The Clash Hits Back 180g Import Vinyl 3LP

180 gram audiophile vinyl, Printed innersleeves 60x60 poster, Remastered audio!

Definitive best-of collection on three platters containing all the hits. Includes large 60x60cm poster! Since their formation in 1976, the Clash evolved from a fiery punk group into the most iconic rock band of their era.

The Clash Hits Back features 32 of the band's iconic tracks, across a 3LP set. 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 8 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 & Topper. The best of album is sequenced to copy the set played by the band at the Brixton Fair Deal (now the Academy) on 10 July 1982,rounded out with big numbers that failed to make the set that night.

The Fair Deal was a special venue for the Clash, Paul Simonon told the Guardian, because of the memories the venue held as the cinema he and Mick Jones went to as children. "It's actually where I saw my first ever pop show," Simonon said. "We all turned up as 10-year-olds, and they said: 'Right, boys and girls, we've got a special surprise for you—we're not going to show you a film!' So everyone was: 'Booooo.'

'No. we've got a special surprise—we have Sandie Shaw!' And Sandie Shaw came on, and she was going on about not having any shoes. So we had an hour set from her, and that was my first pop concert."

The actual set the band played that evening has the song "Bankrobber" as the 5th tune, not the 8th. This is verified by audience recordings from the show. The band entered the stage to the sound of "La Resa Dei Conti (For A Few Dollars More)" by Ennio Morricone.
