I agree, Sandy produced a fantastic album. The album gets basted with "American Sound" comments all the time. This view is incorrect, I think The Clash were after a more modern production after hearing how NMTB turned out.

For those that don't have it here is a copy of the original "End of the Trail" postcard by Adrian Atwater. Perhaps they saw it when recording the guitar tracks in San Francisco? We don't know much about the history of the album cover.

The first three tracks will rival the first three of any other album ever.
Ironic that the best two produced Clash albums were done by the "Old Guard"

Props to Hugh Brown.
The album cover art, designed by Gene Greif, combined a painting, “End of the Trail for Capitalism” by Berkeley artist Hugh Brown, which Strummer and Jones saw displayed at a punk rock hangout they visited during breaks while working at San Francisco’s Automatt studio with a '50s postcard titled “End of the Trail.” Photographed by Adrian Atwater, it featured cowboy Wallace Irving Robertson’s lifeless body being picked apart by vultures.

6 for me too. The opening 3 plus Stay Free, GotR (maybe not classic but very good) and All the Young Punks.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.
