Not Down", "Lost In The Supermarket", "Train In Vain" and "Four Horsemen".
