10" Vinyl LP
Remastered from the Original Master Tapes Specifically for this Vinyl Release
Limited Edition of 5,000 Copies!
Black Market Clash was originally released as a 10" EP in 1980 between London Calling and Sandinista! This stunning collection of songs quickly became a cult favorite among Clash fans. The mini album collects a few B-sides, rarities, and obscure tracks unavailable in the U.S. at the time of the records release.
Most songs and/or versions have been long out-of-print in any format. Though the CD Super Black Market Clash (SBMC) collects some of these tracks, it doesnt contain Capital Radio One, Cheat, Bankrobber/Robber Dub, or Armagideon Time. The version of Pressure Drop is different from both the one on the CD and the original release (SBMC uses the original B-side mix), as is Justice Tonight/Kick It Over.
Drastic Plastic Records is proud to bring this fan favorite back into print on 10" vinyl for a limited time.

Customer Reviews for Black Market Clash

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
