Got this thing in the mail today—The Singles, a 19-CD set of every Clash single, packaged in lil' replicas of the original 7" sleeves. Each A-side is paired with every B-side from every country, every 12" promo version, etc., etc. This means the "London Calling" disc has seven tracks, and "The Magnificent Seven" (disc 14) has eight. Most of the others have two or three. A total of 66 tracks—that's probably two full-length CDs, maybe three at most. But heck, it sure is purty. Aging punks, whip out those platinum credit cards. Joe would have wanted it this way. Right?

(no reflection on the quality of the actual music which is fucking awesome and life-altering, yada yada, blah blah blah...)
