Agreed my good man.
Marky, this sounds great and the running order is also very natural. Thanks!
Cheers Kory glad you're enjoying it. I did lots of versions of the tracklist and felt this worked best.
As alluded to before, Hitsville works way better far from the beginning.
Yep that was Wolt who pointed that out. When listening back it was obvious that it didn't do the running order any favours being chucked in so early.
Junco also too early on the original album imo.

Yeah. But I thought LC had odd choices on side one, namely BNC and JJ.

We differ there, in that BNC rules, and JJ is a nice cool down before hateful/Rudie.

I think the running order LC is perfect wouldn't change a note.

Co-sign.

S! and CTC are the only Clash albums that I feel are hampered on first listen by running order. The difference is S! is easily fixable.

All those great songs they wrote for LC, why have a cover in second position?

London Calling the song is so iconic and BNC seems so lyrically throwaway in comparison. They needed another heavy-ish statement. The jump is a bit incongruous.

I disagree, not just for my love of BNC but because as a song it still gives it the bollocks. I can't not hear it in the car, crank the volume up, shout along and feel like the coolest bastard ever. Great at number 2 for me.

The shakers and wood block on The Leader. First time I've heard them.

I'm moving on to part 2 tomorrow.
