This September, Epic Records will release the 25th Anniversary Edition of one of the most important albums of all time: "London Calling" by THE CLASH.
In honor of the band and the milestone, a 3-CD package of the album is set for release, featuring the previously unheard lost demos, "The Vanilla Tapes," recently found in guitarist Mick Jones' lock up, which include a number of tracks that never made the final cut of "London Calling."
The third disc of the 25th Anniversary Edition of "London Calling" is a DVD and features a 45-minute Don Letts-produced documentary, including newly discovered footage of producer Guy Stevens and The Clash in the recording studio, previously unused live performance footage, interviews with each of the band members and - for the first time ever - Kosmo Vinyl telling his side of the story.
There will also be an expansion on the original packaging including rare Pennie Smith photos (who took the iconic cover shot of the album), notes by Tom Vague and a lyrics booklet.
The 25th anniversary issue of "London Calling" is out tomorrow. This is a 3 disc set - 2 audio CDs and a DVD.
This deluxe edition includes the original album and a second CD of material found by Mick Jones including all the album tracks plus 2 bonus tracks that did not feature on final album "Lonesome Me" and a cover of Dylan's "The Man In Me".
The bonus DVD includes 32 min doc, directed by Don Letts, and previously unseen footage of the band during recording of the album at Wessex Studios. A booklet includes previously unseen photographs by legendary rock photographer Pennie Smith.
