There are mp3 samples available at Amazon.co.uk to give you a chance to listen to the rarities and live tracks but I haven’t seen them at Amazon.com

I should go on about what an important album this is in the development of rock music and how it saved the world from endless re-runs of Tales From The Topographic Oceans.

I’ve got some sympathy with that view but I preferred The Clash at the time and I still do together with Television and Talking Heads from the New York punk movement. Many people think I’m wrong since Never Mind The Bollocks has been highly rated by both the NME in the UK and Rolling Stone in the USA in their best ever albums lists.

I can live without it but I can understand why others think it is essential and, if you’re going to have the studio album, you may as well have the live tracks as well.

What People Say

Unfortunately Amazon haven’t managed to separate the comments between all the different versions.
